Transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano late Saturday night said there are no ongoing talks for the sale of football superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Newsbreak reports that according to Romano, although things can change before the current transfer window ends, Manchester United and its manager, Erik ten Hag, both want ‘CR7’ to stay at Old Trafford this coming season.
“Transfer window’s still long, things can change… but Manchester United are clear on Cristiano Ronaldo: he’s considered not for sale, no talks now ongoing to sell him.
“Man United and Erik ten Hag both want Cristiano to stay and expect him to be part of the team,” the Italian journalist wrote on his verified Twitter page.
This news medium gathered that United were furious about reports that Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has met with new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly about a potential move to Stamford Bridge for the Portuguese.
And last week, there were claims in Portugal that Mendes had offered the 37-year-old to Bayern Munich because Ronaldo had become disillusioned with the club’s lack of action in the transfer market since appointing Ten Hag as manager.
United broke the bank to bring Ronaldo back to the club last summer by handing him a two-year contract worth £500,000-a-week. His return was supposed to turn United into champions – and he delivered his part of the bargain by top-scoring with 24 goals.
But United finished sixth, 35 points behind champions Manchester City, after a campaign which saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked and former interim boss Ralph Rangnick fail to turn the team’s fortunes around.
