In recent days, world football has been buzzing with the possibility of Ronaldo joining Atletico Madrid in this summer’s transfer window. The Portuguese superstar wants to leave MU and his agent is looking for a new club for CR7.
Ronaldo still does not know if he will leave MU or not
Even according to British media sources, Ronaldo is said to accept a salary reduction of about 30% to be able to return to Madrid.
Before the above information, Atletico Madrid fans gathered on social networks and began to use the hashtag #ContraCR7 (implied against CR7) to ask the management not to sign a contract with the former Real Madrid player, the team city rival.
Some people think that CR7 wearing Atletico Madrid shirt is disrespectful. Because the 37-year-old striker’s past with Real Madrid makes it almost impossible for him to appear in the colors of the Wanda Metropolitano home team.
Atletico Madrid fans protest against Ronaldo’s contract signing
Rojiblancos fans will have a hard time accepting Ronaldo as he contributed to two wins over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final in 2014 and 2017 during his Real Madrid days. Moreover, Atletico Madrid is also the rival in Spain that CR7 scores the most.
Earlier, on July 24, MU was said to be ready for CR7 to leave on loan to fulfill his desire to play in the Champions League, according to the Mirror. But in return, they want Ronaldo to extend for a year when his current contract expires next summer. With this plan, MU hopes Ronaldo can play in Europe’s top league in Manchester again if coach Erik ten Hag can lead the “Red Devils” to qualify for the Champions League next season.
The above proposal was made by MU in negotiations with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes. To date, Ronaldo and his agent have not yet responded to the request of the Manchester team.
