With 80 instructions for employees, the Queen “demands the first signed Cristiano Ronaldo Man United shirt.”
Cristiano Ronaldo’s fanbase seemed to know no bounds after his spectacular return to Manchester United was announced last week.
The Queen is said to have demanded 80 Manchester United shirts with Cristiano Ronaldo’s name on them, with the first one being personally autographed by the star. Last Thursday, the Portuguese completed a remarkable return to Old Trafford, capping off a sensational reunion with the club he left in 2009.
When it appeared that Ronaldo might be joining arch rivals Manchester City, the Red Devils sprung into action to snare him.
The Queen appears to be delighted with his decision to return to Old Trafford, since 80 jerseys have been ordered for her royal staff, according to Sport Innovation Society.
Furthermore, she is said to have insisted that the first shirt be autographed by the player himself.
In an extraordinary claim to fame, Ronaldo is said to be the only person in history to be approached by Queen Elizabeth II for a signature.
The announcement could be a telltale sign of her football loyalties, with prior stories claiming that West Ham was her favorite team.
Because of his frequent appearances in the stands at Villa Park, Prince William is undoubtedly the most well-known football fan in the royal family. It’s unclear where the United connection comes from.
It will, however, strengthen Ronaldo’s ego, since he can already bask in the adoration of United supporters who have witnessed their idol return to the club.
The move was made even sweeter for the Red Devils because it appeared that the 36-year-old was on the verge of joining the Etihad.
