The most important sports newspaper in Portugal, ‘A Bola’, published on Wednesday in their first page that Real Madrid will receive a huge offer for Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer. It would be the most expensive transfer in the history, with €180M. The source doesn’t say anything about the team but the offer would come from China, England or France.
Cristiano Ronaldo is on his way of winning the fifth Golden Ball, so he will have the same awards as Leo Messi. The Portuguese star has completed one of the best seasons in his career, with two goals in the Champions League final, three in the semi-finals and five in the quarter-finals. In 2016, he was also able to win both the Champions League and the Euro with Portugal.
With all these amazing numbers and despite his age -he’s 32 years old-, some big teams would like to sign him for the next season. According to the Portuguese newspaper, this offer would come from England, France or China. Although in the article, the journalist doesn’t say anything about a clubs, these could be PSG or Manchester United.
PSG boss, Al-Khelaifi, has always kept a really good relationship with the Portuguese star. He tried to sign him several times, but he couldn’t make it and he finally decided to sign Jesé Rodríguez, a big mistake for the club. Another option could be Manchester United, his former club, after failing to sign Antoine Griezmann, who will remain one more year at Atlético Madrid.
The option from China sounds very unlikely, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo and his eager of winning more trophies. He could get a superb economic offer, but the Portuguese doesn’t need the money, but the trophies. Besides, Cristiano Ronaldo said several times that he would like to retire from football at Real Madrid and it’s very unlikely that Florentino Pérez would listen any offer for the Portuguese said.
