Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to believe the reports leading his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester City.
Reports emerged this week claiming Ronaldo is considering dumping Juventus for Man City this summer.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Jorges Mendes, Ronaldo’s agent, has held talks with Manchester City over a potential move that will see his 36-year-old client to Etihad.
The transfer guru holds that City are interested in signing the former Manchester United forward but are only willing to sign him as a free agent.
Juventus value the five-time Ballon d’Or winner at £25million and the Portuguese forward, who has since been criticised regularly by the majority of United fanbase, will run out of contract at the end of next season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rubbishes reports leading Cristiano Ronaldo to Man City A Norwegian journalist Arilas Ould-Saada, who works at VGTV, asked Solskjaer about the speculation of Ronaldo to Manchester City, the Man United boss was quick to rubbish the reports.
Solskjaer on Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester City rumours: “I do not read newspapers. I know how much nonsense is written there, anyway.”
A couple of months ago, some reports started linking Sergio Aguero to Manchester United. The Argentine, who spent the majority of his playing career at Man City.
Solskjaer, who was looking at signing a top forward, was asked if United would show interest in the City legend, but the Norwegian boss said it doesn’t look professional for a player to leave a club to join his team’s direct rivals.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said of Sergio Aguero rumours then: “I know we’re professional, but when you play for Man United, you don’t go to Man City.”
He is an immense fan of the club since 2005. Miracle wonders where Man United would have ranked in the Premier League history if Sir Alex Ferguson wasn’t given enough time to rebuild the team.
