According to ESPN Soccernet, Real Madrid and Manchester United have completed the 80 million pound Cristiano Ronaldo transfer today. He signed a 6-year contract with the Spanish club. He will be presented to the media and fans on 6 July.

Speculation is that Ronaldo will wear number 9 with Real Madrid. He apparently trademarked a new logo and brand, called CR9. I expect he'll switch to number 9 for the Portugal national team, as well (unless he can't because someone else has claimed the number; I can't see that scenario happening).

I still think this can work out for Manchester United, if Sir Alex makes the right call on replacing him. As of right now, I'm in favor of him spending 30 million pounds on Karim Benzema from Lyon and about 25 million pounds on David Silva from Valencia. Although, United are apparently the favorits to get Luis Antonio Valencia from Wigan for approximately 15-19 million pounds.
