Cristiano Ronaldo - Is he still worth a big transfer fee?:
Ronaldo had a good tournament even though Portugal didn't get anywhere near as far into the competition as most predicted. Ronaldo managed an impressive five goals, all coming in the "group of death" that included France, Germany and Hungary. In fact, the goals helped him to equal the men's international goal-scoring record, which goes to show that even when his team underwhelms, Ronaldo is still out there making headlines.
After some much deserved rest and relaxation though, you can be sure that Ronaldo will be raring to get back into the gym and onto the training pitch to have another monumental season. Yet with rumours of where his future will be constantly swirling round, here is a quick look at what could be next for the superstar.
Back to Old Trafford
Yup, as we reported a bit ago, another summer rolls around and there’s another rumour of Ronaldo going back to Manchester United. Yet as time moves forward, it really does seem that this time there could be truth to the tale. After all, the season just gone at Juventus was a total disaster, with the club being knocked out of the Champions League by the unfancied Porto. It was somehow even worse in the league, where the Italian side managed to just scrape a fourth place finish in Serie A.
Apparently due to all this, Ronaldo has been on at his agent, Jorge Mendes, to find him the next chapter in his remarkable career. This has put Manchester United on high-alert, with the English giants looking to add some more sparkle to their side to finally help them take back the title from their rivals Manchester City. There are rumours that the price could be as low as £25 million, but Ronaldo would have to slice his wage demands to return to Manchester. It seems like it could be a great fit, as United are crying out for an experienced winner who will come in and take the entire team to the next level, and where better for Ronaldo to be, than at the place where he is still most loved.
Though if United don't cough up the money needed to bring Cristiano and his goal-scoring boots to Manchester, there's definitely another team that would be more than willing to foot the bill. Step forward Paris Saint-Germain, a team with all the money and an unwavering desire to be the champions of Europe. What better asset than a man with a never say die attitude and who also will stop at nothing to be crowned the greatest. The two seem a perfect pair, and we’re sure PSG manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has lined up the Portuguese superstar as the missing piece that would slot in and raise them from nearly-rans to kings of Europe. Plus, imagine an attack of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Ronaldo, that would terrify the sternest of defences.
