Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes believes that his client is one of the greatest sportsmen of all time. This article explores the reasons why Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United and the buyout clause at Old Trafford. It also discusses the relationship between Ronaldo and manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The final section discusses Ronaldo’s relationship with Fergie. Throughout, we also touch upon the possibility of a future with Real Madrid.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes believes his client is the best sportsman ever
Real Madrid manager Jorge Mendes says that Cristiano Ronaldo has no equals in football history. The Portuguese striker has scored more goals than any other player in the history of the sport. His 115 goals for Portugal are the most in the history of men’s international football, breaking a record set by Pele fifteen years ago. He is also the most prolific goal scorer in the history of professional football, including the demanding Serie A and the European Championship.
According to Mendes, it would take PS1 billion to lure Ronaldo away from Real Madrid. However, if he could, he would see out his career at the Spanish club. The super agent is an advocate of Real Madrid, having helped his client negotiate some of the biggest transfers in European football. The Portuguese national has been a talisman for the club, and Mendes has long been regarded as his client’s agent.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is a super agent, and has been in the sport for 15 years. Mendes has claimed the Ballon d’Or five times and has already beaten Messi, who is the favourite to win the award. Other contenders include Juventus’ Jorginho, as well as Germany’s N’Golo Kante and France’s Robert Lewandowski. Although Ronaldo is not currently in the running for the Ballon d’Or, he feels he should.
Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United
If Ronaldo is leaving Manchester United then the club should not rush the decision. The Portugal international has been part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s squad since 2003, when he joined for £12 million from Porto. United have already struggled in the transfer market this summer and have failed to make any new signings before returning to training. With Ronaldo’s decision to leave, the club will face a battle to keep him.
According to reports, Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United after a single season. It is understood that the Portuguese star has been frustrated at the lack of competition and has been keen to leave after failing to make the Champions League. Last season, United finished sixth, with City taking the first spot. In light of this, Ronaldo has returned to Portugal with his family. However, he has not returned to Manchester United since then.
Although the standoff between the two sides has been drawn out for a few days, it is clear that the standoff is becoming more disruptive as the new season approaches. Although United had been linked with several top European clubs, Ronaldo has refused to report back for pre-season training. As a result, United have failed to compete for proven forwards. While Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus left the club, Manchester City and Arsenal could have won the race to sign Darwin Nunez. If Ronaldo were to leave, United could have beaten Bayern Munich for Robert Lewandowski and offered Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.
Ronaldo’s relationship with Fergie
Sir Alex Ferguson and Cristiano Ronaldo are known to have a close relationship. Ronaldo first joined Manchester United in 2003 and Fergie played a big role in developing him into a world-class player. The former England manager spared Ronaldo the hairdryer treatment and gave him confidence to become a world-class player. He is also credited with helping Ronaldo achieve his Euro 2016 success. Fergie and Ronaldo were close before Fergie’s retirement.
In fact, Fergie and Ronaldo’s relationship has grown stronger since the former Manchester United manager decided to resign in 2005. Ronaldo and Fergie had several meetings over tea during the season and discussed his future plans. This closeness has been acknowledged by Ronaldo, who recently revealed his desire to join Real Madrid. He was happy to sign with the club and rekindled his relationship with his former manager.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson has always been a father-son one. The Portuguese international sees Ferguson as the man who believed in him and helped him build a great career. Despite their rocky relationship, it is worth noting that Sir Alex Ferguson remained a close confidante of United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Nevertheless, the two have had some rocky moments, especially when the Portuguese international was reportedly on the verge of leaving the club.
Ronaldo’s buyout clause at Old Trafford
Manchester United’s ‘buyout clause’ is a major question mark for the club. If the Portuguese superstar wants out, then the club can’t afford to keep him. Manchester United are out of the Champions League and in no shape to compete with the best sides in England. Last season, United finished sixth – 35 points behind champions City. Ronaldo is now back in Portugal with his family. The new Premier League season kicks off in two weeks.
Although Manchester United were keen to hold onto Cristiano Ronaldo, they are standing firm in their refusal to sell him. The Portuguese striker has requested Old Trafford chiefs to sanction ‘acceptable’ bids. His desire to move would put Chelsea on high alert, who are in the market for a new striker to replace Romelu Lukaku. And with his buyout clause at Old Trafford, the club’s rivals could be tempted to cash in and move for their star.
Despite the lack of money, the Portuguese striker is unhappy at Manchester United. He is unhappy with the slow summer transfer window and his salary cut by 25%. Ronaldo also wants to play in the Champions League, something the club has not been able to give him this season. Manchester United are unable to afford the luxury of Champions League football. However, a sale of Ronaldo may not be a bad option for the club can still retain their star.
Ronaldo’s offer from Saudi Arabia
Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo have rejected the possibility of signing each other this summer, and now the former is set to reject the offer from the Saudi Arabian club. Earlier reports suggested that the Saudis had offered Ronaldo $30 million a year, and a two-year, $275 million wage package. The offer from Saudi Arabia, which was not confirmed by either club, is likely to be a test for Ronaldo, who would not be tempted by such a huge sum.
Manchester United are in Australia and Thailand for their pre-season tour, and after defeating Liverpool in their last game, they are heading to Australia for their second leg of the tour. On Friday, the Red Devils will take on Melbourne Victory, a team from the A League. If the Saudis manage to sign the forward, it will be an incredible deal for the club. The deal could end up saving United billions of dollars in transfer fees.
Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo has turned down a huge offer from the Saudis, claiming that the move is unsuitable. The club was willing to pay Ronaldo EUR270 million over two years, which would have made him the highest paid player in the world for the next two seasons. The transfer fee to Manchester United would have been around PS25m, which is considerably less than the amount of money United paid to sign Ronaldo.
Ronaldo’s buyout clause at Manchester United
The Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes, who brought Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao to Manchester United, has now confirmed that Ronaldo has a buyout clause at Manchester United. Previously, Mendes had said it would be impossible for Manchester United to woo Ronaldo away from Real Madrid. If he is serious about a move to England, he can negotiate a release clause for a minimum fee of EUR60m.
The contract between the two parties specifies that there is a 25 per cent salary cut if the players fail to qualify for the top club competition in Europe. United’s failure to reach the group stage in the Champions League has made Ronaldo unhappy. He will have to sign a new contract with the club before the clause is activated. It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds, but he has no immediate plans to leave the club.
In addition to United, Roma have reportedly opened talks with the player and hope to use the influence of manager Jose Mourinho to land the player. Sporting CP also hope to set up a reunion. Ronaldo spent his youth career at Sporting CP and joined Manchester United in 2003. He ended the season as the club’s top scorer. Despite the rumoured deal with United, it is unclear whether Ronaldo will opt to leave this summer.
