Will Cristiano Ronaldo end with United?

Published

It is understood that Portuguese international, Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Italian Serie A giants Juventus and heading to Manchester but it is not sure where he will end.

This is because Man City have been in talks with the former Real Madrid star with claims that he is leaving but latest report claims the Devils are set to hijack the deal and bring him back to Old Trafford.

Latest report claims that Man United have contacted Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes and appear to have successfully hijacked the Juventus star’s anticipated transfer to Manchester City.

The 36-year-old informed his current club of his desire to leave earlier this week and join a team capable of challenging for this season’s Champions League.

Cristiano Ronaldo already ruled out a move to Real Madrid, where he is also wanted and there could be no more space for him at French Ligue 1 club, PSG, hence he reportedly agreed a £510,000-a-week contract with City and had been willing to torch his United legacy, but his former club have made a desperate late attempt to convince him to return to Old Trafford.

Football transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano now says United have initiated talks with Mendes on Thursday and are now ‘seriously interested’ in signing a player who spent six trophy-laden years in England with the Red Devils between 2003 and 2009.

And with City, according to the BBC, now pulling out of the race, United are confident of beating their local rivals to the services of the five-times Ballon d’Or winner.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s match against Wolves, meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed his desire to sign his former teammate, and revealed Ronaldo’s international teammate Bruno Fernandes had been in touch with the ex-Real Madrid superstar.

‘Cristiano is a legend of this club, the the greatest player of all time if you ask me,’ Solskjaer said.

‘I was fortunate enough to play with him. I coached him when I got my job. Let’s see what happens.

‘We’ve always had a good communication. Bruno [Fernandes] has been talking to him as well and he knows what we feel about him. And if he was ever gonna move away from Juventus he knows we’re here.’

Solskjaer added: ‘I didn’t think Cristiano was gonna turn out leaving Juventus. And it’s been speculation this morning and the last few days.

‘Cristiano has been a legend of this club, he is a legend of this club, he’s the greatest player of all time, if you ask me. I was fortunate enough to play with him, I coached him when I got my job.

‘Such a tremendous human being, as well. Let’s see what happens with Cristiano. Everyone who’s played with him has a soft spot for him.’

Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
