Why Ronaldo and United Are Bashing Heads…


CR7 and Manchester United seem to be bashing heads over the 37-year-olds’ future. What could be the best outcome for both? Catch the debate  by clicking on the podcast player below!

A fairytale return that ended up in a sticky situation, Cristiano Ronaldo has not changed his stance on his future. The Portuguese legend returned to Manchester in a move that took the world by storm, however that talking point has taken a turn for the worst. CR7 wants out. He has made this very clear and handed in a transfer request before the Mid-year transfer window. Ronaldo probably thought that he would have his pick of Champions League sides, but instead what he has received is a complete dismantling of his status in world football in the space of these two months. Unfortunately for Ronaldo, being rejected by a handful of clubs has been the case and Manchester United are adamant that the 37-year-old is not for sale. Where will Ronaldo end up? After all, a contract is a contract and it is starting to look like he will have to play out his time at Old Trafford.
