First off, Ronaldo will win the world player of the year award. I really don't see anyone beating him out on this one this year. Even if Torres were to be the highest goal scorer in the tournament, it would have to be something absolutely amazing to propel him to win the WPOTY award.
Second, I agree with 2Brown, If I were a die hard Man-U fan, I would not be too happy. Now I'm not a Ronaldo hater by any means, he's actually my second favorite player behind David Villa ( < GOD
), but I really think all this transfer sh*t is a bitch move. If Cristiano wanted to stay, he should have made it clear before the tournament started and got on with it, instead of letting this transfer talk linger in the back of his head the whole time with the media on his back. It's all about the money, and even if it was 'his dream' to play at the Bernabeu, I really think he is betraying the group of people that made him what he is today.
Third, this talk about Cristiano's captaining abilities and etc... Portugal really don't have anyone else to hand the arm band once Nuno Gomes is taken off. Deco ehh ... maybe Carvalho, but even that is a stretch. Ronaldo has matured alot since the World Cup (although in my opinion not close to enough). He's actually passing the ball more often and trying to create opportunities for his teammates. Still again with the transfer talk decisions and the pointing fingers after the set piece, he has ways to go.
