Ronaldo signs for City


Ronaldo fly's into Etihad

Cristiano Ronaldo has completed a shock move to Manchester City from Arsenal

New Manchester City manager Steve Thompson has wasted little time in making his mark on the side with the news that Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo had joined the club from Arsenal in a swap deal which See's Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema head in the other direction to North London. The transfer is sure to be the most talked about in recent times especially when you consider that City have just been relegated for the second consecutive season.

Following the announcement City boss Steve Thompson had this to say.

"This deal signals our intent as a club to get back to the big time sooner rather than later. Cristiano is one of the best players in the world and is a total one off. He has all the attributes to play in either the midfield or attack and i am very much looking forward to getting on the training ground and working with him

We have sadly had to say goodbye to Mesut and Karim as they head off to Arsenal. They are both world class players who i wish i could have kept but getting Cristiano here was number one priority and i am over the moon to get it done so quickly"

Cristiano Ronaldo also spoke after signing his contract.

"The new gaffer signals a new start at this club and i wanted to be part of that. This club has suffered some difficult times of late but with the players we have here i know that can change and i hope i can play a major part of restoring the good times back at Manchester City"
