Cristiano Ronaldo was clever, his lie denounced

In his controversial interview, Cristiano Ronaldo also spoke about his decision in the summer of 2021. The Manchester United striker explains why he ultimately rejected Manchester City’s offer. Only here, the Citizens give a very different version.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s statements continue to make people talk. At the time of the World Cup break, the Manchester United striker completely let go of his club. The Portuguese notably confessed that he did not respect his manager Erik ten Hag. The management is also targeted since CR7 accuses the club of not having evolved since his departure in 2009. Another statement has also not gone unnoticed, the one in which Cristiano Ronaldo explains his decision to fail Manchester City in the summer of 2021.

It was close… I talked a lot with themtold the fivefold Ballon d’Or to journalist Piers Morgan. But as you know, there is my story at Manchester United. And of course, Sir Alex Ferguson. The heart spoke in this decision. (…) I do not regret on certain points. Ferguson was key. I talked with him. He said to me: “It’s impossible for you to sign for Manchester City”. And I said, “OK, boss.” So I made my decision and it was a good decision. Except that the Citizens don’t have the same version of the story at all.

Man City’s reaction

Through the Daily Mail, the team coached by Pep Guardiola assures that Cristiano Ronaldo has not put an end to the negotiations. It is rather the champion of England who, according to his own version, stopped everything with the former player of Juventus Turin because of the doubts aroused by his possible signature internally. Anyway, Manchester City surely do not regret the failure of his transfer. The Citizens didn’t need him to finish top of the Premier League last season, before Erling Haaland arrived in the summer.
