The fate of Cristiano Ronaldo would be settled. In response to the incessant rumors of leaving in the offseason, Manchester United have decided to keep the Portuguese striker.
Bayern said no
Speculation is rife over Cristiano Ronaldo’s future. For several days, many clubs have been cited as possible destinations for the Portuguese striker from Manchester United. Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Sporting Portugal… So many formations considered interested in the services of the 37-year-old star. Through the voice of his sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, the 2022 German champion has clearly dismissed the file. For their part, the Blues passed under the American flag would have discussed the former resident of Real Madrid with his agent Jorge Mendes. Finally, the Portuguese club, where the native of Funchal was trained, would also have entered the track.
24 goals in 38 games in 2021-22
Visibly very upset with regard to its leaders, without it being publicly expressed, the 2016 European champion would claim recruits during this summer transfer window. Unhappy and/or at least questioning about Manchester United’s policy, can Cristiano Ronaldo make a radical decision by slamming the door? The club that plays at Old Trafford does not hear it that way. If we refer to the information disclosed by ESPN, management would have said no to his departure. Mancunian number 7 would not be available for sale. According to sources cited by our English colleague, the Mancunians “want and expect” that Cristiano Ronaldo continues the adventure.
Recruited for the sum of 15 million euros in the summer of 2021, the player with 188 caps and 117 goals with Portugal is still under contract until June 2023, plus an optional additional year. With Manchester United, sixth in the Premier League and not qualified for the next Champions League, “CR7” played 38 games and scored 24 goals in all competitions in 2021-2022, including 30 games and 18 league goals.
