“Cristiano is not for sale…”
Old Trafford executives expressed their outrage at the idea of selling Cristiano. They intend to collaborate with him once more the following season.
According to sources, Manchester United has clarified its position in response to claims that Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes spoke with Chelsea owner Todd Boehly.
This summer, speculations have suggested that Ronaldo, 37, may be on his way out the door because he is unhappy with United’s lack of activity in the transfer market. Following his takeover at Stamford Bridge, super agent Mendes spoke with Boehly, it was revealed on Saturday (June 25).
However, according to The Mirror, angry Old Trafford officials are refusing to budge from their position that Ronaldo is not going anywhere. They were informed by a source: “Cristiano is not for sale. We want – and fully expect – him to be with us next season.”
Last summer, the club veteran agreed to a two-year deal earning £500,000 per week, but his ideal comeback rapidly turned into a nightmare. He didn’t get the Champions League football he wanted due to his team’s sixth-place result, but Erik ten Hag’s hiring seemed to persuade him to stay.
Despite needing a significant squad revamp, the transfer window has started off poorly for United, who are already behind their rivals in the market.
Losing Ronaldo would make their already difficult summer much harder, and for him to go with a Premier League opponent would be practically inconceivable.
