Ronaldo has the opportunity to leave Manchester United

Currently, Cristiano Ronaldo is still under contract at Manchester United until 2023. However, there has been confusion about his future since last season.

Ronaldo is said to be able to leave Man United this summer. Because Manchester United did not play in the Champions League.

In addition, Ronaldo is also said to be threatened with the new coach of MU, Erik Ten Hag. CR7 is said to be incompatible with the Dutch coach’s playing style.

Several clubs have also been linked with Ronaldo. One of them is Real Madrid.

AS Roma Ready to Accommodate Ronaldo

Erik Ten Hag is said to be ready to keep Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United. CR7 is also ready to stay at Old Trafford.

However, there is still news that he could leave Manchester United this summer. From there, news emerged that AS Roma were interested in accommodating Ronaldo if he left Old Trafford.

This news was reported by La Repubblica . The report says Ronaldo is ready to find a new club but it will likely be difficult to find the right club for him.

Especially at the top European clubs. Because they are more focused on building a team with young players.

From there, Ronaldo was said to be looking for a club that could use his experience and leadership to achieve success. This is where the name Roma appears.

However, this dream has a problem, namely the issue of salary. But Ronaldo could have been persuaded by his agent, Jorge Mendes, to move to Rome because in Italy there is a big tax exemption.

But the report also mentions that there is another obstacle for AS Roma to realize Cristiano Ronaldo’s reunion with Jose Mourinho, namely the issue of financial fair play. This could make Ronaldo return to Sporting Lisbon.

Ten Hag Says About Ronaldo

Previously, Erik Ten Hag had talked about the future of Critiano Ronaldo at Manchester United. He said Ronaldo was still in his plans for next season.

“What can Ronaldo give to this team? A lot of goals, of course,” he told MUTV .

“I will first discuss this with Ronaldo before I discuss it with you [the media],” he said.

Antonio Rudiger has officially parted ways with Chelsea. Rudiger has agreed to join Real Madrid.

At the Santiago Bernabeu, Rudiger agreed to sign a four-year contract. Thus, he will wear the Los Blancos uniform until 2026.

Rudiger joined Chelsea from AS Roma in 2017. During his stay in London, he has developed into one of the best defenders in Europe.

Rudiger leaves Stamford Bridge with five major trophies. He won the FA Cup, Champions League, Europa League, European Super Cup and Club World Cup.

After Rudiger’s departure, Chelsea needed to enter the summer transfer window to find a replacement. There are several central defenders the Blues could consider.

Here are five centre-backs who could replace Antonio Rudiger at Chelsea.

Jules Kunde

Jules Kunde has emerged as a quality defender in La Liga. The Frenchman joined Sevilla in 2019 and is now their key player.

Chelsea actually almost got Kunde in the summer transfer window of 2021. However, the Blues failed to reach an agreement with Sevilla regarding the transfer price.

The Blues are reportedly eyeing Kounde again in the summer transfer market this year. Sevilla reportedly will not release the player for less than 65 million euros.

Josko Gvardiol

 

 

RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol is currently only 20 years old. He has featured regularly for the Bundesliga side after spending last season on loan at Dinamo Zagreb.

Although still young, Gvardiol became a fairly prominent player for Domenico Tedesco’s team. The 20-year-old has made 46 appearances, scoring two goals and providing three assists.

Chelsea became one of the teams that showed a strong interest in bringing him to the Premier League. He could be a long-term asset for Thomas Tuchel’s club.

Wesley Fofana

Leicester City brought in 19-year-old Wesley Fofana from Saint-Etienne in 2020. However, the young French player proved to be a good signing.

Fofana has good attributes as a central defender. He made regular appearances in his first time at the King Power Stadium, making 28 appearances in the Premier League.

Unfortunately, Fofana got a serious injury this season so he only appeared 12 times in all competitions this season. However, Fofana is reportedly on Chelsea’s radar.

Kalidou Koulibaly

Kalidou Koulibaly is one of the mainstays at the heart of the Napoli defense. He has played for the Partenopei since 2014 after signing from Genk.

Koulibaly has long been linked with a move to the Premier League. With his contract running out next year, the Senegal defender may be time to move to England.

In Serie A, Koulibaly is known as a strong and tough defender. At the age of 30, Koulibaly could be a short-term option for Chelsea.
