Atletico Madrid fans launch online protest against signing Man Utd striker Ronaldo

Atletico Madrid fans are protesting against claims of a move for Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo is being linked with a loan move to Atletico as he seek to leave Old Trafford.

The speculation has upset Atleti fans who have united behind the hashtag #ContraCR7 [AgainstCR7] on Twitter to voice their displeasure .

“If this one comes to my Atleti, I will cancel my two subscriptions…. We are not an asylum to collect scum,” one supporter tweeted. “This is not just about Atletico fans, every club’s fans should reject Ronaldo,” another added.

“A clown who represents everything that is not Atleti. It would destroy the locker room, the fans and everything it touches. It is not even sustained sportingly, [he’s] in clear decline,” one Atleti supporter wrote. “At the Club we would never put the results of the brand, image or economic dividends before the sports or social ones,” another agreed.
