While Cristiano Ronaldo has repeatedly denied rumours that he is on the verge of a return to Sporting Lisbon, Portuguese club manager Ruben Amorim has played down the links. Rumours of a return to Sporting Lisbon have emerged after Manchester United owner Jorge Mendes met with his agent to discuss a possible deal. And now Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has expressed an interest in bringing Ronaldo to the Bernabeu.
Cristiano Ronaldo denies rumours of return to Sporting Lisbon
Cristiano Ronaldo has denied reports that he is set to return to Sporting Lisbon and said that rumours are simply “fake news”. There are plenty of rumours surrounding the Portuguese superstar’s future at Manchester United, including a rumour that he could sign for a new club after the end of his current deal. He has also been linked with Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Despite the fact that Sporting Lisbon finished second in the Portuguese league last season, Ronaldo has denied rumours that he could be heading back to his former club.
The reports reportedly emerged after Sport TV showed a picture of a white SUV parked in the Jose Alvalade stadium’s underground car park. The car was thought to belong to the Portugal star and many Sporting fans hoped that this would signal a return to the Portuguese club. However, Cristiano Ronaldo denies any rumours of a return to Sporting Lisbon, but he has refused to shut the door on any other club.
While it’s doubtful that he’ll return to Sporting, the legend’s status with the Portuguese club has not diminished since leaving for Manchester United. The club’s recent title run was a great achievement for the Portuguese team, and he is reportedly very proud of it. Sporting’s recent success has boosted his status in the club, which is another reason he denied rumours of a return.
Reports have also suggested that Ronaldo has told Manchester United’s executive committee that he wishes to leave the club. Although Manchester United is the English record champions, the club has no intention of selling their record star. The unnamed club offered 250 million euros for two seasons in the hope of securing Ronaldo’s services. In any case, the Portuguese club has no interest in selling Ronaldo.
Manchester United start their Premier League season against Brighton in three weeks, and it is unclear whether Ronaldo will still be at the club when it starts. The team has made three signings since the summer, including Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia. Christian Eriksen is the latest free-agent to join the club. Frenkie de Jong is still the club’s target but he is not keen on leaving Barcelona.
Ruben Amorim plays down rumours of a move to the Portuguese side
Ruben Amorim is quick to play down rumors of a possible Cristiano Ronaldo move to Sporting Lisbon. The Portuguese manager spent most of his career playing for Benfica, where he won a quadruple and played 14 times for Portugal. He then began a career as a manager, initially with Lisbon’s Casa Pia. The team was well-known for its conservative style of play.
Nevertheless, Amorim has played down rumours that the Portuguese club is in talks with Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite the fact that the Portuguese club have been in the headlines in the transfer market for several months, Amorim has consistently denied rumours of a move to the Red Devils. He has been linked with the job of permanent manager at Manchester United, but his lack of knowledge about the club means he is unable to make a decision.
Atletico Madrid are interested in signing the Portuguese forward, but many fans have spoken out against his signing. Sporting CP boss Ruben Amorim is quick to dismiss the rumours, insisting the priority for him is his young Brazilian centre-back Matheus Nunes. It is rumoured that the Portuguese international has been in talks with at least three other clubs, including Atletico Madrid.
Sporting Lisbon manager Ruben Amorim is keen to reassure the club that he is not interested in a return to the Portuguese side. However, he has been steadfast in denying any such rumours, as he is keen to play for the Champions League next season. The Portuguese star is desperate for a Champions League place and Sporting Lisbon’s Premier League position will be a major bonus for him.
After winning the Portuguese league cup at Braga, the Portuguese side has won their first championship in 19 years and have reached the last 16 of the Champions League. Ruben Amorim has turned Sporting Lisbon into the talk of the moment and may be the man to replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. It’s a surprise, but Amorim is a hot prospect.
Manchester United owner Jorge Mendes meets with his agent Jorge Mendes to discuss a possible deal
The club have announced the appointment of interim sporting director Bill Boehly, after longtime chief executive Marina Granovskaia will step down at the end of the transfer window. Mendes and Ronaldo have discussed a possible deal in the past, and Boehly’s appointment to the role is a further sign that they are working to bolster their attacking options.
Rumours have it that Ronaldo has been meeting with Manchester United’s agents to discuss a possible move to the Premier League club. While he is still attached to the club, reports have it that Bayern Munich are also interested in the Portugal international. Despite the reports, it seems highly unlikely that the pair will agree on a deal before the transfer window closes.
There are also rumours that Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has been meeting with Mendes. While this is very unlikely to happen, the meeting has spurred a lot of speculation about the future of the club and the future of Cristiano Ronaldo. However, United have been firmly steadfast in their stance on the matter, with Jimmy Ten Hag stating that Ronaldo is not for sale.
Despite this, the news is not encouraging for fans of the club. The club’s current star player, Wayne Rooney, has expressed an interest in moving on to a new club, and it is unclear if he will join a rival. He may be looking to sign Ronaldo after the summer transfer window is closed, as he wants to bring some of the glory days back to Old Trafford.
According to reports, the American billionaire has also met with the Portuguese international’s agent to discuss a possible deal. Although United’s recent loan deal for Romelu Lukaku has been highly rumoured, Ronaldo is also a potential replacement for the Belgium international. Ronaldo has played for Manchester United for 19 seasons and is a five-time European champion.
Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is interested in a move for Ronaldo
Juventus and Real Madrid have been linked with a move for the Portugal international, but the Portuguese club is now leading the race to sign the superstar. The Italian club have sold over half a million shirts since confirming the deal on Monday. The deal is expected to cost Juventus in excess of PS300m, with the player’s four-year stay expected to cost over PS300m. According to the Daily Mail, Juventus are hopeful that Ronaldo will inject new life into Italian football.
The Portuguese manager has spoken of the possibility of signing Ronaldo in the summer, as he was ‘impressed’ by Simeone’s efforts. The 33-year-old was signed by Real Madrid for a world record fee of PS80million in 2009. He scored at least 25 goals in the league every season since he joined the club. However, a move to the Premier League is not realistic at the moment, as Real Madrid have already signed Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain.
Manchester United have not yet closed the deal for Antony and Frenkie de Jong, a couple of players who are crucial for United’s success. Although United have been chasing Ronaldo for a while, they haven’t completed a deal yet. After a meeting with United’s chiefs, Ronaldo left the Carrington training complex at 5pm. Although United have been linked with a move for the Portugal international, they are also looking at other options, despite the potential for a lucrative transfer.
Although it’s a fantasy scenario, it’s unlikely that a Juventus move will materialise. Ronaldo’s contract is up in June 2015, but Florentino Perez has stated that he intends to keep him until the end of his contract. He also wants to win a 10th European crown. That’s what he is looking for, and he isn’t letting anyone stop him from doing that.
The Portuguese manager has reportedly called Ronaldo and suggested a move to AS Roma. Ronaldo is currently contracted with Juventus until June 2022. However, it is likely that he will not want to spend another season with a club without UEFA Champions League football. While Bayern Munich and Manchester United have been linked to Ronaldo, Roma are now putting their name in the ring as well.
