Almost undesirable now at Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has no serious suitor on the transfer market.
Never has Cristiano Ronaldo seemed so close to the end of his career. Despite a more than honorable performance last season still in the ranks of Manchester United (18 goals in 30 matches), the Portuguese goleador no longer has the aura that was his a few months ago. His attitude in England ended up convincing the Mancunian leaders that his future was certainly elsewhere… Yes, but now, no one seems willing to welcome the fivefold Ballon d’Or.
« The problem is that there was no real approach from a big European club. Ronaldo’s entourage has tried with Chelsea, Atlético de Madrid, FC Barcelona… But, for the moment, no one has shown interest, except for a club from Saudi Arabia », Blows thus relayed by Le Parisien Adam Crafton, journalist at The Athletic and specialist in the Red Devils. ” It is very expensive, adds the British critic. His salary is around 500,000 euros per week, which is huge. »
Requirements that cannot be met
In Manchester, CR7 has more or less kept his Turinese emoluments – around 30 million euros per year, bonus included. But he would be even more greedy now, driven by his ambition to compete again and again in the Champions League; what United failed to do last season. The Corriere dello Sport thus claims that his agent Jorge Mendes would have offered the services of the Portuguese star to the two Milan clubs this summer, but against an astronomical salary of 45 million euros per year.

Drop point or not, the divorce between Ronaldo and the Red Devils today seems inevitable. ” Maybe Manchester United will have to pay for the last year of Ronaldo’s contract, or they will come to some sort of deal that will see him leave the club for free. What is certain is that the atmosphere is not healthy at the moment “, judge Adam Crafton, not without specifying that part of the Mancunian locker room lives more and more badly the postures and whims of the phenomenon.
