On Saturday, The Times reported that Ronaldo has asked United to allow him to depart if a satisfactory offer arrives.
The above comes after The Athletic also claimed that Boehly and Mendes, who represents the Portugal international, had met and discussed the idea of a switch to west London this transfer window.
Ronaldo’s desire to continue competing in the Champions League is said to be the main reason behind his decision to request a transfer, with Erik ten Hag’s side set to play in the Europa League in the upcoming season following their sixth-placed finished last term.
First Signing of Ten Hag Era
It’s not all doom and gloom at Old Trafford and they are VERY close to making their first signing under Erik ten Hag.
Manchester United are set to announce the €15m (£13m) signing of 22-year-old Feyenoord and Netherlands full-back Tryell Malacia.
The player had a medical yesterday and United could confirm the signing later today.
Dembele to remain at Barcelona
Free agent Ousmane Dembele could be about to head back to Barcelona just days after being released by the club.
After being signed by Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth up to £124.9m in 2017, Dembele’s contract expired at Camp Nou last week. However, the Daily Mail has claimed that Dembele could agree terms to head back to Catalonia.
Gunners eye Dybala
Arsenal have reportedly not given up hope of luring Paulo Dybala to the Premier League, according to a new report.
Dybala is a free agent this summer after running his deal down at Juventus, but it has seemed as though he was closing in on a lucrative switch to Inter Milan. However, La Repubblica, via GIFN, claims that an agreement between Dybala and Inter is ‘not close’.
Where will Martinez go?
Lisandro Martinez has told Ajax he wants to move to the Premier League – but doesn’t know where to head.
Man Utd are keen but Arsenal are also in the race and the centre-half is intrigued by both projects, leaving him with a decision to make, reports Sky Sports.
