The most dramatic day in not just Real history but in the history of football as Cristiano Ronaldo is unveiled in a Merengue kit at 9 PM tomorrow. So goes the breathless Marca headline. It gets better.
Real fans will be there in the hundreds of thousands to greet their new prophet.
Marca readers also get a free giant poster of a photoshopped Ronaldo in a Madrid kit but as the publication reassures us, it is remarkably lifelike. For the obsessive, there is a blurb documenting his achievements. The back of the poster gives the story of the transfer saga. No such relief for Nereida Gallardo purveyors. There are no pictures of that hot Spanish babe.
