Cristiano Ronaldo could make a fairytale return to Sporting CP, after making it clear that he wants to leave Manchester United.
The operation is not simple, but the Lisbon club and Jorge Mendes, the player’s agent, are looking for a way to make it happen.
Sporting CP have been one of the names mentioned as a possible destination ever since he stated his desire to leave United.
Throughout the summer, Cristiano Ronaldo has always known that his former club were willing to make an effort to bring the striker back.
Mendes has tried to offer him around Europe, to clubs like Atletico Madrid among others, but there has been no side willing to match his lofty wage demands.
Ronaldo wanted a return to Real Madrid, a team that in the summer of 2021 closed the door on him when he was looking for a way out of his situation at Juventus. Yet that too never materialised.
Chelsea, Marseille, Napoli and Milan are the options that have appeared recently, but Sporting are still hopeful. While they can’t please him financially, they can do it sentimentally.
Right now, the option for Cristiano to play and being happy weighs more than facing another season full of tension at Old Trafford.
