Football player Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly told his English Premier League club Manchester United that he wants to transfer for the upcoming season, ending his second tenure in the club soon after the first season. According to some unknown sources, F.C. Chelsea is reportedly considering the Manchester United superstar to move in their direction. According to The Athletic, the Blues are very interested in bringing the soccer player to Stamford Bridge as the rumors of his transfer fly high. The 37-year-old player is the only one to create history in English, Italian, and European football leagues.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been aggrieved with Manchester United’s lack of motivation in the last English cup and Champions league performance rate. The Red Devils were not among the qualifiers in any of the last major football leagues that initiated the soccer player to think the other way. The Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes has talked to the Chelsea owner regarding Cristiano’s current transfer dilemma, the most talked-about debate in the football world currently. The new Chelsea owner has given a definite hint about transferring the considered player, making it the club’s first signing for the summer window.
Manchester United has not yet shown any keenness on selling their ‘forward’ in the coming season. The second believed position for the soccer giant is Bayern Munich, as it has started considering options for its forward position. However, Thomas Tuchel (Head coach of Premier League club Chelsea) has previously admitted that he is inclined towards signing Ronaldo into his team after seeing him score single-handedly for Man. United throughout the last season. Tuchel spoke about the footballer soon after he moved to United last August and stated that any team without Ronaldo is in itself a weaker team, making an apparent assumption of his fondness for him.
The breakup between Man. United and Cristiano Ronaldo will be a crack between the two most prominent brands in soccer today. Manchester United is the third most valuable club in the world and has the most valuable Premier League franchise, worth $4.6 billion, as reported by Forbes. According to last year’s calculations, Cristiano is the third highest-paid athlete in the world with a total net worth of $115 million, following only Lionel Messi and LeBron James. According to some reports, Ronaldo has become the first player to cross $1 billion in his career earnings. The decision affects not only the federation of English Football Clubs but also his fans.
