Man United complete signing of Portuguese superstar
Man United have made an official statement to confirm that the club have reached an agreement with Juventus to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo. Portugal international is ready to come back to Man United after 12 long years, bringing an end to a three-year spell in Juventus.
The 36-year-old forward is one of the greatest footballers to have ever played the game of football. His rivalry with Lionel Messi is a stuff of legends, with the pair establishing their place in footballing folklore.
Portugal international, in particular, is someone who can be classified as an all-time great for two teams, having first enjoyed oodles of success with the Red Devils before departing the Theatre of Dreams in 2009.
However, it is at the Spanish club where Ronaldo truly exploded, playing a pivotal role as Real Madrid enjoyed unprecedented success, including a remarkable three-peat of the Champions League.
Cristiano’s time at Santiago Bernabeu came to an end in 2018, when the attacker joined the Bianconeri, with whom he has amassed a fabulous tally of 101 goals and 22 assists in 134 games.
Man United keeping close tabs with England international
Man United is exploring signing Kieran Trippier before the summer transfer window closes. If the transfer materialises, it could happen deep into the late stages of the window, which will shut on August 31st, according to a report.
The Red Devils have surprised their supporters and the footballing world alike by bringing back Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus. Man United took up the chance on the Portuguese forward and signed him ahead of close rivals Man City.
However, the club might still dip into the market for another signing. The Norwegian manager wanted to sign a right-back in this transfer window after feeling short on that particular side.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka offers reliable displays on the flank, but the coach wanted an experienced footballer to provide cover and competition to the ex-Crystal Palace defender.
The English defender stood out among the footballers on the list Man United drew up, and the club opened discussions over a move with Atletico Madrid after the Euros.
Borussia Dortmund interested in signing Man United defender
Diogo Dalot is the subject of interest from Borussia Dortmund over a late move in the summer transfer window. The German giants have made a loan offer for the Portuguese right-back, who could be on his way out of Man United.
Portugal international joined Man United from Porto in the summer of 2018. Hailed as one of the most talented young Portuguese footballers at the time, Dalot also had an admirer in then coach Jose Mourinho.
However, Diogo has struggled to carve out a spot for himself at Man United under Jose Mourinho’s successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
