After Cristiano Ronaldo’s explosive interview with Piers Morgan, Manchester United received their first transfer request for the superstar player.
The 37-year-old has now attacked Erik ten Hag, the Glazers, and his teammates after expressing his desire to leave the club during the summer.
After Boehly brought up the idea to former manager Thomas Tuchel, the German refused to consider it, which led to his eventual dismissal. As a result, the Blues never made a move for the 37-year-old. Ronaldo appears to be eligible to sign in January after almost burning all of his bridges at United,
which could prompt Boehly to rekindle his interest in clinching a move for the Portugal star.
One chance has now opened up for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner following the explosive interview with Piers Morgan, with A-League CEO Danny
Townsend providing a path for Ronaldo to transfer to Australia. In comments published by News Corp, Townend said: “[Ronaldo] said he wasn’t getting any love and respect at Manchester United, but we’ll certainly give him plenty of love and respect in Australia.
“We might not be able to compete financially with other offers, but we can compete in other ways. Obviously, it’s a long shot, but we’ve certainly got a compelling proposition for him here in Australia to consider.”
In moving to Australia, he would be following in the footsteps of several former Premier League players, notably former Chelsea stars William Gallas and Daniel Sturridge. Ronaldo probably won’t want to move to Australia because he still wants to play in the UEFA Champions League to add to his goal total and compete at the highest level.
