Jorge Mendes continues to be optimistic that Cristiano Ronaldo could sign for Atletico Madrid, based on El Larguero.
The Spanish club continues to distance itself from links to the Portuguese veteran but there is alleged to be hope, Atletico could eventually be persuaded.
Firstly, Diego Simeone will attempt to shift a few of the club’s highest-paid players, including Antoine Griezmann and Saul Niguez.
Should Atletico eventually unlock some money, a move could very much be viable.
United would now ideally wish to sell Ronaldo as Erik ten Hag doesn’t need to keep players who don’t wish to remain on the club.
In keeping with Portuguese journalist Pedro Sepulveda, Ronaldo stays in Lisbon and is awaiting instructions from his agent Mendes, with Antony Martial expected to guide the road for United at the beginning of the season.
