Instead of Manchester City, Cristiano Ronaldo is now likely to move to his former club Manchester United. According to information from SPOX and Goal, the Red Devils Juventus have made an offer of 28 million euros for the 36-year-old attacker.
A return of Ronaldo to United is imminent. On Thursday it became clear that the five-time world footballer will leave Juventus this summer after three years in the club, despite a contract until 2022. On Friday afternoon, Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri confirmed Ronaldo’s departure from Turin at a press conference.
As a new employer, United’s city rivals Manchester City seemed to be in pole position for a long time. The Skyblues withdrew from poker on Friday despite talks with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes.
According to information from SPOX And Goal was CR7 himself not particularly interested in a move to City anyway.
