Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a number of teams after requesting a transfer away from Manchester United following the club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s son has perhaps provided a significant hint about the Portuguese forward’s future.
The striker made an unexpected request to leave Manchester United earlier this summer, citing the club’s lack of Champions League plays as a major factor for his desire to depart Old Trafford.
A lot of clubs have been linked with a transfer for Ronaldo since then. Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with a summer move for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. Surprisingly, Atletico Madrid has been connected with his services. According to reports in Spain, Diego Simeone is seeking to duplicate Los Rojiblancos’ prior success by recruiting an experienced forward in former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
Ronaldo’s youngest son Mateo, on the other hand, appears to have thrown a significant signal about a possible move to the Santiago Bernabeu rather than Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano. Ronaldo’s children accompanied long-term partner Georgina Rodriguez to a Rosalia concert at the WiZink Center in Madrid, according to a video provided by TikTok user @Morong10.
Mateo’s clothing sparked interest since the child chose to wear a Real Madrid jersey to the show. Of course, Ronaldo had a tremendously successful nine-year career with the Spanish giants.
He appeared in 436 games for Real Madrid over nine seasons, scoring 446 goals and helping the club win four Champions League titles and two La Liga titles.
The 37-year-old has frequently proclaimed his love for Real Madrid, claiming that he misses the Spanish city more than Manchester. “Madrid is a city that marked me a lot, not only on football but also on a personal level,” he remarked in 2019 when playing for Juventus. It was the club that left an impression on me. I spent nine years with Real Madrid and have a special affection for the club.”
“I miss both of them, but Madrid is where I spent the most time; my children and my girl were reared here.” “I miss Madrid more than I miss Manchester,” he added.
In the summer of 2018, Ronaldo moved to Juventus for a reported £99 million. He stayed with the Italian club for three years but failed to lead them to Champions League victory, so he left last summer to complete an emotional reunion with United.
He scored 24 goals in his first season back at Old Trafford, but despite a good personal season, he suffered alongside his teammates as United finished sixth under Ralf Rangnick, who replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer mid-season.
Erik ten Hag, the new manager, has already stated that Ronaldo will remain at the club. “I am well informed that he also has an alternative, eh?” he remarked. Yes, he may stay beyond this season, but to be honest, I signed here for three years, but football is also a short-term game. We have to win right now. So I don’t plan too far ahead.
“I have a strategy; it’s a process; it takes time; but in the end, we have to ensure that there is a winning team from the start.”
