Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has backed FIFA president Sepp Blatter´s condemnation of "modern slavery" in the modern game.

When asked about Ronaldo´s long-mooted prospective transfer to Real Madrid, Blatter yesterday suggested that there was a trend towards treating players like slaves in the transfer process.

"I agree with the comments of the president of FIFA. What he said is right," Ronaldo, who is currently recovering from ankle surgery after taking part for Portugal in Euro 2008, told Portuguese channel TVI.
