Speaking about what Cristiano Ronaldo said when he tried to talk to him about his future, Luis Nani said: “When he’s on vacation he doesn’t answer the phone to anybody.
“I tried to talk to him, but he said: ‘I’m so busy now, we’ll talk soon’. I hope (he stays). He’s an important player and a player who always makes a difference.
“I hope he’s in a good mood to help the club, so hopefully.”
Ronaldo has refused to make a public statement about his Man United future, causing him to be linked to a lot of clubs.
The Portuguese forward is reportedly frustrated at having taken a pay cut from United and the lack of Champions League football this season at Old Trafford. Erik ten Hag, however, has insisted that Ronaldo remains in his plans and he doesn’t want to sell him.
Moreover, Cristiano Ronaldo has not openly shut transfer news linking with a move away from Man United recently with so many media houses reporting that his agent is pushing for him to join the likes of Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
Although the 37-year-old was quick to thrash a Portuguese media page suggesting that he is considering a loan move to Sporting Lisbon from Man United this number. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner quickly responded with ‘fake’ under the comments section of the post. Probably, Sporting is not one of the clubs Cristiano is expecting to end up with should he leave Man United this summer.
In other news, there are speculations that his agent Jorge Mendes has convinced Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone to sign Cristiano Ronaldo for the club this summer and it could be a matter of time before something official starts happening.
