"La Repubblica" reports that Cristiano Ronaldo, who could leave Man Utd, has offers to return to Sporting Lisbon in Portugal and also to Roma.
where his compatriot Jose Mourinho is the manager.
The fact that Man Utd have failed to qualify for the Champions League has led to talk of Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Old Trafford, despite the Portuguese trying to put those rumours to bed.
“I was happy, of course, to be back in a club that really raised my career, so it was unbelievable." I was, and I’m still very happy to be here. The records come naturally. I’m still motivated to just keep on working hard. And, of course, Man Utd and my teammates helped me all the time, "Cristiano Ronaldo said.
In Italy, in the newspaper 'La Repubblica’, to be precise, they say that the Portuguese star says it is fundamental he is playing in the Champions League, a competition in which he is the top scorer ever.
In order to stay in the Champions League, he will have to move. Sporting Lisbon are one of those interested. They will try and bring back the player after Ronaldo started his career with the team from Lisbon before joining Man Utd.
The Manchester United striker has a contract until June 2023 and the club will not put many obstacles in his way if he decides to leave. The other option for him is to go to Serie A side Roma, where Jose Mourinho is the manager.
However, at Roma, he would also be without the Champions League. Like Man Utd, they will also play in the Europa League next term. The Italians won the Conference League last season and it remains to be seen whether Cristiano Ronaldo and Mourinho will be reunited at Roma after their time together at Real Madrid.
