As we have reported in the past, Manchester United are prepared to sanction a loan to Cristiano Ronaldo if Atletico Madrid come knocking. However, United officials aren’t relying on a successful first season under new manager Erik ten Hag. Rather, they are expecting a top four finish and hope to entice Ronaldo to stay another season in the Champions League. If that happens, it would mean offering him a season extension in the Champions League and an opportunity to spend his final season in the American league. Old Trafford sources don’t seem to have ruled out the possibility of a top-four finish, but they are not committing to a top-four finish because it would satisfy headline sponsors.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent wants to sign for Atletico Madrid
Aside from the possibility of signing a top player, Atletico have been linked with signing Cristiano Ronaldo. However, the club’s executives are not so keen on signing the Portuguese star, due to the club’s financial difficulties. Atleti have breached their financial fair play target by EUR45 million, and will need to clear a large amount of wages in the near future.
The club has been linked with a deal for Cristiano Ronaldo after the Argentine sold Antoine Griezmann and made a move for Antoine Griezmann from Real Madrid. While Diego Simeone has already shown interest in signing Ronaldo, the club have a number of major problems. They need to clear up the wage bill in order to seal the deal. It is unlikely that Simeone will be able to do so without having to pay Ronaldo’s salary.
Atletico have reportedly been approached by several top European clubs after the Portuguese winger’s agent stated that he would prefer a move to Atletico Madrid. While the club would be able to compete for the Champions League next season, Ronaldo is not a fan favorite at Atletico. A move to a top European club would boost the player’s popularity in the Spanish capital.
Ronaldo’s contract is not for sale at Old Trafford
Assuming that the former Ajax boss is right about the repercussions on the club’s finances, the first question on many minds will be whether United are willing to sanction a loan to Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese striker has been a thorn in the side of United for some time, but a counteroffer to Jorg’s contract from Manchester City might be just what the club needs.
There are many factors influencing this decision, including the fact that Ronaldo has been undergoing personal reasons since leaving United, including a one-year option clause. If the Portuguese striker were to leave on loan, the club would be unable to meet his wage demands. Moreover, the UEFA contract has a clause that allows clubs to match the value of Cristiano Ronaldo’s loan.
Despite the interest from other clubs, United’s timing for this move has been described as “awful”. Apparently, the player knew United would not be in the Champions League in April, yet waited until July to reveal his intentions. In addition, many wonder if the trigger was pulled by Chelsea. United players have a salary reduction clause if they fail to qualify for the Champions League. If United fail to qualify for the Champions League, they are automatically down 25% of their salaries.
In the meantime, United haven’t posted any news about Ronaldo on their official Instagram account, despite welcoming back players to Carrington. The last post on the account was about a day ago, but no mention of Cristiano in the post. This doesn’t necessarily mean that a deal hasn’t been reached, but it certainly means that Manchester United is ready to sanction the loan of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is a free agent
Manchester United are keen to sanction a loan deal for Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, and the Real Madrid winger remains open to the idea. Ronaldo has not yet signed a new contract with the Red Devils, but is prepared to sign a season-long loan if the club can entice him with a Champions League return. A deal that would include a one-year contract extension would also suit Ronaldo.
United are confident of a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, but will also be keen on a Europa League triumph. This would cement Manchester’s status as a major European club, and would persuade Ronaldo to accept a final-season contract. The team are due to return to England on Monday or Tuesday, having spent the last two weeks on pre-season tours in Australia and Thailand. Afterwards, the team will plan two weeks of intense training to ensure that they can prepare for the upcoming season.
Despite being benched by the caretaker manager, Ronaldo had helped the Red Devils to reach the Champions League knockout stages in midweek. However, he was dropped in the second half, with Michael Carrick as caretaker manager. However, he was quickly restored after the hour mark and scored the winner, netting a penalty for Chelsea in the process.
Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United
There are rumours about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Manchester Utd and he is concerned about this summer’s transfer window. While United are preparing for their fifth Europa League campaign in eight years, Ronaldo has not played in the competition since 2002 when he was just 17 for Sporting Lisbon. New manager Erik ten Hag has said that Ronaldo is in his plans, but he is also interested in signing Ajax winger Antony. According to ten Hag, the Brazilian will start the season through the middle, with the new addition to flank him.
The Portuguese forward has been unable to train with the team this summer, which has reignited speculations over his future. United have insisted that they are not interested in selling Cristiano, but his absence from pre-season training and his desire to join a UEFA Champions League club has reignited those speculations. But Ronaldo has been a reluctant player to speak about his future and has already missed United’s trip to Thailand.
A move to the Middle East is unlikely, however. Ronaldo would like to win the Champions League and reckons he still has at least four years to prove himself. However, United are not in the market to sign a new centre-forward until next season. That means they will have to find a replacement for the player, which could be a tough task. However, they could go for Antony, who is a Brazilian winger and is unlikely to play centrally.
Paulo Dybala’s future at Manchester United
It is difficult to predict how Dybala’s future at Manchester United will play out, but the news puts a new twist on the rumours surrounding the player. According to Tuttomercatoweb, Manchester United met with the player’s representatives in April, but it was not until recently that the two sides were linked again. It is possible that United will be able to sign Dybala in the summer transfer window if the player drops his demands. Manchester United could end up getting a bargain, and it is highly unlikely that Dybala will be sold to a rival.
There are reports that Juventus and Manchester United have held talks about signing Dybala in the summer transfer window, but the talks have cooled since Manchester United signed Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea. Other interested parties include Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. Manchester United are likely to face a transfer war this summer, but Dybala is only one of several players whose future is uncertain. The only way to get the latest information on Old Trafford is to sign a newsletter from United.
While Juventus have not made any formal announcements, reports have surfaced that United have been in talks with Dybala’s agent. The news follows the announcement that Dybala will leave Juventus in May after failing to agree terms on a new contract. It is believed that Ronaldo’s departure will leave Manchester United short of ambition and he wants to push for silverware at the highest level. The Italian media is also sulking at the lack of ambition in Manchester United.
Manchester United’s interest in signing Paulo Dybala
The recent news that Paulo Dybala is wanted by Manchester United is exciting news for the Red Devils. The Argentine is a forward for Serie A club Roma. He has also represented his country at the international level. Whether Dybala signs for Manchester United is a question that remains to be seen. However, it is easy to see why Manchester United would be interested in the young forward.
According to ESPN, Manchester United’s interest in signing Dybala has cooled slightly after the club signed Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea. The two sides have not yet finalised the deal, but both are interested in signing the Argentine. It is thought that Dybala’s representatives are trying to get a deal done in England, and have already held talks with the club’s chiefs.
Reports of Dybala’s interest in a move to Manchester United have raised some skepticism. Although Dybala is out of contract with Juventus, a move to the Premier League would be a huge coup for the Red Devils. Manchester United’s interest in signing Dybala is an excellent way to bring back a star player to their squad, but he is likely to cost a considerable amount.
While the club did not pursue the deal, it did show that Manchester United is interested in securing a striker. Dybala joined Juventus in the summer of 2018 and will become a free agent in the summer of 2022. The club has been linked with a number of top European clubs, including Manchester United and Inter Milan. However, Dybala’s interest in Manchester is not linked to Cristiano Ronaldo, so United are trying to land him in a free transfer.
