Cristiano Ronaldo will continue to be a top name in the summer transfer market. The Portuguese footballer, aged 37, isn't willing to leave the Champions League for a year and is looking to find an exit to allow him to play in the continental competition. Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Roma have already contacted Sporting de Portugal to inquire about a player who is open to a change in scene.
"Of course I count on Cristiano Ronaldo. He is very important to the club, he's a giant for all he's shown and his great ambition," Erik Ten Hag, the new coach of the "red devils", stated in an interview with Telegraaf at the end May. Manchester United was already in a recurring crisis, and it was almost impossible to say goodbye to the Champions League. The ghost of the goodbye of its greatest player hovered over Old Trafford. CR7 contemplated the possibility of moving to a team that would allow his continued success in the elite.
This ghost is growing larger today. Jorge Mendes, super agent, has offered Cristiano Ronaldo to several of Europe's most important clubs. As a replacement for Lewandowski, the prestigious representative called Bayern Munich offices. However, he discovered that Sadio Mane was already in Germany. The representatives have since started calls to the Premier League.
Chelsea appears to be the most keen team for the Madeira star. After Lukaku's imminent departure to Inter Milan, the 'blues have started a reconstruction. The Londoners would get CR7, and the player would have the chance to play in the best leagues in the world. He was the champion of Champions League two years ago, a title the Portuguese star hopes to win with Paco Gento, who has six wounds.
The situation of Cristiano Ronaldo this summer is very similar to that of a year ago. Manchester United refuses to let go of a key player in its squad, just as Juventus did. Madeira's man scored 24 goals last season. This was more than any other player in the red devils team. Manchester United needs this star to help it recover its lost ground.
After a tug-of war with Madeira's star, the Italians opened negotiations. An auction was held that saw the Manchester and Madeira teams competing in an auction. The dispute ended with Old Trafford. Chelsea is currently leading the bid, waiting for Jorge Mendes's shaker. Only a few people can do it.
Cristiano has two options. He could choose to stay in Manchester or move to Chelsea. Jorge Mendes already considered the possibility of Cristiano returning to Serie A. He also considered other options, such as joining Roma. Roma is a club that has made a significant investment from the Friedkin Group. This would be where he would get to meet Jose Mourinho.
There is also the possibility of a return to Sporting de Portugal. This alternative option, as well as the possibility that he will return home to complete his career, has been discussed. It has not been ruled out either by the Portuguese or by any club that welcomes him with open arms. I would love him to end his career here at home. He is an ambassador for the world, Bruno de Carvalho, President of Sporting.
Given Cristiano Ronaldo's winning personality, the last and most likely option is to abandon the main stage in favor of a league with lower competition. Inter Miami and David Beckham offer this option. According to the 'Daily Star, Beckham has already tried to contact the Manchester United player from England, but was refused by the player. He could then face Gareth Bale (recently signed by Los Angeles FC), his former teammate.
