Cristiano finds Atlético fans’ ‘CR7 not welcome’ banner hilarious
The Portuguese star reacted on Instagram to the banner that a sector of Atleti fans displayed in El Burgo de Osma.
Cristiano Ronaldo continues to be the main talking point in the daily news concerning Atlético Madrid. The Portuguese star wants to find a new club and Atleti is, at this time, his best bet.

Sir Alex Ferguson has intervened and United insist Ronaldo is not for sale.”
The Portuguese forward took no prisoners in his response: “It’s impossible for them not to talk about me for one day, otherwise the press doesn’t make money. They know that if they don’t lie they can’t attract people’s attention. Keep going, maybe one day they get a news story right”. Rumors continue to spread like wildfire and the future of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner remains unknown...
