Cristiano Ronaldo makes decision on Man Utd return as Juventus star’s ‘priority emerges’

Published

on

Cristiano Ronaldo could be nearing the Juventus exit door after three seasons in Turin.

The most recent of which has been bereft of the kind of domestic success ‘the Old Lady’ have grown accustomed to. 

Ronaldo has been touted for a remarkable return to the club that saw him first show signs of world class ability in Manchester United. 

Inter Milan being crowned Serie A champions ensured Juventus failed to win their tenth league title in a row, with Ronaldo’s side only securing their place in next season’s Champions League on the final day of the campaign. 

Such underwhelming results are clearly not tolerated by those at the top of the Juve hierarchy, who saw enough of club legend Andrea Pirlo in a managerial capacity and parted ways with the Italian shortly after the season’s end. 

Despite taking action immediately and replacing Pirlo with Massimiliano Allegri, Ronaldo appears to still be considering a move away. 

Allegri has already enjoyed one hugely successful stint at the club, which saw him win five successive league titles, four Coppa Italias as well as reaching the Champions League final twice – undeniably the kind of CV any player would take sit up and take notice of. 

However, it may be a case of too little too late as Ronaldo mulls over where his future lies in terms of next season. 

The five-time Balon D’or winner was adamant he would leave should Juve have failed to qualify for the Champions League, but even now that they have rumours suggest the star is unconvinced. 

With just one year left on his deal in Turin, Juve are staring down the barrel of the daunting prospect of having to choose between cashing in on their star man this summer, or face losing him for free next year. 

Recent reports suggest that Ronaldo sees a return to Manchester United as his ‘priority’, in a transfer that would undoubtedly spark headlines throughout the world of football. 

Even in a season that has seen Juventus struggle, Ronaldo’s brilliance has shone through, with the former Real Madrid man netting 29 goals in 33 Serie A appearances.  

That figure was enough to secure him the Capocannoniere, the award given to the division’s top scorer. 

Ronaldo was five goals ahead of his nearest competitor in Inter’s Romelu Lukaku, coincidentally also formerly of Manchester United.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
