The Real Madrid talisman is tipped for a move away from the Spanish capital after failing to agree on terms with new manager Rafael Benitez. French Champions Paris Saint-Germain, English giants Manchester United and defending English Champions Chelsea are in a battle to sign the Portuguese superstar only if the Spanish club decides to offload the club’s all-time leading goal scorer.
We are hearing the same rumors each and every transfer window, but Cristiano’s love towards the Madrid club seems too strong as he did not ask for any transfers so far. Cristiano Ronaldo was against the decision to sack former manager Carlo Ancelotti and has personal disagreements with new coach Rafa Benitez from the very beginning. Rafa Benitez had very harsh words for Cristiano Ronaldo when he was managing Liverpool. At that time, Ronaldo was playing for Manchester United. Liverpool and United pose a very strong rivalry that made the comments so usual that time, but the things did not improve after they started to work together for Real Madrid.
Still Ronaldo and Benitez did not enjoy a sweet relationship and that fuels the rumors. Real Madrid should sack Rafael Benitez if they want their all-time leading goal scorer to retire at the Santiago Bernabeu and if they think reverse they should sell Cristiano Ronaldo. With three top clubs of Europe fighting each other, it will be very easy for Real Madrid to get a record fee for the Portuguese forward.
Which club will be the better for Cristiano Ronaldo if traded from Real Madrid? Let’s start it from English giants Manchester United:
The former owners of Cristiano Ronaldo are the reason for everything that he has now and are always monitoring the forward’s situation at the Spanish Capital. United are ready to pounce at any given chance who had no of offers already refined by the Spanish giants. In the last two years, even the great Sir Alex Ferguson tried to persuade Ronaldo to return to the Old Trafford but the player did not consider a move.
But the old SAF days are long gone now at the Old Trafford with Dutch man Louis van Gaal dictating the proceedings at Manchester United. Ronaldo always has emotional attachments with his former club, but the recent changes with the Red Devils may prove to be a stumbling block. LVG preferred to sign Gareth Bale in the summer over the aging Cristiano Ronaldo which clearly showed his intentions. Also, the La Decima famous and Cristiano Ronaldo’s closest friend Angel di Maria failed to impress the Old Trafford crowd.
LVG was blamed for Di Maria’s failure and Cristiano Ronaldo may also face the same fate. Though the fans still in love with the Portuguese, the player might prefer the same from the staff and the authorities. Technically, Ronaldo’s intelligence on the field will bring the old glory days back to the Old Trafford. But, Ronaldo will need something other than fans’ support to re-join his former team and shine in the famous Red jersey once again.
The unbeatable Champions of Ligue 1 are always behind the Portuguese but did not make a strong impression until last season. But, the situation has changed a lot in the recent days after the Champions League group stage clash with Real Madrid. PSG produced an impressive display which made Cristiano Ronaldo to congratulate PSG manager Laurent Blanc and it is reported that Ronaldo told Blanc that he wants to play for him. Is this enough to declare PSG as the best place for Ronaldo after Real Madrid? No, certainly not.
Angel di maria, the fresh comer at PSG will aid the move for sure, but it will be Zlatan Ibrahimovic who can alter the decisions. It’s impossible to have the two giant players together at the same team considering the personal disagreements between them. Zlatan is very well known for his aggressive nature and it may affect Ronaldo’s decision. Wherever he goes, Ronald will ask for the NO.1 role and he may not get it until Zlatan Ibrahimovic plays for PSG.
PSG play a very attractive counter-attacking display which will tempt Ronaldo for a move and he may want to experience a new level of football as he has not played in France yet.
The defending EPL champions suddenly rose as the leaders in the chase. Chelsea are in serious trouble this season as they lost 7 out of their 13 games in the league so far, leaving them in the 15th position. Also, the relationship inside the dressing room is under severe monitoring. It is reported that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is in the discussion about selling the club’s best player Eden Hazard after the Belgian lost his form recently. Eden Hazard is always a wanted figure at the Santiago Bernabeu and if the reports are true then there may be a swap deal is possible with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is no new to the EPL as he has a very good six years experience in England and in that period he has won everything that is possible to win. Both the Portuguese want a reunion and they have expressed that publicly. Club owner Roman Abramovich is ready to splash out on a player like Cristiano Ronaldo who will certainly improve the club’s image so it all looks so simple for Chelsea from one end.
On the other hand, the move is impossible considering the player’s love towards Manchester United. But, if he moves to Chelsea he will surely do better as he knew Jose Mourinho well and good. The Portuguese tactician has successfully transformed Cristiano Ronaldo as a goal scoring machine when he managed Real Madrid. The only hurdle that Chelsea face is they must convince Ronaldo to play at the Stamford Bridge.
Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid seems possible more than ever, but if he decides to spend the last stages of his career with more peace he will certainly choose Paris Saint-Germain. If not, it will either be one of the English clubs who convince the player. Cristiano Ronaldo to EPL: It’s not about the destination, it’s about the PERSONAL satisfaction.
