Ronaldo snubbed again in bid to flee Man Utd – media – RT Sport News
Cristiano Ronaldo has been turned down by two of Italy’s top teams, according to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner told Manchester United at the start of the summer that he wanted to leave the club due to their lack of Champions League football and ordered them to receive reasonable offers for him.
Although these were not received, Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes offered his biggest client to a number of continental giants such as Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Atletico. Madrid – all of whom turned him down.
With the transfer window closing on August 31, it now looks like the 37-year-old may have to honor the two-year contract he signed with the Red Devils last summer when he joined them. from Juventus.
With the list of Ronaldo suitors shrinking by the day, it has now been claimed that Juve’s Serie A rivals in the fashion capital Milan have also passed up the chance to sign the superstar forward.
« BOOM! Cristiano Ronaldo was offered to Inter and Milan: rejected! » informed Palmeri.

Later on Sunday, in the fall of a humble 4-0 loss to Brentford where Ronaldo appeared to snub Erik Ten Hag for a handshake and instructions from his assistant coach Steve McLaren to applaud traveling United fans, the Mancunians have also denied the rumors that the Portuguese will have his contract terminated.
« There is no change in the position of the club » a club spokesperson confirmed via Sky Sports, underlining United’s insistence that Ronaldo is not for sale and is still part of Ten Hag’s plans.
Blasting his charges for their sluggish display on Saturday and apologizing to United fans for the second defeat in two games of the new campaign, Ten Hag ordered his underperforming charges to report to training on their day off.
In 30C (86F) heat, the Dutchman would have made each of them cover the 13.8 kilometers (8.5 miles) more than Brentford did on Saturday.
Sky Sports said Ten Hag would be « horrified » by United’s performance levels and made it clear to the players that they let everyone down.
That pampered players should cross « Brick wall » when they don the iconic red shirt is non-negotiable, according to the same report – as well as revealing a sense at senior level at the club that United are not ready to challenge for the Champions League and Premier League anytime soon five years even with an immediate recruitment policy in place.
When United take on bitter rivals Liverpool – widely regarded as the country’s best team alongside defending champions Manchester City – in their next outing, the distance between Ten Hag’s men and the top flight could be further stretched with a another beating like the 5-0 and 4-0 home and away last season.
