Disturbing transfer rumours linking Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester City continue to gather pace.
Di Marzio reports there are talks ongoing between parties and there is a chance the vomit-inducing move could happen before the transfer deadline.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be asked for his thoughts on the move if it happens, but he has already shown what he thinks, with comments made earlier this year.
Ole knows what it means
Solskjaer let his thoughts be known when silly rumours linking Sergio Aguero to Manchester United surfaced earlier this year.
Quoted by Goal, Solskjaer said: “When I played for Man Utd, if a rival club tried to sign me, and I had gone, well where’s the loyalty?
“Loyalty is one of the values I really, really put highly.
“It’s not for me. I know we’re professionals, but when you play for Man Utd you don’t go to Man City. We’ve had examples of that and I didn’t really agree with it.
“I won’t name names but you all know who I mean. Enough said.”
Carlos Tevez infamously signed for City after a successful stint with Manchester United.
Peter Schmeichel also had a very ill-advised stint at the club, while Owen Hargreaves also signed with City.
Hopefully common sense will prevail when it comes to Ronaldo. Solskjaer played alongside the attacker while he was at United, and will no doubt hope he has the common sense to snub a move to the blue side.
