La Liga giants Real Madrid have no interest in signing Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the January transfer window, Spanish outlet Marca has claimed (via Metro).Cristiano Ronaldo recently had a revealing chat with his friend Piers Morgan, sharing his thoughts about Manchester United’s manager and their owners.
In the two-part interview, which was released last week, Ronaldo admitted that he had no respect for Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag and also criticized the Glazers family.It has been reported that the Red Devils are now contemplating terminating Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract in the wake of his explosive interview. The former Real Madrid man still has seven months remaining on his current £500,000-a-week deal.
Ronaldo’s departure from Old Trafford looks imminent, but a reunion with Los Blancos seems unlikely. According to the aforementioned report, Real Madrid passed up the opportunity to sign their record goalscorer in the summer and are set to do so again this winter.
The Whites’ campaign has been hampered by Karim Benzema’s niggling injury concerns, but the club are reportedly determined to stick by the 2022 Ballon d’Or winner for two more seasons.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored only thrice in 16 games for Manchester United this season, spent nine fruitful years in the Spanish capital. Between 2009 and 2018, Ronaldo scored 450 goals for Madrid in 438 appearances, winning four Champions League trophies and two La Liga titles, amongst other honors.
