Despite his interest in leaving Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has remained coy about his future. The Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid reportedly have rejected a move for Ronaldo, and there have also been reports of a Saudi Arabian interest. However, United have been tight-lipped about any talks with Ronaldo. In the meantime, the Portuguese international is training in Lisbon and is not yet fully fit for a full training session.
Ronaldo’s relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson
One of the many fascinating stories surrounding the Manchester United manager is Ronaldo’s relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson. Ferguson was a pivotal figure in the development of Ronaldo, helping him become one of the most admired footballers of all time. His influence can be seen in his recent decision to return to United after a 12-year absence. This relationship is likely to endure. Read on to discover what makes Sir Alex such a special man and how he helped Ronaldo’s career.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson has always been one of father and son. Sir Alex Ferguson believes in him, helped him develop his career, and sees him as the fruit of his labour. Although the relationship between the two has been strained at times, Cristiano Ronaldo has never hesitated to acknowledge his admiration for the United manager. During an interview with the club’s official website, the two spoke candidly about their relationship and the growth of their mutual admiration for one another.
While Manchester United have struggled in recent months, the Portuguese striker has reportedly held talks with the club’s hierarchy. After all, Sir Alex Ferguson first signed Ronaldo at United in 2003 and convinced him to sign with the club a year ago. Despite the uncertainty around his future, it is clear that the manager is determined to keep Ronaldo at Old Trafford. However, the Portuguese forward will have to contend with the fact that the club have not given him a clear answer as to why Ronaldo is not playing for them this season.
Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that Sir Alex was a big part of his motivation to sign for Manchester United in the first place. The former Manchester United manager has remained close to the club and is a trusted adviser to the current manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Despite the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson was a big influence in his early career, the Portuguese legend is ready to return to the club he played his first professional matches at.
Ronaldo’s desire to leave Manchester United
A rumour has emerged that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United this summer, with just one season left on his contract. The Portuguese star is keen to prove his worth and compete for more honours before he hangs up his boots. However, reports suggest that Manchester United have no plans to sell him, despite the fact that he has scored 24 goals in the last season. The reports state that a loan move to Atletico Madrid is being discussed, but if that doesn’t materialise, Ronaldo could be on his way to leaving Manchester United for good.
Jose Mourinho has said he wants to build a strong squad capable of competing in both the Champions League and the top flight in England. But the Portuguese has also admitted that he wants to leave Manchester United in order to focus on his family and play in the Champions League. Several sources at the club have claimed that Ronaldo is not fully committed to the club and that he is just waiting for the right time to force a move. Despite these claims, he has remained loyal to the club despite the rumours, but there are tensions within the squad.
Although Ronaldo is a natural choice for Manchester United, the club is not in the best possible position to sign him. The club’s lack of ambitions and finances has prevented them from signing any of the top transfer targets in the past. Manchester City, in particular, have strengthened their squad this summer. The former Real Madrid winger would like to play for a team in the Champions League after being so successful with them.
Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have turned down a move for him
After a series of rumours surfaced recently, Real and Atletico Madrid have reportedly turned down a move for Ronaldo. However, Atletico fans are not convinced that Ronaldo is ready to leave Manchester United. With the possibility of a move for Ronaldo looming over them, they have started a Twitter campaign dubbed “ContraCR7.”
Real Madrid and Atletico have both been linked with the Portuguese international. However, both clubs have said that they will need to raise more than EUR40million in player sales to complete a deal. According to reports, Ronaldo will be re-signing with Manchester United. Manchester United have already made it clear that they want him back. It is not clear whether the Portuguese international will sign a new contract with the club or stay at United for another season.
Atletico Madrid fans have joined the call for Ronaldo to leave United. Ronaldo is unhappy at Manchester United and is keen to move to another club in the Champions League. The Portuguese has been in the news recently because of the lack of recruitment during the transfer window and has failed to train with the club during pre-season tours. The club’s interest in Ronaldo has led to several rumours about his future.
Despite this, it is not surprising that Manchester United have shown interest in signing Ronaldo. After all, the club are not able to afford the transfer. Real Madrid need more than 40million euros in sales to bring Ronaldo to the club. Therefore, the transfer would not be completed unless Manchester United sold more than 40million Euros. So, both clubs have their reasons for stalling a potential move for Ronaldo.
Saudi Arabia’s interest in signing Ronaldo
The latest speculation surrounding the possibility of a Ronaldo transfer has focused on a Saudi Arabian club, but the truth is that neither side has confirmed the move. Although a move to Saudi Arabia would be extremely lucrative for both parties, there has not been a single report claiming that the Kingdom is interested in signing the Real Madrid superstar. However, the possibility of a Ronaldo move to Saudi Arabia is certainly worth investigating.
While Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich have been linked with a move for Ronaldo, these clubs have all ruled out the move. The Premier League has also ruled out the possibility of a Ronaldo switch. Among other teams that have been linked with a move for the Portuguese ace are Atletico Madrid, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain. Despite their interest, both Manchester United and Bayern Munich have stated publicly that they are not interested in signing Ronaldo.
According to reports, an unnamed Saudi Arabia club has made an offer for Ronaldo worth PS230 million over two years. That is the equivalent of PS2.24m a week. The club also plans to pay a PS20m fee to Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes. Saudi Arabia is a great place for Ronaldo to continue his career. It would be a great advertisement for the league, which would also attract new fans.
While Chelsea have no immediate plans to sign the Real Madrid star, they have been in talks with the Portuguese international’s agent Jorge Mendes. But it is unclear if Man United will sell their star striker. After signing Sterling, they have put their focus on defensive signings. After all, they can’t afford to replace Ronaldo with an unfamiliar player. The Portuguese national team is keen to retain their best player and would prefer to keep him for the next season.
Chelsea’s interest in signing Ronaldo
There are reports that Chelsea are weighing up a move for Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese international has been linked with a move away from the Old Trafford club in recent weeks. However, it seems that Chelsea aren’t keen on the possibility of signing Ronaldo. The club’s owner, Todd Boehly, recently met with the player’s agent Jorge Mendes to discuss a possible move. Despite his immense admiration for the Portuguese international, Boehly has resisted the temptation.
Although it is believed that Ronaldo would have been willing to join a club in the Premier League, there are rumours that the player wants to move on. Earlier this month, Manchester City signed Raheem Sterling, but the player has not yet joined Chelsea’s pre-season camp. However, Sterling is believed to be interested in a move to Chelsea and could feature in their opening game against Club America.
If the Chelsea manager wanted to sign Ronaldo, he would have been willing to swap players for cash. While the club did offer Juve Timo Werner in exchange for De Ligt, Chelsea may be willing to make a similar move. The striker’s desire to leave Manchester United could have been purely commercial in nature. However, Tuchel’s desire to sign Ronaldo isn’t based on playing qualities. The Spanish international has clearly communicated his desire to move to a top club and could have been a tempting option.
With United in crisis mode, Cristiano Ronaldo’s future appears to be at risk. Ronaldo is reportedly unhappy at the United camp and is unlikely to leave the club during the current transfer window. Manchester United are also reluctant to sell the Portugal international because they fear he could stay at the club. Meanwhile, Chelsea have not publicly indicated their interest in signing the Portuguese international. However, it is still possible that Chelsea will make a move for Ronaldo.
