Bringronaldohome.org, a site launched last week, has been set up with the eponymous goal to bring Cristiano Ronaldo ‘home’ (even though technically that’s Madeira, but let’s not split hairs).
In a populous bid to return the ‘power’ to the fans, the campaign aims to raise the €1 billion required to trigger Ronaldo’s release clause from Real Madrid, by imploring Man United fans from around the world to pledge £10 as a deposit.
The movement claims this £10 deposit will only be taken if the campaign succeeds, i.e. if they manage to bring Ronaldo home.
Intriguingly though, the movement has been accused of being a scam; that should the bid fail the people behind it stand to pocket the leftover cash.
As it stands, 3813 fans have donated £1o each, meaning £38,130 has been raised so far.
