Cristiano Ronaldo is pushing to leave Manchester United this summer due to his desire to play Champions League next season and preserve his goalscoring record.
However, options are starting to look short for the 37-year-old with the likes of Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich not interested in the transfer.
Interestingly, Javier Tebas, the La Liga president, has expressed his desire to have Cristiano Ronaldo back in Spain: “I would like to see Cristiano in La Liga again. Whether it is feasible or not for Atletico Madrid, I do not know.
“There would have to be some player departures if they wanted to [sign him]. To sign a player of that level, you must make room [financially].”
Meanwhile, speaking to El Partidazo de COPE, Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo said: “I don’t know who invented the Cristiano story.
“But the whole thing is definitely not true. It’s practically impossible for Cristiano Ronaldo to come to Atletico Madrid.”
The Portuguese and his agent Jorge Mendes met with Richard Arnold and Erik ten Hag at Carrington on Tuesday. The Red Devils insist that he player is not for sale.
