Cristiano Ronaldo’s stance on joining Barcelona explained after nine years at Real Madrid | Football | Sport


Cristiano Ronaldo is unlikely to hitch Barcelona because he’s a ‘Real Madrid player at heart’, it has been claimed. The Manchester United star is desperate to leave Old Trafford behind this summer. And he desires to play within the Champions League, a tournament he’s won on five separate occasions throughout his profession.

Manchester United are facing the prospect of losing Ronaldo this summer.

The Portugal international feels his side have failed to point out enough ambition within the transfer market, with Tyrell Malacia their sole arrival up to now.

And Barcelona have emerged as potential suitors for the forward, despite him previously spending nine years at Real Madrid.

The Catalan giants are prioritising Robert Lewandowski but club president Joan Laporta reportedly held talks with Jorge Mendes about potentially signing Ronaldo as a substitute.

Yet Gianluca Di Marzio, chatting with Wettfreunde, has expressed a belief Ronaldo is unlikely to maneuver to the Nou Camp this summer.

“Italy is unimaginable for him,” he said.

The Blues need a recent centre-forward to switch Romelu Lukaku, who has been allowed to return to Inter Milan only a yr on from his Hollywood homecoming.

There’s been talk of Chelsea owner Todd Boehly talking with Mendes a few deal for Ronaldo, regardless that United wouldn’t wish to sell to a Premier League rival.

And Di Marzio said: “He (Cristiano Ronaldo) really desires to play within the Champions League.

“His aim is to proceed together with his Champions League records. His agent is trying to search out the very best solution for him for next season.

“That is why he’s talking to some clubs.

“Chelsea are entering a recent era and even when it’s ‘just’ a picture deal for the brand new owner and chairman, this might be a subject for the entire world to discuss.

“He could play within the Champions League with recent ’emotions and ambitions’.

“If he desires to play within the Premier League and Champions League, Chelsea is the one club in the intervening time.

“I do not think there are other big solutions for him at once.”

United would want compensating in the event that they let Ronaldo go, nonetheless, having agreed to pay within the region of £15million for the veteran last yr.

“Manchester United will even wish to be paid,” said Di Marzio.

“Last yr they struck a cope with Juventus so I do not think Manchester United wish to lose all that cash.”

And, on the potential for Ronaldo playing within the MLS, he said: “If Cristiano Ronaldo wants a unique sort of experience, a move to MLS can be an option.

I do know they need Cristiano in MLS.

“If not this yr, then probably next yr. But I feel he will certainly go to MLS before the top of his profession.”
