What will happen if Cristiano Ronaldo is offered a deal at Manchester United? If Ronaldo were to return to the Premier League, what would the response be from Sir Alex Ferguson? Would Ronaldo really be able to lead the team at Old Trafford? These are all questions that have been on the minds of Manchester United fans since the Portuguese superstar joined Paris Saint-Germain. Here are some reasons why he should join the Red Devils.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford
The future of Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United is a big question mark following his recent comments. The Portuguese is expected to listen to several offers from rival clubs this summer. Ten Hag is a close friend of Ronaldo and has reportedly agreed to become the new manager of the Red Devils. The former Barcelona star has also indicated that he is keen to leave the club next season. This is a huge blow for the club as it would result in the loss of several key players on free transfers.
The Portuguese international is entering the final year of a two-year contract. Assuming he stays, he wants to play for a team that can compete for trophies. United’s chances of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League next season look bleak. Instead, they will compete in the Europa League. Until this year, Ronaldo may not even get the chance to prove himself to the club’s fans.
According to reports, Ronaldo has given Manchester United an ultimatum. He wants world-class players to surround him for the rest of his career. Although Paul Pogba has the respect of the Portuguese star, his future at Old Trafford is not entirely secure. If Ronaldo does decide to leave, he will be able to play Champions League football for the rest of his career.
If he stays at Manchester United, he could extend his contract until 2023. However, if United don’t qualify for the Champions League, it’s unlikely that Ronaldo will remain at the club. Regardless, the future of Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford may well depend on who arrives in the coming weeks. But he is determined to stay at Old Trafford.
His future at Paris Saint-Germain
If Manchester United fail to finish in the top four this season, Cristiano Ronaldo may leave to join Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain. Ronaldo has been deciding between a move to PSG and Manchester United ever since his interim manager Ralf Rangnick arrived in December. The Portuguese forward has been linked with Manchester City and Juventus before signing for Man United.
Recent reports have suggested that PSG may want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, who is keen to join Messi at PSG and win a few more major honours. The report from Gazzetta dello Sport said that PSG and United are both vying for Ronaldo and that the deal could be done through a swap deal. PSG are desperate to win the Champions League this season, and the signing of Ronaldo would make their season more successful.
PSG are bracing for the departure of Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid. A signing of Ronaldo would soften the blow for PSG as they can play Messi and Mbappe on opposite flanks. Chelsea are believed to be in the market for a striker after losing Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan on loan. PSG are also said to be in the running for Erling Haaland.
With Mauricio Pochettino’s reign as manager, the Portuguese is confident of leaving Manchester United. The Portuguese international has been frustrated with the lack of progress in the Premier League, and the FA Cup exit exacerbated his discontent. The Premier League champions have failed to win any silverware this season. With the transfer rumours rife, PSG may take advantage of the situation.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s reaction to his return to Old Trafford
After a protracted transfer battle between Manchester City and Manchester United, the Portuguese forward has finally returned to Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson is an ambassador for the club and remains a close confidant to current United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Ronaldo was on the verge of a move to the Etihad Stadium, but Sir Alex decided to intervene and convince the forward to stay at United. The former United manager reportedly called Cristiano Ronaldo and told him not to move to the Etihad Stadium, saying: “Don’t join City.” Other Manchester clubs, meanwhile, have doubts over the signing of Nordi Mukiele and Erling Haaland.
The former Manchester United manager’s comments have caused a stir on social media, as evidenced by footage posted by the Russian martial artist Khabib Nurmagomedov. Sir Alex Ferguson, a legend in the sport, made it clear he didn’t want Ronaldo to start the game against Everton on Saturday. Despite scoring the opening goal, Ronaldo did not feature during the first half and was only brought on as a substitute eight minutes before the end. However, Solskjaer says that he is relaxed about the situation.
Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford after 12 years, and Sir Alex Ferguson’s reaction was equally heartwarming. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner impressed the United fans in a friendly against the club. After the match, he scored his second goal for the home side, which led Sir Alex to call Ronaldo his ‘Father in Football’.
His ability to lead the line at Old Trafford
It is important to note that, while Ronaldo is a great player, he does not necessarily make Manchester United a better team. While United’s greatest players are great, the current team does not function as a cohesive unit without him. Ronaldo’s presence commands the team to play in a manner that is not appropriate for the team. His presence also makes the team play in a way that is not suited to its strengths.
Despite the ominous situation, the new manager of Manchester United must determine whether Ronaldo will play a leading role in the team. While it is true that United do not have the luxury of a top striker, the club’s current players need a captain. If Ronaldo is not allowed to lead the line, the team will struggle to perform well. If Ronaldo does not play in a central role, United’s team will struggle to perform.
In addition to being a top-class striker, the Portuguese star’s influence over the younger squad members is also crucial. Marcus Rashford, Diogo Dalot and Anthony Elanga idolize Ronaldo. The Manchester United team is set to play Leeds at Elland Road on Sunday, and Rangnick will address the media on Friday to answer questions about Maguire’s role as captain.
While Ronaldo is a great player and an excellent leader of the line, he is not always a good winger. The Portuguese team manager also has a tendency to drop deep and suffocate his defensive markers. That said, if Solskjaer were to play Ronaldo as the No. 10 in the team, he could boost United’s chances of a trophy. However, if he plays as a winger, Solskjaer could risk causing disenchantment among the attacking players.
His future at Juventus
Reports from Juventus have hinted that the club is considering a summer move for Cristiano Ronaldo. Juventus’ transfer ban was reportedly to ease financial concerns but a lack of finances isn’t the only reason for a deal. Some players have openedly discussed how much Ronaldo had contributed to the dressing room and the club. Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for Ronaldo, although that didn’t work out for the Frenchman.
Reports suggest that the deal between Manchester City and Juventus has been thwarted by the refusal of Man City to pay the fee for Cristiano to join. Earlier this week, Juventus’ president Massimiliano Allegri claimed that Ronaldo would not play for Juventus again and that he wanted to join Manchester United. However, the deal would have to comply with Financial Fair Play rules, so a move to Manchester City or Manchester United is unlikely to go through.
Juventus’ top-scorer has been linked with Manchester City in recent months but it has been the Red Devils’ most successful player in the past decade. They signed him as a free transfer in 2009 and the club hoped he would remain with them after his time in Manchester. However, the deal ended in the opposite way, and the Portuguese international left the club after just one season.
Although Ronaldo is currently under contract at Juventus, he still has a year to extend his contract at the club. Manchester United have a number of problems to sort out. Anthony Martial was on loan at Sevilla, while Mason Greenwood has been a huge disappointment this season. But Ronaldo has hinted that he intends to stay at the club at least for the rest of the season, possibly even two more years.
