Bernabéu Bites, 09.15.2013: A Renewed Ronaldo

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Some of the sting from dropping points at Villareal last night subsides with Cristiano Ronaldo officially renewed and tied to Real Madrid until 2018.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo is our man. The Portuguese finally put pen to paper. Lucas covered the news as it broke here, if you haven't read it yet. A lot of nice, positive things were said by Ronaldo as he finally put a stamp on his intent to stay in Madrid. I'll defer to the lovely Rhiannon Jones for picking out the best line:

  • Diario As has run out another Ronaldo goals compilation for the momentous day. All 203 goals are available for your viewing pleasure here.
  • Nicholas Rigg and Sid Lowe both wrote up Gareth Bale's debut in white. Rigg recapped the match with special attention paid to Bale's individual performance. It's a glass-half-full type of read, so some of the doom-and-gloomers around here may need to take a look. Lowe recapped the Spanish press reactions to Bale's performance, all the way from the predictable, cheesy wordplay from Marca to the cynical foretelling of a clash between Ronaldo and Bale from the Catalan-centric Sport.
  • Real Madrid's 20-man list for Tuesday's Champions League clash at Galatasaray has been released. Arbeloa is included, so that's a sigh of relief. Long live the spartan traffic cone!
