Manchester United is said to be one of Cristiano Ronaldo’s destinations after the end of the 2020/21 season, but reportedly there is also one reason that the Red Devils will not send their former player back.
Cristiano Ronaldo does have a pretty strong bond with Manchester United. In fact, it can be said that his name became known to the public since the Red Devils bought him from Sporting CP in 2003.
During approximately six seasons, Ronaldo won many titles with Manchester United, including the European Champions League title in 2008. His first Ballon d’Or was also won the same year.
Therefore, Cristiano Ronaldo, who was rumored to be moving clubs in the summer, following his failure to take Juventus further in the European Champions League, is closely linked with his former club.
The speculation of Ronaldo’s transfer to Old Trafford continues to be the topic of conversation to the point that former Liverpool player Don Hutchinson is interested in commenting.
For him, Manchester United will not repatriate Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford for a reason, namely their plan to recruit Erling Haaland.
“Where does this question come from? Manchester United are not even thinking about the possibility of taking Ronaldo. Impossible, impossible.”
“They are looking at Erling Haaland, they are looking for young players. Ronaldo, I think he is great but no big club will take him now,” said Hutchinson on ESPN FC’s Extra Time.
Apart from Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo is also believed to be considering the possibility of returning to Real Madrid’s arms in the summer, but Hutchinson is also not sure that will happen.
“I heard rumors that he will also return to Real Madrid – I don’t see that going to happen,”
“So, Juventus looks quite satisfied, he scored a hat-trick at the weekend, got up, and everything looks fine. Let him enjoy his life at Juventus,” he concluded.
In fact, this is not the first time Cristiano Ronaldo has been rumored to leave Juventus, he has also been rumored to be leaving since last summer.
But the fact is that the superstar remains in Turin, he has just broken Pele’s record as the all-time top scorer.
