Also, don’t miss out on the latest news from Portugal!
Sporting Lisbon manager breaks silence on Cristiano Ronaldo transfer rumours
A new report suggests that Sporting Lisbon are in talks to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. After ending his season in top goalscoring position for Manchester United, the Portugal international may be on his way out this summer. Reports have surfaced that Sporting are considering signing the Portuguese superstar on a loan deal. Sporting manager Miguel Britos has refused to comment on the reports on social media.
Ten Hag, who is currently in Thailand with Manchester United, has reportedly told reporters that Ronaldo will not be leaving the club this summer. The Portuguese club will continue to keep the player in Lisbon for next season. The Portuguese champions will face Liverpool in Thailand on July 12 before the start of the season. According to Ten Hag, “Cristiano is not for sale,” but that he is unable to play due to personal reasons.
The Portuguese winger has reportedly spoken to his agent about a possible move, and the club is keen to sign him. Although he is under contract until the 2022/23 season, he is expected to leave on a free transfer next summer. Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have been tipped as possible destinations. However, Chelsea have withdrawn their interest, reportedly after discussions with the club’s new owner Todd Boehly. Thomas Tuchel, on the other hand, is more hesitant to sign Ronaldo.
After the summer transfer window, the English clubs have distanced themselves from the alleged deal. Other clubs including Manchester United and Chelsea were said to be in advanced talks to sign the Portuguese player. As for Sporting’s interest, it is worth noting that Amorim has been extremely coy about the rumours, admitting he was the one who initially made the move.
Manchester United still interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo
With the transfer market a notoriously unpredictable place, is Manchester United still interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldi? It seems that United have been in talks with Atletico Madrid regarding the former Real Madrid forward’s availability, but Atletico have been steadfast in their position that the Portuguese is not for sale. If the move does take place, the deal will be a major coup for Manchester United.
The deal would involve a transfer fee of around £100 million and Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United. The move would make the Brazilian superstar’s transfer history even more spectacular, but Manchester United are unlikely to regain their former talisman in such a short period. Juventus have also recently signed German midfielder Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. Although Ronaldo isn’t a surefire sale candidate, it is clear that the Portuguese international would prefer to play for a European club, and a Champions League contender. Sadly, United won’t be in the Champions League next season, and as a result, Mendes has struggled to find a suitable destination for him.
The new Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has already said that he is still interested in signing the Portuguese striker. However, he was unable to attend a meeting with the club’s football board on July 26. Meanwhile, Ronaldo is yet to resume full training for the first team. However, the club will be starting their pre-season tour in Thailand on Friday. It is understood that United have contacted the representatives of Ronaldo’s former club, Napoli. The club also said that they will keep in touch with the player to find a new club for him.
With the new owners of Manchester United, the transfer of Ronaldo could be a way for them to cash in on the former PSG star. However, it is unclear whether the club will find a buyer for the former PSG striker, who is reportedly keen to leave the club. And, despite the uncertainty, the Manchester club’s new boss has already made it clear that it will rely heavily on the Portuguese international next season.
Atletico Madrid want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo for Champions League football
According to reports, Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, provided Manchester United agree to let him leave on a free transfer. The Portuguese forward has been keen to leave Manchester United after failing to qualify for the Champions League last season. However, Manchester United have not been keen on selling the player, and they have distanced themselves from the transfer rumours. Meanwhile, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have all been linked with a move for the Portuguese star. But Atletico Madrid are monitoring Ronaldo’s situation and could make the move if they want to win the Champions League.
However, fans of Atleti are not so keen on Ronaldo’s potential transfer. Ronaldo spent nine years with Real Madrid before leaving in 2018 and has accumulated over 400 goals for the club. He also helped the club win four Champions League titles. However, Atleti fans have also been unhappy with the potential signing, with some fans even threatening to cancel their Atleti membership if he signs for their club.
While Real Madrid have ruled out any move for Ronaldo, Atletico have placed Antoine Griezmann on the market. Diego Simeone has also been in contact with the Portuguese forward and will be impressed with his desire to play in the Champions League. Whether Atletico can lure Ronaldo away from Real Madrid will depend on their ability to raise EUR40m. If they are successful, they could be the only side in the Champions League to attract Ronaldo.
After the season-long absences of Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo could be on his way out. Although he may not move to Atletico, his agent and manager Jorge Mendes have both expressed interest in signing Ronaldo. The deal would also allow Atletico to compete in the Champions League next season and draw level with Paco Gento for the most European Cups won.
Manchester United set to talk to Cristiano Ronaldo about move to Atletico Madrid
It has been rumored that Manchester United are set to discuss a potential move to Atletico Madrid with the Portuguese star, despite the club’s interest in him. The Portuguese is not yet committed to a move to Atleti, but his inner circle wants him to stay at Old Trafford, where he has been a key figure for the past two seasons. Although he is Madrid’s all-time top scorer, Ronaldo understands that a move to the Metropolitano would not be popular with many Atletico supporters, and his desire to return to Old Trafford is a key factor.
The Portuguese international missed the start of pre-season and the United’s tours in Australia and Thailand, and has been training on his own. He arrived at the Carrington training facility today with his agent Jorge Mendes. He is expected to meet United chiefs on Tuesday, but it’s not yet clear if he will be part of that conversation. The transfer window is almost over, so the club will have to look elsewhere to land a top striker.
Atletico have expressed interest in signing Cristiano Ronaldo, but Atletico will have to offload Antoine Griezmann in order to bring the Portugal international to Spain. If United are to secure Ronaldo, they will have to raise EUR40 million in player sales and sell a player. Atletico finished third in La Liga last season, so a move to Atletico would give them the luxury of a European Champions League spot.
The Portuguese star is keen to leave Manchester in the summer, but Manchester United have not yet confirmed a deal with any club. Diego Simeone has convinced Atletico to pursue Ronaldo’s transfer, and it has been reported that he has been contacted by the Spanish club. However, United have rejected any move to Atletico despite the club’s insistence that they are not for sale.
Manchester United’s interest in signing Cristiano Ronaldo sparks outrage
Manchester United have officially ruled out the prospect of selling Cristiano Ronaldo. Recent reports have linked the winger with a move to Chelsea, the club owned by Todd Boehly. But the Red Devils will not let the Portuguese international leave Old Trafford in the summer. That said, it is still possible that the Portuguese will leave United in the summer. But the club is not in any rush to make a deal.
There are concerns over the impact of signing Ronaldo, especially since his arrival in Manchester would help boost the club’s commercial revenues. Ronaldo’s huge fan base is already a benefit to Manchester United, which already earns significant value from a lucrative shirt deal with Adidas. The new player would also boost the club’s broader business operations, giving the club the chance to make an extra PS30m in commercial deals over the next two years.
Although he is expected to continue playing at the top level of football, he is keen on spending his remaining prime years challenging for major prizes. Despite United’s interest in signing the Portuguese, their rivals have been pursuing younger forwards instead. Manchester City, for example, have been linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, while Liverpool have reportedly paid up to $100 million for Darwin Nunez.
In spite of the outrage, the Portuguese is expected to return to the club on Monday and could meet new manager Erik ten Hag. However, the Portugal international has been absent for the first three weeks of pre-season due to a family matter. It’s rumoured that Ronaldo has told the club that he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer. Meanwhile, United have been in talks with Bayern Munich and Chelsea over a possible move.
