Sporting CP manager breaks silence on Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo transfer links

October 26, 2022

Man United striker Ronaldo has been linked with a move back to Sporting.

Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim has admitted that Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo returning to the club is a “dream” but they can’t afford his wages.

The saga surrounding the 37-year-old has intensified since Erik ten Hag took over at Old Trafford. Ronaldo has found playing time hard to come by despite finishing as the club’s top goalscorer last season.

In the summer, Ronaldo handed in a transfer request as he looked to swap United for a Champions League club, however, nothing came to fruition and he remained in Manchester. He has made eight Premier League appearances this season but has been handed just two starts.
