As the rumours of a Real Madrid deal continue to make the rounds, Atletico supporters have decided to join the fight. A hashtag, #ContraCR7, has been created to protest the signing. The hashtag has trended on social media in Spain over the weekend. Since Ronaldo has played against Atletico Madrid more than any other team, Atletico have become upset. The Portuguese player has won 17 of his 37 matches against Atletico.
Atletico Madrid fans threaten to withdraw club memberships if Cristiano Ronaldo is signed
It’s rumoured that Cristiano Ronaldo is on his way to Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window. The Portuguese forward has been linked with a move to the Wanda Metropolitano, but the club’s fans are against it, creating a hashtag on social media titled ‘ContraCR7.’ The fans have decided that Cristiano can’t wear an Atletico shirt and want nothing to do with it.
Many Atletico fans have been critical of the Portuguese superstar since he joined Manchester United 12 months ago. He has been linked with a move to the La Liga club, citing his dissatisfaction with the club’s lack of transfer activity and doubts over the team’s ability to win a title. Despite his recent success with Atleti, Ronaldo has been absent from the club’s pre-season tour. A number of clubs, including Bayern Munich and Chelsea, have expressed an interest in signing the Brazilian forward.
Following the news that Real Madrid had been interested in signing Ronaldo, Atletico Madrid were linked with a potential move for Ronaldo. However, Diego Simeone has reportedly been willing to sell Antoine Griezmann to make space for the Portuguese international. The fans of Atletico Madrid are not pleased with the move to Real Madrid and are creating a social media hashtag called ‘ContraCR7’ to protest the move.
Despite the hype surrounding the signing of the Portuguese international, the Atletico supporters are less enthusiastic than their Real Madrid counterparts. After nine years with the club, the Portuguese player has accumulated a total of 172 goals in 192 appearances. His record at Real Madrid is second only to his record at Barcelona. The Portuguese forward has won four Champions League titles and was named all-time leading goalscorer. However, he is not keen on joining a club where he isn’t wanted.
Atletico Madrid have never been big fans of the Portuguese star, but their record against him is exceptional. He has scored 22 goals and provided nine assists in 31 games against Atletico, including their 2014 Champions League final defeat. Atletico also knocked Manchester United out of the Champions League in the round of 16 last season. And the fans’ hashtag against Ronaldo’s signing was not just confined to social media.
Atletico Madrid fans are outraged by rumours of a move for Ronaldo
The rumours that Atletico Madrid are planning a move for Cristiano Ronaldo have been met with a united backlash from the Spanish club’s fans. The Portuguese star is keen to leave Manchester United this summer after failing to qualify for the Champions League last season. He has been frustrated with the lack of recruitment in the transfer window and is looking for a new challenge. Manchester United are unable to find a replacement for the Portuguese, so they have turned to the transfer market for a new striker.
While Manchester City have been interested in signing Ronaldo in the past, Atletico fans are not. They have taken to Twitter to express their disapproval and use the hashtag #ContraCR7 to make it clear that they will not accept Ronaldo at the Wanda Metropolitano. However, if this deal does happen, the club could be facing a major battle with Real Madrid’s fans.
Reports of an Atletico Madrid move for Ronaldo have divided the fans. However, the club have recently made an offer for Griezmann to Paris Saint-Germain. The French club declined the deal and the player has since returned to Atletico on loan until 2023. The deal requires Atletico to pay Paris Saint-Germain EUR40m by the end of June.
Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have long had a rivalry and a revolving door. The former Real Madrid striker has scored 25 goals in 27 games against Atleti, including the infamous hat-trick against Atletico. In the last match, Cristiano scored a penalty and a header to eliminate Manchester United. Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from Atletico would not only hurt the club’s reputation but the club’s finances.
Ronaldo has scored 25 goals against Atletico Madrid
Diego Simeone has labelled Cristiano Ronaldo the world’s best player. In addition to that, Simeone also has warned his Atletico Madrid squad that they must never underestimate the Portuguese talisman. As it happens, Simeone has a vested interest in ensuring that Atletico Madrid do not underestimate Cristiano Ronaldo, whose record against Atletico Madrid is exceptional.
In 36 career games against Atletico Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has netted 25 goals. Of these, four of them have been hat-tricks. The Portuguese superstar also has four hat-tricks against the Spanish club. In fact, he has only conceded four goals against Atletico in the UEFA Champions League, while Atletico have won five of their last seven meetings.
During his time with Real Madrid, Ronaldo has starred in 16 matches against Atletico. In addition to La Liga, he has played against Atletico ten times in the Champions League. He also has one goal against the Spanish club in the Copa del Rey. This is a record he cannot afford to miss, even if he is not at his best.
After a disappointing start to his Manchester United career, Ronaldo is raring to get some revenge. Last month, he was held to a goalless draw against Atletico Madrid in the first leg. After the stalemate, he was rewarded for his efforts when he scored the winner in a 2-1 win against Atletico in Turin. This was Cristiano’s only Champions League quarter-final appearance in the competition since 2014.
After nine years with Real Madrid, the Portuguese star is rumoured to return to Atletico Madrid. While Manchester United are not able to pay the transfer fee, it’s thought the player’s representatives met Diego Simeone to discuss a potential move to Atletico. If he is convinced, he might return to Spain and start winning titles for Atletico. That is why he is expected to sign a new contract with the Spanish giants.
Real Madrid have won all seven of Ronaldo’s appearances against Atletico Madrid during the Copa del Rey. He has not provided an assist in any of the seven matches he played against Atletico. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner believes that Messi might overtake him in the Champions League if he doesn’t play for his new team next season. Furthermore, Ronaldo’s girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, is keen to move back to Madrid.
Ronaldo’s agent stirs passion to prompt Real Madrid to make a move for him
Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent is stirring the fire to convince Real Madrid to make a move for his client. Ronaldo has only recently returned to Manchester United following a season in Italy. However, he has already posted on social media about his physical condition. This is a logical next step, given the lack of interest from Real Madrid in his transfer.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent has reportedly met Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly to stir the rumours about a potential move. While United are understood to be not interested in selling him this summer, the agent has been in contact with other clubs that are keen to sign the Portuguese. Chelsea and Bayern Munich have also been kept informed of the situation. Although PSG are not currently interested in signing Ronaldo, they have been linked with a move for him.
While the Real Madrid fans are understandably keen to sign Ronaldo, it is unlikely that the club can afford to pay the wages he demands. Even if he were to accept a 30% wage cut, he would still earn PS300,000 a week. The move will likely cause problems with the fans of both teams. It is also highly unlikely to satisfy Ronaldo’s desire to play in the Champions League.
Manchester United are not the only club in the running for Ronaldo. Chelsea recently loaned Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan, while Bayern are likely to lose no.9 Robert Lewandowski is likely to join Barcelona. Napoli, meanwhile, are keen to sign the Portuguese despite the fact that he will be in a better position to challenge for domestic glory.
Juventus were hoping that Ronaldo would help them win the UEFA Champions League, but that failed to happen this season. They have lost three coaches in three seasons and are not even close to the semifinals. The Round of 16 elimination by Porto was particularly tough on Ronaldo, according to reports. This is one reason why Juventus didn’t spend $120 million to sign Ronaldo in 2018.
