The will of Cristiano Ronaldo (37) is intact: the Portuguese striker still wants to leave Manchester United to contest the Champions League in the coming season. According to the Spanish daily AS, CR7 wants things to speed up and would therefore like to leave MU before the Red Devils’ first Premier League match next Sunday against Brighton.
Less than a week before this deadline, the chances of seeing the five-time Ballon d’Or leave before this date are slim. His agent Jorge Mendes has been probing the biggest European clubs for several weeks, but none has yet made a proposal for the Lusitanian. Everything therefore suggests that the former Madrid player will still be in Manchester next weekend.
According to the newspaper, the two hottest tracks lead to Napoli and Atlético Madrid, despite denials from Madrid president Enrique Cerezo. The Colchoneros would not be against the arrival of Ronaldo, but the training coached by Diego Simeone must make several sales to be able to sign the star.
