Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United

Speculation has been rife about the future of Cristiano Ronaldo since he signed for Manchester United in 2014. His return to Old Trafford last August was a surprise to many, but it has now become a certainty as he has agreed a two-year deal. The Portuguese international had first been thought to be unsure of his place in the team under new manager Erik ten Hag, who has the task of rebuilding the squad. However, the saga has shifted and the Real Madrid star seemed to confirm his stay by saying he was ‘happy to be back’ at Manchester United.

Reports suggest that the Portugal international has been given special permission to delay his return to Manchester United. However, he has not yet informed the club of his decision to return. Although there have been rumours about his future, Manchester United have not taken any formal disciplinary action against the player. However, Nani hopes that the winger stays at Old Trafford. However, the Portuguese international has not been publicly involved in United’s recent pre-season tour of Australia.

Rumours of a potential transfer have surfaced that Ronaldo is keen to leave Manchester United this summer. The winger’s agent has met with the co-owner of Chelsea, Todd Boehly, but this is unlikely to act as a major impediment to a potential move. However, it’s unlikely that Ronaldo would be sold to a Premier League rival, and it remains to be seen whether the five-time Ballon d’Or will return to Manchester United this summer.

It is unknown whether Ronaldo will travel to Portugal to complete a pre-season tour. The Manchester United plane has left for Thailand, but there is no guarantee that he will join the squad for the match. In any case, it is unlikely that the transfer of Ronaldo will be completed before August. But if he does travel to England, it would be a major blow for the United’s tour.

Wissam Ben Yedder emerges as contender to replace him

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for Wissam Ben Yedder, a striker from Monaco. Manchester United have been involved in a tussle with Monaco over the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Portuguese forward reportedly not attending pre-season training. Despite recent reports to the contrary, the Portuguese striker is clearly not interested in playing in the Europa League and is instead interested in the Champions League.

Wissam Ben Yedder has been linked with a move to Manchester United, despite his erratic form for AS Monaco. In fact, Manchester United have been linked with almost every striker on the planet, and Ben Yedder’s impressive individual campaign at Sevilla could be the key to his future at Old Trafford. In terms of goals, he is on par with Kylian Mbappe, and he missed out on the Golden Boot by a single goal due to set-pieces.

A Sevilla alumnus, Ben Yedder has become Monaco’s top goalscorer since joining from Sevilla last season. The midfielder has scored 73 goals in 124 appearances for the club and is a potential candidate for the French team at the FIFA World Cup. He has also played in Spain, scoring 70 goals in 137 games for Sevilla.

Atletico Madrid’s interest in signing Ronaldo

Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo, but they will have to sell a player to fund the move. They are unable to offload Alvaro Morata and Saul, who contribute around EUR20 million to the club’s wage bill. Real Madrid, on the other hand, have a legacy and might be reluctant to sell Ronaldo. But at the same time, Simeone’s side need firepower on the front line.

Although Atletico Madrid have not made any offers to sign Ronaldo, they are watching the situation closely. It is understood that Manchester United are interested in extending Cristiano’s contract, allowing them to obtain a transfer fee next summer. Besides the money, Atletico Madrid would also have the luxury of signing a player with a proven record in the Champions League. It is possible that Atletico will be able to afford Ronaldo’s current wage, if the deal works out.

In the end, this deal will be a win-win situation for both sides. Simeone and Ronaldo are keen to sign the Real Madrid superstar, but the club’s financial constraints might not allow it. Ronaldo’s wages will have to be cut by 30 per cent to make room for his transfer. Unlike a transfer for a world class player like Durant, Atletico’s interest in signing Ronaldo could prove to be an effective band-aid solution for both parties.

Atletico Madrid’s interest in signing the Portuguese superstar is likely to continue despite the fact that Bayern Munich aren’t interested in making a move for him. They recently sold Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, which may give them a chance to compete for the Champions League. Bayern Munich, on the other hand, will likely be interested in loaning Ronaldo for next season. However, despite the interest in Ronaldo, the Red Devils will have to deal with a difficult situation as the transfer fee would be paid by the club next summer.

Real Madrid have been trying to avoid the rumors about Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer. Simeone is keen on the idea and he’s seen arriving at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground in the same vehicle as his agent Jorge Mendes. Real Madrid’s desire to keep Ronaldo is understandable. Ronaldo has plenty of options this summer, but they’ll have to be careful not to lose him.

Arsenal, Valencia and Newcastle are interested in signing Ronaldo

According to reports, Juventus and Real Betis are keen on signing Ronaldo. Meanwhile, Valencia are interested in signing Arthur Melo, a midfielder who has been at the club since 2011. However, Juventus boss Max Allegri has not expressed a desire to sell him. Despite this, it is still believed that the midfielder may leave. Arsenal, Valencia and Newcastle are monitoring the situation and may be able to offer him a loan deal instead.

Man Utd have been linked with Dembele. But Chelsea and Arsenal are also interested in signing the midfielder. However, they cannot match their rivals’ offer. But if Man Utd bid high enough, Chelsea can sell players that don’t suit their style. And if Real Madrid aren’t interested, Newcastle and Valencia are also interested in signing the Portuguese international. If Ronaldo does sign a contract, they will be able to make a record-breaking transfer in the process.

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Real Madrid have not yet given up on signing Ronaldo. In fact, the club’s chief executive officer, Todd Boehly, has already held discussions with the player’s agent Jorge Mendes. In the past, the super-agent has met with Ronaldo’s representatives, including the Real Madrid board. As a result, Madrid have put Antoine Griezmann on the market, which has further lowered the odds of signing Ronaldo.

It has also been reported that Juventus have held discussions with Newcastle and Valencia over the transfer of the Portuguese superstar. Ronaldo has a year left on his contract at Manchester United. If United sell him to Chelsea, he could recoup the money they paid for him, strengthening their position as Champions League winners. However, United have been reluctant to sell the player, according to several media outlets. As a result, he will probably end up in the MLS one day.

In addition to signing Ronaldo, Manchester United are also looking to sign a central midfielder and a winger. A defender is also a top priority, with the club still looking for a dependable centre-back. It seems that Arsenal will have enough financial leverage to make further signings. Despite this, the club may also consider signing a central defender to bolster its defence.
