Ron ruins a perfectly good headline by not signing for United…

Cristiano has shocked the powers that be at Old Trafford by failing to turn up for his unveiling as a player yesterday, instead opting to spend the day playing for his current club Real Madrid. 

The Sun reported weeks ago that was due to be unveiled at Old Trafford on August the 8th, yet despite the paper never being wrong and a completely credible source when it comes to transfer activity the move failed the come off.

Many reasons have been cited by unnamed sources somewhere, including ones suggesting simply forgot he’d signed for United, or changing the date at the eleventh hour as not to take the shine away from Rio Ferdinand’s cap selling game at Old Trafford later today.

Another reason by thousands of people who didn’t care if they were named or not was that the story was complete nonsense and is no closer to signing for than he’s ever been and will end up staying at Real this Summer.

Maybe the story was a typo….
