Cristiano Ronaldo has made a revelation about his transfer window. The Portuguese Manchester United striker explains that he declined an interest… from Manchester City.
Erik ten Hag, Wayne Rooney… Cristiano Ronaldo took out the sulfateuse from the newspaper The Sun. Very critical of his current Manchester United coach and the former Red Devils striker, the Portuguese star returned at length to his situation with the English club, which he does not hesitate to charge for his constant decline. A return to Old Trafford sealed in August 2021 for the sum of 17 million euros, from Juventus Turin, which could never have been concluded according to the own words of the native of Funchal, under contract until June 2023 ( + one year optional).
“I followed my heart”
In this interview with journalist Piers Morgan, “CR7” reveals that he said no to the covetousness… of Manchester City, on the advice of a certain Sir Alex Ferguson, who was his manager during his first successful stint at Manchester United between 2003 and 2009. “I followed my heart. He (Sir Alex) said to me, ‘It’s impossible for you to come to Manchester City’, and I said, ‘OK, boss.’ And to continue on the Scot: “He knows better than anyone that the club is not on the path it deserves to be. He knows. Everyone knows. People who don’t see that… It’s because they don’t want to see, they’re blind.”

The former glory of Real Madrid may now regret his return to MU, especially since this 2022-2023 season is not going very well for the one who has won the Ballon d’Or five times. Scorer only three times in sixteen appearances in all competitions, Cristiano Ronaldo has only found the net once in the Premier League. Tenured only four times in the league, the former Turinese did not participate in the victorious trip to Fulham on Sunday (2-1, 16th day).
