INTER MIAMI IN TALKS FOR RONALDO
Major League Soccer (MLS) outfit Inter Miami are reportedly in talks to sign veteran Manchester United attacker Cristiano Ronaldo. This is according to journalist Stefano Benzi who revealed that Portugal international Ronaldo is closing in on an agreement to join Inter Miami co-owned by David Beckham. David Beckham was influential in the appointment of former Manchester United teammate Phil Neville as the Inter Miami manager though the two parties have maintained that Neville was given the job on merit.
On the possibility of Ronaldo signing for Inter Miami,Benzi told CMIT TV that negotiations have already started between the player and Inter Miami. He added that Manchester United won’t stand in the way of the transfer to the MLS as the Glazers are keen on getting him off the wage bill at the club. The Glazers are the controversial owners at Manchester United.
Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham will definitely be at the forefront of the chase to get 37-year-old Ronaldo to Inter Miami.
Ronaldo is in the first season of his second spell at Manchester United after the five-time Ballon d'Or winner returned to the Theatre of Dreams at the start of the season. The Portugal national team skipper spent six years at Manchester United in his first spell at the club on the back of his transfer from Sporting Lisbon in his native Portugal and he scored 114 goals for the Premier League outfit before signing for Real Madrid for a world-record £80m fee as at then. In total, he spent 12 years away from Manchester United including nine years at Real Madrid and three years at Juventus before he made his return to Manchester United last summer.
Since returning to Manchester United, Ronaldo has scored 18 goals and he's the leading goalscorer at the club this season.
