Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad have
reportedly submitted a bid to Real Madrid for Ronaldo.
Al-Ittihad signed Luis Figo last week and are believed to be keen on
recruiting another high-profile name before the end of the month.
"We are waiting at the moment for a reply from the Spanish club," an
Al-Ittihad official was quoted as saying on Gulf Daily News.
Al-Ittihad president Mansour Al-Balawi has refused to identify his
club's next transfer target, but has hinted it will be a sensational
"I'm afraid I'll shock everyone if I reveal his name now," he said.
Ronaldo is no longer in Fabio Capello's plans and Real Madrid are
considering whether to offload the striker during the January transfer
window, club president Ramon Calderon has confirmed.
However, Calderon insists nobody has yet made a bid for the Brazilian.
