According to sources, Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who is rumored to be leaving the Italian club, is more likely to move to Manchester United rather than Real Madrid.
According to the Daily Mail, Italian outlet Tuttosport claims that the Los Blancos are more interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe to lead their attack.
Following Juve’s early exit from the Champions League, Ronaldo was harshly chastised, with Italian reports saying the 36-year-old misled his teammates.
Confusion reigned over his prospects, with some claiming he might be sacked by the Turin club only having one year left on his deal. He did, however, return to the Serie A with a hat-trick against Cagliari, and Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed that the club is pleased to have him.
According to recent sources, with Madrid involved in Mbappe, Manchester United has a greater chance of signing the striker. Even if a return to Old Trafford is more possible than a return to Real Madrid, United is expected to look elsewhere as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to rebuild his team into a title-challenging force.
Rather than proven stars, their transfer policy has appeared to concentrate on younger players who match Solskjaer’s counter-attacking style of play.
