If you’ve been following the Ronaldo story on social media, you’ve likely been wondering how his transfer to Manchester United went. After all, he’s already signed a monster contract. But the question is: did Manchester United make the right choice in signing the Portuguese striker? The move to Manchester was largely based on the footballer’s popularity among the Manchester United fan base and his dalliance with City. But did Manchester United actually look at the long-term future of the player and the club before making the decision?
Ronaldo’s transfer to Manchester United
Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly ready to quit Manchester United and join Chelsea next season if the Reds do not make the Champions League. If that happens, Manchester United will allow Ronaldo to leave Old Trafford. The Portuguese striker returned to Manchester United in the summer after 11 years with Real Madrid to prevent him from joining their arch-rivals Manchester City. Many believed that Ronaldo’s arrival would transform United into a serious contender in the Premier League and Champions League. But after a difficult season at Manchester City, many fans thought he was going to quit.
The move was widely expected by fans and supporters alike. Several fans had argued that Ronaldo’s transfer to Manchester United was a good deal for both sides. However, when the club failed to sign other players – including Michael Carrick and Antonio Valencia – after the 2012-13 season, Ferguson was more than happy to press City’s executive vice-chair Ed Woodward to make a move for the Brazilian. The deal was finally done on Wednesday night.
Ronaldo is still vital to United’s success, but it is unlikely that the club will let him leave until the end of his contract. While United expect Ronaldo to stay until 2022, the Spanish star has expressed doubts about his future at the club. The club’s business and the club’s relegation from the Champions League could affect his long-term future. But if United can make the Champions League next season, the Portuguese superstar will most certainly stay at Old Trafford.
Whether a move to United will happen depends on the player’s attitude and his relationship with the club. If he leaves, it will only be for the better. In the meantime, United fans will be hoping that the transfer of Ronaldo to United does not lead to a major fallout for the club. The United fans can only hope that this issue is resolved soon. And Ronaldo will have to decide if he is willing to spend another season with United to get back into the Champions League.
Although the rumors of a transfer to United were initially negative, the news has largely been positive. United are hoping to sign Cristiano Ronaldo for a new contract and get rid of the old manager. The Portuguese reportedly wanted to retire to Manchester after leaving Juventus, but Sir Alex Ferguson’s offer made him reconsider. But in the end, the club will not get rid of him. It will be up to him to make the right decision for himself and his family.
Ronaldo’s social media presence
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United transfer has generated massive social media activity. Possibly the shock factor contributed to the huge number of tweets and posts about the transfer. But the importance of the world star’s social media presence will only increase. Here are some of the reasons why the transfer of the Portuguese star to Manchester United has received such a high level of interest. 1. It’s the ‘C’ factor
When Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in August 2021, his social media presence changed radically. Instead of being dedicated to the club’s achievements, the accounts became a tribute to the player. Since June 25, 2022, Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t been featured in any posts, although his profile has increased by over 6 billion fans. This massive following has helped him command high rates from sponsors.
Other reasons for the change of pace in Ronaldo’s social media presence after his Man United transfer are unclear. Some believe the Portuguese flop’s timing is “awful.” It was reported that Ronaldo knew United wouldn’t be in the Champions League by April, but waited until July to inform the club. However, some wonder whether the rumours are a result of the Chelsea interest in the Portuguese superstar. The timing also raises questions about whether Ronaldo’s transfer was influenced by the fact that he is bound by a salary reduction clause if United fail to reach the Champions League.
The football industry is incredibly worried about this changing market. It appears that the relationship between football and young people is deteriorating. According to one recent survey, 40% of people aged 16 to 24 had no interest in football. This has caused clubs to seek new ways to engage their fans. Anything that extends their reach to younger age groups is of great interest to club owners. Cristiano Ronaldo’s social media presence has created a buzz online and is a great example of this.
While Manchester United’s Instagram account usually gains 30,000 followers per day, Ronaldo’s arrival boosted the number of followers to 800,000 within the hour of his Manchester United transfer. The Brazilian’s total social media presence now exceeds Manchester United’s by four times. Currently, he has the highest Twitter following of any athlete in the world. Furthermore, he has an estimated social media presence of nearly 600 million people.
Ronaldo’s individual abilities
During his time at Real Madrid, Ronaldo leaned heavily on his bag of tricks, but he has also honed his individual skills at Manchester United. He has scored 12 goals in 21 appearances in the Premier League and has provided crucial contributions in the Champions League. Rangnick, who has a philosophical outlook, would have to agree with him, and he would admit that United didn’t play particularly well but got away with it thanks to a combination of errors by the opposition and his own individual brilliance.
After the transfer to United, there were rumors that Ronaldo would be signed by Sir Alex Ferguson. In fact, the club’s chairman, Ed Woodward, reportedly told his players that he was available to be signed. At the time, he had a deal with Sporting until the end of the season. This would enable him to develop and then move to Manchester the following season. However, when he was with Portugal’s under-21 team in the 2003 Toulon Tournament, he was one of the few players who was considered a prime candidate for the Manchester United position. As a result, the Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, was reportedly approached by several players on the flight back from Portugal.
A number of reports also claim that the club will release Ronaldo in the summer. While it’s not known if the deal is finalized, the fact that he has been left out of the squad against Empoli suggests that United may be in a hurry to sell. But the club can’t afford to lose Ronaldo without a replacement of top quality. The club’s top target was Nunez, but they did not fancy the price tag. While he won’t be playing for United for a couple of months, he is an asset to the club.
Ronaldo’s first spell at Manchester United saw him develop from a raw young winger in 2003 to the best player on earth. With the experience of a World Cup final in his hands, he settled into life in England and has become a popular member of the squad. The Portuguese star wanted to stay and play another season at Old Trafford. According to a source close to the Ronaldo camp, he wanted to stay and play a second season.
Manchester United’s reaction to Ronaldo’s transfer
Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United has created a stir on the internet. The Portuguese superstar spent six seasons with the club, winning eight major trophies, and also winning the Ballon d’Or as the world’s best player in 2008. He also broke almost every goal scoring record while playing for Manchester United. In fact, he scored 118 goals during his time at the club, and won the Premier League Golden Boot in the 2007-08 season. His return to Old Trafford also saw Manchester United win their last Champions League title.
A five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo rarely gets it wrong. And with his winning mentality, he remains an invaluable addition to the Manchester United dressing room. Ultimately, United fans are better off with him in the team than without him. But it’s also important to note that the Portuguese is not likely to sign a new contract with Bayern Munich. So, how will Manchester United react to the transfer of Ronaldo?
One of the first reactions that many Manchester fans have had to the news of Ronaldo’s transfer is shock. Jadon Sancho has admitted that he is disappointed to have lost Cristiano Ronaldo. He wants his compensation in biscuit form! Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes hinted that he played a role in convincing the Portuguese superstar to join Manchester United. The reaction of Manchester United fans to Ronaldo’s transfer has been widespread across the sporting world and beyond.
As for the rest of the Manchester players, the Portuguese international is very excited to be joining the club. The club’s reaction to Ronaldo’s transfer is understandable and positive. Cristiano has become the most expensive player to sign for Manchester United. It’s expected that he’ll be a big hit with the club and its fans. But the real question is, what will the players think of the new addition to the squad?
Fans of Ronaldo at Manchester United have also expressed their joy at the prospect of a reunion with the former Barcelona captain. Meanwhile, Edwin van der Sar and Bruno Fernandes, who play for Portugal and the Premier League, tweeted their congratulations to Ronaldo. As for Jesse Lingard, who is linked with a move away from the club this summer, he has not been shy of expressing his gratitude for his former teammate.
