Wishing to leave Manchester United this summer, Cristiano Ronaldo took a slap in the transfer window. Only one club has made an offer, which is still valid this Thursday.
Cristiano Ronaldo is preparing to stay at Manchester United this summer. Disillusioned with the idea of seeing the Champions League pass him by, the Portuguese striker dreamed of joining a club in the transfer window that could offer him the opportunity to shine, perhaps one last time, in the most prestigious of European competitions. Unless there is an incredible twist, CR7 will have to settle for the Europa League and the Premier League. After a bad start to the season for the Red Devils, things are improving even if the Portuguese is not necessarily part of Erik Ten Hag’s executives.

However, his departure was never really relevant, and the confidences of the media The Athletic confirm it. Indeed, when the transfer window is about to close, Cristiano Ronaldo has simply received only one offer throughout this summer. Certainly, discussions can take place, and his agent Jorge Mendes has had some, without there being any offers before a possible agreement. But the verdict is final. And the only club that actually made an offer to Manchester United is Al Hilal. The formation of Saudi Arabia, whose owner is Nawaf bin Faisal Al Saud, grandson of King Fahd, does not lack financial means.
The offer made would have been very generous with Manchester United, in order to buy a player who had only one year left on his contract, and who is still 37 years old. Similarly, an astronomical contract was offered to Cristiano Ronaldo. But despite this tempting proposal, the transfer was rejected by the Portuguese clan, who did not see themselves continuing their career in Saudi Arabia. Since then, CR7 has not found other opportunities, even if the sportsman passed in his eyes in front of the financier to pursue his career. Note that The Athletic specifies that the offer for the MU star still stands as long as the transfer market is open, but that in this case, no one is under any illusions and Cristiano Ronaldo should not agree to join the country of the Gulf in the next few hours.
