The Spanish newspaper “AS” reports the sensational news that Cristiano Ronaldo will go to Atlético Madrid. As they write, the Portuguese managed to convince Diego Simeone, the coach of Atlético, to buy him from Manchester United. Given that Ronaldo played for Real Madrid and is not exactly the prototype of the player Simeone is looking for, this information should be taken with a grain of salt.
The Portuguese striker reportedly expressed his desire to leave Manchester United after the arrival of the new coach, the Dutchman Erik ten Haag. Ronaldo, who almost never presses the opponent’s back line, is not in the plan for The Hague, who want maximum engagement from all their players on the field.
“AS” also wrote that Cristiano Ronaldo will move to Bayern and replace Robert Lewandowski, but the German club did not show too much interest in him. Ronaldo’s age, the huge salary and the fact that he is slowly not fitting into the postulates of modern football are factors that make it very difficult for him to leave Manchester.
