How United overtook City for Cristiano Ronaldo

While the two clubs meet again this Saturday as part of the 11th day of Premier League , The Daily Star returned to the scenes of the soap opera Cristiano Ronaldo , eventful until the last moments of the summer transfer window. Indeed, the English tabloid explains that Manchester City negotiated for six weeks the arrival of the Portuguese with Jorge Mendes and Juventus when the club realized that it would be impossible for them to get their hands on Harry Kane (Tottenham). The Ronaldo option then seemed ideal for the Skyblues, willing to offer the Turinese € 29 million for this transfer, until Manchester United is informed of the progress of the discussions. After the endorsement of the Glazers family, owner of the club, the executive vice president Ed Woodward and the commercial director Richard Arnold then entered into action to try to seal the plans of their rival. “I couldn't accept it in the sky blue jersey. Never. I would prefer to tear my eyes out, ”recognizes a senior Red Devils official today. Sir Alex Ferguson is commissioned by United at the end of August to convince Cristiano Ronaldo not to accept the offer of City , a phone call in just 20 seconds that was enough to flatter the 36-year-old forward, speaking to Old Trafford executives afterward to strike a deal within 72 hours. Not wishing to go to war with Manchester City , Jorge Mendes will then inform the club of Pep Guardiola of this turnaround, prompting Manchester United announced the existence of an agreement from Friday, August 27, to fear of knowing in his turn a clap of thunder. City has since denied being interested in Ronaldo , although the Daily Star assures that Pep Guardiola would have been furious at the failure so late preventing him from activating an alternative track, when the first documents had been drawn up for the transfer of the Portuguese star, which ultimately never saw the light of day.
