FIFA president relaxed over Ronaldo fee

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has no problems with Real Madrid's record-breaking £80million move for Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo. "It means that our product is still a good product," Blatter said ahead of the Confederations Cup.

"If this is the game of the people, they need stars."

He added: "Okay, it is a lot of money, but he is performing.

"There is still demand to have a star.

"We are on the market, and we are on a very sensitive market nowadays because there is an economic crisis. In football, we are in still on the good market."
