Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain had the chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo last summer. But both the club turned down the chance of signing the Portuguese. A report by La Repubblica journalist Emanuele Gamba claims that.
Cristiano Ronald’s future is in the centre of attention in the last few days as Juventus was knocked out of the Champions League by Porto. Juventus have been the victims of three giant killings in a row. In 2018-19 they lost to Ajax in the quarterfinal. Last season they were beaten by Lyon and this season Porto.
Juventus is also not having a great time in the domestic league as well. They are now 3rd in the table 10 points behind the leaders’ Inter Milan. After winning 9 straight Serie A titles win this can be the first season when they lose the title.
In this current circumstance, Ronaldo can leave the club next summer. His agent Jorge Mendes has offered him to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain. But both the clubs denied to sign him.
Emanuele Gamba told, “Will Ronaldo go away? I think the only time there was a chance that he would leave was last summer. I think his staff moved in that direction, and (Jorge) Mendes moved to see if there was any (interest).”
“Essentially, Mendes had urged Man Utd and PSG (to sign Ronaldo), who both said ‘no’.”
It will be a question to see where the Portuguese go if he leaves the Italian side next summer.
