Cristiano Ronaldo was absent this Monday at the resumption of training for Manchester United internationals for “family reasons”: It did not take more to relaunch the assumptions about an eventual departure from the club of its Portuguese star.
Ronaldo, 37, played in the Champions League for 19 consecutive seasons. The player would be very disappointed that Manchester United failed to qualify. for the next campaign in the highest European competition, having finished sixth in the Premier League in its last edition.
Despite the arrival of a renowned coach, the Dutchman Erik Ten Hag, from Ajax Amsterdam, Ronaldo, according to the press, does not think that MU will be able to compete at the highest level in the immediate future.
CR7 does not want to miss the Champions League
In the twilight of his career, the Portuguese, five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who has one year left on his contract with the Red Devils, would like to go to a club qualified for the Champions League, a competition in which he is the top scorer, for a ultimate challenge.
And if the leaders of Manchester United categorically affirm that their star player is not for sale, the press affirms that the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, would have tested the ground with the leaders of Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
Bomba: Barcelona would be negotiating for Cristiano Ronaldo
Also, the Spanish newspaper As launched another version that would be a bomb in the transfer market: according to the note, Mendes would be negotiating with Joan Laporta, president of Barcelona, the great rival of Real Madrid, club in which the Portuguese shone between 2009 and 2018.
“The Barça president and the Portuguese star’s agent are currently discussing the possibilities that exist for the ex-Madrid player to join the Barça ranks this summer. Mendes and Laporta have dinner with Cristiano on the table. It remains to be seen if it was the main course, the starters or the dessert. But the Portuguese star was on the tablecloth”, says As.
This version of the Spanish press adds that a year ago Laporta tried to sign CR7 and that this negotiation was pressure on Bayern to loosen its position of not transferring the Polish Robert Lewandowski, who wants to go to Barcelona.
Despite a season in which he did not shine, the former Real Madrid and Juventus Turin player was Manchester United’s top scorer with 24 goals.
