Real in Ronaldo limbo
Monday 28 July 2008
Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster admits the club are in limbo as they wait for Cristiano Ronaldo to make a decision on his future.
The Spanish champions have courted the Manchester United star all summer despite his club's insistence he is not for sale.
Ronaldo, 23, has done nothing to dispel the reports, revealing it is his dream to play for Real and refusing to confirm where he will be playing next season.
However, Schuster is beginning to tire of the protracted saga and claims it is difficult to prepare for next season without knowing whether the Portugal winger will be joining his squad or not.
"As all the world knows, we are interested in signing a player like Ronaldo," he said.
"But it seems as if he won't finish deciding, and all the rest depends on that.
"If this doesn't work out we have other alternatives, but everything depends on how it finishes with Cristiano Ronaldo."
