FIFA world player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo a.k.a. CR7 (because he plays with shirt No 7 for Manchester United), has reportedly registered the trademark 'CR9' at the National Institute of Industrial Property in Lisbon.

The digits "CR9" were copyrighted last month in his Portuguese homeland to be used on merchandise or as the name for a restaurant or bar.

He also has a sponsorship deal with a Portuguese bank giving them exclusive marketing rights if he goes to Spain.

Ronaldo already owns the rights to 'CR7' but rumours are that Raul said to be unwilling to give up the number 7 shirt at Madrid so plans appear to have been made for him to wear the number 9 jersey at the Spanish Club.

More rumours have been rife that the player, and the club, are sworn to silence over a secret agreement that would see him leave Old Trafford - a year after the original saga looked set to take him to Spain.

The story itself is true...what the ramifications are, however...well, leave that to yourself.

I thought he would wear those pink nike\'s to go along with the fact that he\'s one of the world\'s only gay pro footballers. Friggin\' faggot.<br /><br /><br />On a more serious note, watch United let the sorry little punk head off to Barcelona on a free, just to spit in the faces of Real. I\'d lol.

The Beckham deal told us that players who Madrid want who want to go to Madrid will go to Madrid. Interesting little story.
