Barcelona skipper Puyol shrugs off Real Madrid's Ronaldo pursuit

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol isn't bothered if bitter rivals Real Madrid manage to sign Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I don't mind," he commented. "He's part of the ones who make the difference and if Real Madrid finally sign him he will be a great recruit and will up their level a bit.

"As well as [Lionel] Messi he is part of the ones who help the team improve, but at the end of the day collectiveness is always above all.

"The figures they are speaking about are crazy, but football's world is made of this. It seems mad to me, but if they pay this it will be because they think it's going to be worth it."
