The Portuguese leaving Juventus returns to Old Trafford, where he had played from 2003 to 2009: after the reversal of the transfer market in the Manchester derby with the City, the telenovela ends
At 17.52 Italian, Manchester United closed the telenovela Cristiano Ronaldo announcing the return to Old Trafford of CR7 with a post on the official profile of the Red Devils: “Welcome home”, welcome back home.
The 37-year-old Portuguese, leaving Juve, exploded into football that counts precisely with United from 2003 to 2009: winning the 2007-08 Champions League, the 2008 Club World Cup, as well as three Premier Leagues, a Cup of England, a Community Shield and twice the League Cup, with the Ballon d’Or and the Fifa World Player 2008, a title of top scorer in the Premier and one in the Champions League.
All in 48 hours
It was 48 hours of fire that changed Cristiano Ronaldo’s future: on Wednesday evening the arrival in Turin of his agent Jorge Mendes, summoned the next day by Juventus who made it clear in the meeting that he would not let him leave at no cost while CR7 communicated to Allegri (who spoke about it at the press conference) that he considered his experience at Juventus closed. Yesterday at lunchtime Mendes left in search of the solution, identified by all in Manchester City in search of a blow after Harry Kane’s stay at Tottenhan. Today, however, the scenario has been reversed: the words of Guardiola on the one hand and those of Solskjaer on the other have anticipated for Ronaldo the closing of the doors of the City and the opening of those of the return to United. The Citizens have made it known that they have slipped away, while the Red Devils have gone to close with the Juventus management.
