For the past month or so, Manchester United have been pushed forward as one of the candidates to take Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus this summer.
The forward finished the season as top scorer in Serie A with 29 goals and also went on to win the Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia. With that, he has now won the league and cup competitions, and also finished as top scorer, in England, Spain and Italy.
Ronaldo took to Instagram to state he has achieved the goal that he set for himself when he arrived in Italy in 2018.
Calciomercato view the 36-year-old’s post as his ‘farewell message’, and add there are ‘technical and motivational aspects’, and above all ‘economic aspects’ that would take him away from Juve.
From Jorge Mendes’ European tour, only two ‘concrete alternatives’ have emerged so far; Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
According to the claims, the Red Devils are ‘ready to open the door’ for their former star to return to Old Trafford, but on their own terms. Ronaldo ‘could also accept’ the terms that would be proposed by United.
PSG are waiting to see how the situation with Kylian Mbappé plays out and if he leaves, they will consider replacing him with the Portugal international.
Juve still have to balance €28m from the attacker’s transfer and that can be achieved if they manage to get him off their wage bill next season.
Ronaldo has sent a message, but a final decision is yet to arrive. Manchester United and PSG, for now, remain the only two ‘concrete’ options, according to these claims.
