Borussia Dortmund have reportedly planned a shock move for Cristiano Ronaldo
At the conclusion of the 2016–17 campaign, the 37-year-old made it clear that he wanted to leave the Old Trafford club. The 2021–2022 Premier League season was not a good one for Manchester United, and as a result, the club qualified only for the Europa League. Ronaldo, however, wishes to participate in the Champions League. Despite being linked to numerous clubs since making public his desire to quit Manchester United, no team has yet made an offer for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. However, Manchester United had already stated that they had no intention of selling Ronaldo.
The rumors that Ronaldo would be sacrificed in Erik Ten Hag’s reorganization of Manchester United were widespread prior to the Dutch manager’s arrival. Ten Hag coached a team at Ajax that was primarily made up of young, energetic, and strong players; the same was expected at Old Trafford. Ronaldo’s chances of making Man United under Erik Ten Hag were minimal due to his advanced age. Analysts were surprised when Ten Hag said that he and Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to change the club’s position.
Reports from reliable sources inside the Old Trafford organization have surfaced as of late, suggesting that the club is open to offers for Ronaldo. This comes after Ronaldo stood firm in his decision to leave the Old Trafford club after only one season, with one year left on his contract. His agent, Jorge Mendes, has been making bold overtures to elite European teams in an attempt to broker a transfer. The player’s Portuguese agent reportedly visited with Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and PSG executives to urge them to make a bid. This report confirms that no team has made a bid for Cristiano Ronaldo as of the time of publication.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was heavily linked to Atletico Madrid, but his reported salary was too high for the team to afford. Despite rumors to the contrary, Bayern Munich has stated that they are not interested in signing the player. There has been no word from any other teams on whether or not they intend to make an offer for the player. With the prospect of playing in the Champions League dwindling, Ronaldo’s planned move from Manchester United became more precarious. When asked about the rumors concerning his future at Old Trafford, Cristiano Ronaldo has stayed silent despite the fact that the transfer window will close in a matter of weeks.
Meanwhile, CBS Sports says that Borussia Dortmund may contemplate a bid for the highly rated forward, Ronaldo, keeping his Champions League dreams alive. CBS Sports reports that after new addition Sebastian Haller was pulled out of the squad due to a testicular tumor, Dortmund is reevaluating its options. The German giants are looking to replace the injured Sebastian Haller, and reports indicate that Cristiano Ronaldo is on their radar. If Ronaldo joins Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid this summer, he will be playing in his fourth European League, having previously played in the English Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A.
