Cristiano Ronaldo handed shock transfer alternative amid Arsenal and Chelsea talk.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the star forward for Manchester United, has been linked with moves away from Old Trafford all summer as a result of his dissatisfaction with the Red Devils’ transfer policy.
This summer, there has been a lot of talk about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future. The Portuguese player wants to leave Manchester United, and he has been linked to several teams.
But many teams, notably Chelsea and Bayern Munich, have refrained from signing him to a long-term contract due to his age and salary demands. Despite the fact that the new manager, Erik ten Hag, claimed he was a part of his plans for the upcoming campaign at Old Trafford, United is reportedly open to letting him go.
Ten Hag provided the following explanation for Ronaldo’s absence from the team’s preseason tour: “He has personal reasons for not being here with us.
For this season, we are making plans with Cristiano Ronaldo. That’s all, and I’m eager to collaborate with him. We have Cristiano in mind, and we want to achieve success together.”
Due to the club’s sluggish transfer activity, Ronaldo is rumored to be looking for a way out of Old Trafford. Not only that, but his pay was decreased by 25% as a result of their inability to make the Champions League.
While offering him to the west London club, his representative Jorge Mendes met with the new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly, but the Blues made no attempt to sign him.
Arsenal has also been connected with a transfer, but primarily because Piers Morgan, a famous supporter, suggested it was “time” for the Portuguese to join the Gunners.
However, Ronaldo now has a fresh choice. According to our friends at the Mirror, United are ready to allow the multiple Ballon d’Or winner leave on loan, at the same time as extending his contract at Old Trafford.
The 38-year-old is rumored to be interested in a loan move with Roma and Atletico Madrid for the current campaign. Ronaldo would then return for what United hope will be his final season in the Champions League the following year, should they qualify.
The suggestion has reportedly caught Ronaldo and Mendes off guard but has not yet been rejected, according to the Mirror.
Could he be loaned out to any Premier League team? Chelsea has already stated their position, and only Tottenham would have a chance among the four Champions League qualifiers since United is unlikely to trade him to rivals Manchester City or Liverpool and Spurs is also reluctant to spend big money considering that they already have Harry Kane up front.
