the 5 possible destinations for Cristiano Ronaldo

What’s next after this ad

The Mancunian euphoria did not even last a year. Returning to the fold in 2021, Cristiano Ronaldo (37) had chosen to find a familiar environment after being quickly tired of Turin. Unfortunately for the Red Devils, the Portuguese’s thirst for victory could end CR7’s second spell at Old Trafford prematurely.

In recent days, the English press has been on high alert since the Lusitanian was not present at the last training sessions. Preview at the training center of the Portuguese selection in Lisbon, Ronaldo does not seem at all in a hurry to return to Carrington. And that’s not all. The announcement of a summit meeting between his agent Jorge Mendes and FC Barcelona boss Joan Laporta has set Spain on fire.

CR7 has a choice

Today, the least we can say is that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is spoiled for choice. AS indeed indicates that the latter has 5 options in front of him. The first is Bayern Munich. Despite the denials of the Bavarian sports director, Hasan Salihamidzic, the Spanish newspaper claims that contacts between the German club and the Portuguese are maintained.

The other exit door leads to London and Chelsea. The new Blues manager, Todd Boehly, has let Jorge Mendes know that he wants to make a big move for his first transfer window, despite the reluctance of Thomas Tuchel. As mentioned above, the track leading to FC Barcelona is the third option. Laporta had already tried to repatriate him to La Liga a year ago. In vain. But Merengue’s past from CR7 and Blaugrana finances can be a serious obstacle.

The last two exits are in Italy. More discreet on the market than its Milanese or Turinese rivals, Napoli remains capable of brilliant strokes. And obviously, President De Laurentiis wants to try something. Finally, José Mourinho would like to collaborate again with his former protege at Real Madrid. The only concern for AS Roma, and it is a major one, is that the Giallorossi are not playing in the Champions League.
