Fabrizio Romano dismisses Real Madrid links to Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United future appears to heading towards an exit for the Portuguese superstar.

The 37-year-old confirmed his intention to leave Old Trafford this summer, with the former Real Madrid hitman linked with a host of European sides, after stating his desire to play in the Champions League.

Ronaldo has only featured sporadically for United in recent weeks and his relationship with the club has deteriorated rapidly ahead of the World Cup.

The situation was plunged into more controversy following Ronaldo’s decision to slam head coach Erik ten Hag, and the club’s hierarchy, in an explosive interview with Piers Morgan last week.

Los Blancos had been linked with a sensational deal to bring him back to Madrid, on a six month deal in January, following an injury to Karim Benzema.

However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano stated in his exclusive column for Caught Offside that a deal is not being considered by Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti has consistently stated his desire to build for the future with the experienced Italian coach hinting at his reluctance to bring in new players in the mid season window.

Ronaldo’s situation in Manchester looks unresolvable with another former team, in Sporting Lisbon, considering a move, alongside Premier League rivals Chelsea.

  1. Thats a damn shame. Ronaldo isnt bad, he just isnt happy and is playing in a wreck of a team.
    He guarantees goals but I guess teams priority is to run Benzema into the ground untill he cant walk anymore and work reactively instead of proactively.
    If Benzema and Ronaldo shared time it would be truly amazing but Ronaldo maybe isnt keen on that. He needs to realize his age.

    1. In fact, if a deal could be arranged where man utd retains a percentage of salary, it would be a very good deal.
      CR is an idol for many in dressing room as well as a lot of fans still adore him.
      It would truly be a proper football deal with two happy sides.

      But of course, it makes too much sense for Perez to pull the trigger. We love the kinds of deals where we buy already retired players and prospects we dont bother to develop, such as Jovic.

  2. its a shame for real to let cr7 back to Santiago
    the guy is already out of age
    lets considered on a striker but not ronaldo
    cr cannot play as a young boy though he is finasher. but he can fight any more
