This followed on from the David Beckham bullshit, which came from the same newspaper. And as Newcastle didn't agree to pay Beckham $1m a week, the price he was asking, was it surprising that Ronaldo has failed to come to St James' Park?
The fact is ... AC Milan have reached an agreement with Real Madrid over the transfer of their star striker ... that is according to reports in Spain.
This may come as a shock to some (the man having the balls to turn down Newcastle) and one gentleman e-mailed to insist we apologise if he DID sign for the Toon.
And we would be glad to do so. BUT ... he isn't!
