Let's start this one rolling all over again. According to Spanish daily El Mundo, Manchester United and Real Madrid have come to a gentleman's agreement over the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo next summer.

The Spanish newspaper said that after Real's 2-0 loss at Barcelona Saturday, Real club director Pedro Trapote told "a confidant" that a deal was already in place, but claimed the clubs had pledged to keep a vow of silence after agreeing the deal.

"If you are asking me what we are going to do now then I would tell you that we have already signed the best player for the summer," Trapote is quoted as saying. "Are you talking about Cristiano?" asked the confidant. The reply: "The best of the best. It is Cristiano, there is no other. It is best to not say anything because there are some clauses that prevent us from announcing it now. For us it would be a good time, but we should not do that. But it is not bad, eh?"

Brace yourselves for enough denials on all sides to keep the papers filled through Christmas and the New Year.
