Dutch midfielder Arjen Robben has told Real Madrid to do everything in their power to land Man Utd winger Cristiano Ronaldo this summer. The Madrid side are reportedly prepared to pay £182,000 a week to the Portuguese international.

Robben as insisted that the pair could play in the same team as each other.

"It's only good for me and good for the team," said the 24-year-old. "And it's not that if he plays, I can't play. We can play together."

"It's totally up to him - I think he is enjoying himself over there (at United).

"I don't think you can say football is at a higher level (in Spain) because we weren't in the last final of the Champions League like them.

"But, for me, I think Madrid is the biggest club in the world and I can understand if he wants to join them.

"It's a great league - I think you play a bit more football in Spain and I am enjoying myself there."
