Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo is close to a move to Roma. Former Italian team player Angelo Di Livio said.
“I have confirmation from several sources that Roma is indeed trying to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. The Romans may announce his transfer on July 7, so that it will be the seventh day of the seventh month. Many players and many confidants are talking about it. In addition, I had the opportunity to talk to a close friend who works in television. He found out about the Ronaldo deal from a very important figure at Roma during lunch a few days ago,” Di Livio said.
Earlier, former Roma player Fabio Petruzzi revealed that the Roman club had some details of Ronaldo’s contract left to be negotiated, in particular the image rights involved.
It was reported that Ronaldo, 37, was unhappy with MU’s performance in the transfer market and could leave the team as he wants to win trophies next season. The Portuguese joined M in August 2021 and his contract with the club runs until June 30, 2023. Last season, the forward scored 24 goals in 39 games for the club, on his account three assists. His transfer fee is estimated at €30 million.
From 2018 to 2021, Ronaldo played in Italy for Juventus, becoming a two-time national champion.
In addition, he is a five-time winner of the Golden Ball, a five-time winner of the Champions League, as well as the 2016 European champion.
It should be added that the initiator of the invitation of the player is the head coach of the Italian club Jose Mourinho.
