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 easy, 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 since he expressed his desire to leave United.
Cristiano Ronaldo has always known throughout the summer that his former club were willing to make an effort to bring the striker back.
Mendes tried to offer him around Europe, including to clubs such as Atletico Madrid, but there was no side willing to meet his high wage demands.
Ronaldo wanted to return to Real Madrid, the team that closed the door on him in the summer of 2021 as he looked for a way out of his situation at Juventus. However, this also never materialized.
Chelsea, Marseille, Napoli and Milan are options that have emerged recently, but Sporting still have hope. While they can’t please him financially, they can do it sentimentally.
Right now, for Cristiano, being able to play and be happy is more important than facing another season full of tension at Old Trafford.
