La Repubblica, which previously stated that Ronaldo wanted to quit Manchester United, is now claiming that the 37-year-return old’s to Sporting is being worked on by the superstar’s agent Jorge Mendes. 19 years after leaving the team to join Man United, the striker has already granted his blessing for a reunion with the legendary Portuguese club.
The Man United striker has asked to leave his current club as the Portugal international wants to play Champions League football and missed the entirety of United’s pre-season tour. The 37-year-old has also been left out of the Premier League side’s squad for their next pre-season match with Atletico Madrid tomorrow as Ronaldo pushes for a move away from Old Trafford.
Numerous elite clubs in Europe received offers for Ronaldo this summer, but none were interested in signing the superstar. The striker now appears to have two choices: either stay at Man United or sign with Sporting CP to compete in the Champions League.
According to La Repubblica, the negotiations for a transfer to the latter are difficult, but a transfer that was previously just a hunch is now becoming shape. Ronaldo is currently awaiting a breakthrough in the transfer, and once that occurs, his return to the club where it all began should move closer to realization.
