Manchester City's new owner boasts he'll buy United ace Cristiano Ronaldo for £120m as Arabs bid to conquer the world

New Manchester City owner Dr Sulaiman Al-Fahim intends to follow up his shock capture of Robinho by swooping for World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo.

Al-Fahim smashed the British transfer fee record after agreeing a last-gasp £32.5million fee with Real Madrid for the Brazilian moments before midnight yesterday.

And now the spokesman for The Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG) says he'll splash a staggering £120m on Ronaldo.

On the list: Manchester United Cristiano Ronaldo is just one of Sulaiman's targets.

“Ronaldo has said he wants to play for the biggest club in the world, so we will see in January if he is serious.," Al-Fahim said.

"Real Madrid were estimating his value at $160m but for a player like that, to actually get him, will cost a lot more, I would think $240m.

"But why not? We are going to be the biggest club in the world, bigger than both Real Madrid and Manchester United.”

Al Fahim has also revealed other names on his shopping list – Liverpool’s Fernando Torres and Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas are also seen as potential targets.
