Transfers – Premier League – Decided to leave Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo tries to return to Sporting CP

Cristiano Ronaldo seems to have only one obsession. He wants to play the Champions League next season, and therefore leave Manchester United who will not play it. After missing the Asian tour of the Red Devils, the superstar has found his teammates at the Carrington training center but his desires elsewhere are intact assures The Athletic. Sporting Portugal serves as a possible new destination.

Absent from the collective session, the 37-year-old striker mainly met the Mancunian leaders during a meeting in which his agent Jorge Mendes participated this week. He reaffirmed his wish to change air this summer. The main reason given by the British press being his desire to improve his record of 140 goals scored in C1, 15 more than his great personal rival Lionel Messi who will be well engaged in the competition with PSG.

Back to basics?

Only, the obstacles for a transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo are not lacking and appear substantial. First of all, Manchester United have no intention of giving him up because new manager Erik ten Hag is counting on him. Then, the tracks evoked move away one by one. Bayern Munich politely rejected the idea of ​​​​an arrival of the Portuguese international and Atlético de Madrid, which the Mancunian club must face on Saturday in a friendly match, did the same.

From then on, CR7 and his entourage studied all the possibilities and the most recent led to Sporting CP, where the player had started his professional career and caught the eye of the Red Devils in 2003 at the age of 18. The Lisbon club ticks a first box because it will compete well in the C1. On the other hand, he seems very far from being financially strong enough to afford such a recruit and his XXL salary.

If the story of a return of the prodigy to his training club could seduce and the welcome of local supporters hoped for as the warmest, the profile of Cristiano Ronaldo also poses a problem. According The Athleticthe characteristics of the 37-year-old striker do not correspond to the expectations of Lisbon coach Ruben Amorim.
