Ronaldo registers CR9 fuelling more Real rumours

Cristiano Ronaldo has registered the moniker ‘CR9’as a trademark, fuelling rumours of an impending move to Real Madrid. The digits CR9 were copyrighted in Portugal last month, The Sun revealed, to be used for merchandise or as the name for a restaurant or bar. Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes registered the trademark for him. He already owns the rights to CR7 (pictured). The FIFA World Player of the Year currently wears the No.7 jersey for both club and country, but would be forced to adopt a new one should he move to Real Madrid, as seven is already held by the legendary Raul. Earlier this week, Ronaldo was alleged to have agreed a deal with the Spanish giants, reportedly being promised the No.9 shirt, currently held by Javier Saviola who is being linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu. But Ronaldo himself has issued a fresh statement reiterating his desire to stay with Manchester United. “I intend to win as many trophies as I can with this club for as long as possible," he said. “We are a young team and the future is good. I want to be here and be part of the success that lies ahead. It is great to be part of such a fantastic club. I intend to be here for years and years” Ronaldo says he is targeting more glory with the Red Devils, revealing he wants to make a clean sweep of all the trophies this season. “We are going to try and win the lot, and why not? In my head I know it is possible,” he added. “The priority is to retain the Premier League and Champions League and we have the players, the spirit and desire to do more. We want to make history by winning all five trophies.”
