After months of speculation, it appears that Manchester United is finally going to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid for a world-record Â£80-million fee. Translated for non-soccer fans: England's most famous team is about to sell its best player to Spain's most famous team for a huge fucking sum of money. Got it?
While the Portuguese midfielder is undeniably one of the world's best footballers, he's also one of sport's most, uh, flamboyant dressers. Now we're not so immature as to question homie's off-field predilections (though hooking up with Paris is always a bad look), but it must be said: As far as style goes, Cristiano is totally in a league of his own. If you thought Beckham was a vain prissy boy, then you ain't seen nothing yet. So, to celebrate his move to Madrid, we're taking a quick look back at Cristiano Ronaldo's craziest outfits...
