Ronaldo: Relaxed about his price-tag
Cristiano Ronaldo believes that the £80million Real Madrid paid for him is a "fair price" and he is more than comfortable with being the most expensive player in the world.Ronaldo will be officially unveiled as the Spanish giants' latest signing to follow last week's presentations of Kaka and Raul Albiol have already been presented following their respective moves from AC Milan and Valencia. Lyon striker Karim Benzema is close to completing his switch to Madrid as Real's spending spree rapidly approaches the £200million mark - almost quarter of a billion euros.
Despite some disquiet about Real's big-spending policy at a time of economic depression when few other clubs can compete, Ronaldo, never short of self-confidence, believes Madrid are justified in paying the fee - and also feels he can live up to the price tag.
"I think that it's a fair figure. If Manchester United and Real Madrid agree this amount, then there is nothing more to say," he told Spanish tabloid Marca. "The great players cost a lot of money, and if you want them you have to pay it. I'm happy to be the most expensive player in the world."
