After an “explosive” interview with journalist Piers Morgan last week, Ronaldo considered a break with MU. Many sources indicate that he is ready to sign a 6-month contract with his former team Real Madrid in January 2023.
CR7 wants to find the place that has put his name on the world football superstar. However, at the age of 37, Ronaldo’s qualities no longer match the ambitions of the Spanish Royal team.
Real looks to the future
“I never intended to re-sign Ronaldo. Real is looking to the future,” coach Carlo Ancelotti said last year when asked about the possibility of signing Ronaldo.
Meanwhile, President Florentino Perez laughed and replied, “Cristiano Ronaldo? Once again? At the age of 38?” after receiving inquiries about CR7 reunion in 2023.
The reaction of coach Ancelotti and President Perez shows that the heads of Real are not interested in the plan to reunite Ronaldo. It is not difficult to realize Real’s long-term plan over the years. “Los Blancos” ignores blockbuster contracts with big names to focus on bringing in potential young players.
On the attack, the Royal Spanish team wants to focus on young targets but has confirmed the level of Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland. In many recent transfer periods, Real tried to convince Mbappe to play but failed.
But even if Mbappe refused, Real’s position would not be affected. “Los Blancos” is still the dream destination of many stars in the world. Center-back Antonio Rudiger affirmed Real as an “ice cream” in the world football village, alluding to many players coveting to wear the “Los Blancos” shirt.
The Spanish Royal team can focus on recruiting Haaland for the center position in the next two years. The Norwegian striker has emerged as one of the most effective strikers in the world at the moment when he plays for Man City. With Mbappe and Haaland, with available pieces like Federico Valverde, Aurelien Tchouameni or Eduardo Camavinga, Real aims to build a class team and maintain dominance in the next decade.
Of course, that is the story of the future. At the moment, Real still has absolute faith in Karim Benzema, the owner of the 2022 Golden Ball. The French striker has built a reputation with his teammates and coaching staff at the Bernabeu. In October, Benzema was said to continue to extend his contract with Real until June 2024. Experts believe that the French player still has a lot of motivation to play and dedicate to Real.
The fact that Benzema has firmly built his future at the Bernabeu makes the chance for Ronaldo to return to Real less and less. “Los Blancos” is afraid that the appearance of CR7 can cause many internal problems even when Ronaldo is only at the Bernabeu for 6 months.
Real can see what Ronaldo does with MU, also an old CR7 team in the past, to draw great lessons. Although there are many stars in the team, Real still shows impressive management ability. Solidarity has been the strength of the club for many years. At the Bernabeu, players with big egos quickly had to leave.
Ronaldo lost his way
Since Ronaldo conducted an interview with Piers Morgan, no team has really expressed its ambition to own CR7 in the team. On the night of November 20, Tiago Pinto, director of AS Roma, stated: “Ronaldo has never been an option with Roma, has never had contact or interest despite the rumors from the media.”
Jose Mourinho, head coach of Roma, shares agent Jorge Mendes with Ronaldo. However, the “Special One” could not support CR7 by picking up the old student to play in Serie A.
Besides Roma, Sporting Lisbon or Bayern Munich are other clubs that have been contacted by Ronaldo in recent times. However, the level of feasibility is also not high. In October, before Ronaldo did the interview, ESPN said that it was difficult for CR7 to leave MU in January 2023. The 37-year-old striker may have to wait until the summer of 2023 to find a new destination.
In a recent share, Ronaldo confirmed his rejection of an invitation to Saudi Arabia to play football with a contract worth £ 305 million. CR7 believes that he himself has not passed his peak and is capable of playing football in Europe. He expressed a view contrary to the analysis of public opinion.
Currently, Ronaldo wants to put all his focus on Portugal in the 2022 World Cup. The tournament in Qatar can become the perfect self-promotion and also an affirmation that CR7 is not out of time if he plays. good.
