It seems that Cristiano Ronaldo’s career at Juventus will not last long, the Portuguese superstar has reportedly asked his agent to offer him to several big European clubs, including Manchester United.
Crisitano Ronaldo and Manchester United do have a pretty strong bond, considering that is where the player’s name is known and his performance is growing rapidly.
Purchased from Sporting CP in 2003, Ronaldo won many titles including the Champions League in 2008. He also won his first Ballon d’Or that year.
Ronaldo then joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2009, nine years later he left the Santiago Bernabeu to join Juventus.
Well, in the summer of 2020, it turned out that Cristiano Ronaldo had offered himself through his transfer agent, Jorge Mendes, to rejoin Old Trafford.
Apart from Manchester United, Ronaldo also offered to join the French Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain. Unfortunately, neither of the two clubs accepted the opportunity to recruit Ronado.
This was disclosed by an Italian journalist named Emanuele Gambia.
“Basically, Mendes has urged Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United to make a move, both of which said no,” Gambia told Calciomercato.
Furthermore, Gambia is pessimistic about seeing Cristiano Ronaldo join the European giants if he does leave Juventus, given the financial condition of almost all clubs today.
“To be honest, I can’t see a different possibility happening now, at least in Europe,” he said.
In fact, Gambia considers that the golden opportunity for Ronaldo to join another club was last season, while for the following summer it seems that there are no big clubs interested in winning this 5 Ballon d’Or.
“Will he leave? I think the only time that opportunity exists was last summer, and I think his staff has moved in that direction,”
“I believe Mendes has moved to look for possibilities and did not find them. I doubt that one year later, with Ronaldo getting older and more out of date, this possibility will disappear.” says the Gambia.
