Back in Manchester, Cristiano Ronaldo is however not certain to stay with the Red Devils and still hopes for a transfer window departure.
Rumors are multiplying around Cristiano Ronaldo, whose future is more vague than ever. Offended by Manchester United’s non-qualification for the next edition of the Champions League, the Portuguese asked to leave. But it is not so easy to buy CR7 and Atlético de Madrid is well placed to talk about it. Indeed, the Colchoneros have expressed their interest in welcoming Cristiano Ronaldo. But although the former Juventus Turin player is ready to make an effort, his salary remains colossal and Atlético de Madrid must sell at least two players if they want to recruit him. At this stage, the trend is therefore towards a status quo for Ronaldo, who could have a second – and last – season at Manchester United.
The companion of CR7 follows the wife of Diego Simeone
Nevertheless, Atlético de Madrid fans are still dreaming of a sensational transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo. It must be said that on social networks, an improbable clue maintains the fantasy of a signing of CR7 with the Colchoneros. Companion of the Mancunian striker, Georgina Rodriguez has “follow” the wife of Diego Simeone, who is none other than the coach of Atlético de Madrid. For Madrid fans, it was enough to ignite on social networks and to think that the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo is on the right track. In reality, the situation is much more complex. As indicated elsewhere, Atlético must succeed in parting with one or even two big salaries in order to be able to recruit Cristiano Ronaldo, who would of course be the highest paid player at the club. A departure from Antoine Griezmann would make things easier, but the French international has no intention of sacrificing himself to make room for Cristiano Ronaldo. The operation is therefore on stand-by and if it were to unblock, this should not happen before the last fortnight of August. In the meantime, Madrid fans will continue to closely follow Georgina Rodriguez’s “follows” and “likes”.
