Cristiano Ronaldo Back to Manchester Classic T-Shirt

The Portuguese is claimed to have requested to be on the bench for Juventus’ Serie A season opener against Udinese on Sunday although he came on to replace Alvaro Morata after an hour of play.

Fabrizio Romano said pre-match on Twitter: “He’s NOT starting – it was a precise request from Cristiano because he hopes to find a solution on the market in the next days. But Juventus have received NO official bids yet for Cristiano.”.

Cristiano Ronaldo Back to Manchester Classic T-Shirt

With Real Madrid and Ronaldo both having shut down suggestions of a Bernabeu return and Paris Saint-Germain having already spent big this summer, bringing Lionel Messi to Paris from Barcelona, there are few possible destinations if Ronaldo is to indeed make a move.

Even though signing Tottenham’s Harry Kane appears less and less likely, a move to United’s rivals Manchester City surely is not feasible for Ronaldo given his connections with the Red Devils.

Though on the face of it, United are flush with attackers already, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did say earlier in the summer he would be willing to sign a new centre-forward to rival Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial up top.

He may still think that way after the Trending t-shirt Frenchman struggled in Sunday’s Premier League draw at Southampton. With no Cavani on the bench, neither Jadon Sancho or Jesse Lingard could offer the cutting edge needed from the reserves to unlock the Saints.

And with Ronaldo eager for another new challenge, it may be the ideal time for a United reunion, with Solskjaer desperate to bring a first title back to Old Trafford since 2013.

Speaking back in 2014, Ronaldo made clear his wish to play in Manchester once more, saying: “I love Manchester. Everyone knows that. Manchester is in my heart. The supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.”.

It has been suggested Juventus would want ₤ 25million to part ways with Ronaldo a year before the expiry of his contract and he would naturally require a huge – probably team-high and even league-high – salary but even at 36 years old, and turning 37 in February, he has proven he still has immense worth to whomever he plays for.
