Corinthians president keen on to sign Man Utd experienced forward

By | August 6, 2022

Corinthians president Duilio Monteiro Alves has revealed that he would love to secure services of Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of the 2022/23 season.

The 37-year-old is said to be keen on to force a move away from Man United before the end of the transfer window despite the teams desire to keep him.

Chelsea Atletico Madrid, Napoli, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Sporting Lisbon are among the teams to be linked with the Portuguese superstar this summer.

However, there is not currently a clear suitor for the striker, with Man United said to be confident of keeping him at Old Trafford for the 2022-23 campaign.

Speaking during a press conference on Friday afternoon, the 20-times English champions head-coach, Erik ten Hag revealed that he is “really happy” to have the Portuguese forward in his squad.

Corinthians president Alves has now revealed his ambition to bring the ex-Sporting Lisbon forward to Brazil, having managed to sign ex-Chelsea and Arsenal winger Willian last year.

He told Ulissescast: “It is true that I want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. I have big dreams… with everything that happens in football, I feel obliged to try for whatever is best for Corinthians.

“I don’t know whether we will be able to get him. We haven’t yet made an approach or sounded him out. But we are keeping an eye on him. Maybe he will want to come and play in Brazil. I don’t see why not.”
