Real Madrid GM Valdano: We didn't ask Pellegrini about Man Utd's Ronaldo

Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano admits they didn't speak to coach Manuel Pellegrini about signing Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.

"They are signings you accept because the strategy of the club has taken us to them," said Valdano.

"But it is a long-term strategy, we started with a cruising speed that is impossible to sustain.

"We didn't ask (coach Manuel) Pellegrini: What do you think of Cristiano, does he suit your taste or not? It's obvious. Florentino delighted the coach with these signings."
