Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo is allegedly impressed by Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone’s readiness to collaborate with him.
Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United is uncertain, as stated by Fabrizio Romano in his exclusive CaughtOffside piece on Substack, and he could end up playing for their local rivals.
According to the Times, Ronaldo is open to the notion of returning to Madrid, with Simeone’s involvement appearing to be crucial at the moment.
Still, one imagines this could be a difficult transaction for Atletico to complete due to the financial implications, with the Rojiblancos lacking the riches of Real Madrid or Barcelona.
With Luis Suarez departing Atletico this summer, a player like Ronaldo up front may provide the team with more options.
According to the Times, Antoine Griezmann might quit the Metropolitano to assist bankroll a deal for Ronaldo.
