Cristiano Ronaldo has been associated with a number of clubs for a potential signing this season. The Portuguese international has decided to leave Manchester United. He is in search to find a new club to play Champions League next season. Although with the transfer deadline approaching, clubs like Chelsea, PSG, and Bayern Munich have denied any interest in the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. Amid all the drama, Ronaldo has been associated with a club that could shock his fans and legacy at the Real Madrid football club.
As per Spanish outlet Diario AS, Cristiano Ronaldo has convinced Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simone to bring him to the club. However, the report has created a sensation among the fans as Ronaldo does not have a brilliant history with Atletico Madrid. He was not well-liked by the Atletico fans because of his phenomenal success with their rival club Real Madrid.
Thus, if Ronaldo decides to move to Atletico, his enormous legacy at Real Madrid would be tarnished. Meanwhile, fans would get a clear idea about Ronaldo’s future next season as the United fans await his next move. Ronaldo is unwilling to stay at Old Trafford. However, Erik ten Hag had already made it clear that CR7 is not for sale this summer. So, it will be thrilling to find out if the Portuguese stays or leaves the club.
Cristiano was also associated recently with his former club Sporting Lisbon, where he started his league career before moving to Manchester United. There were rumors that Ronaldo might be interested in moving to his boyhood club after a post went viral. However, CR7 was quick to respond, claiming that the rumors were “Fake.”

The report suggested that CR7 was on the verge of signing a sensational return to Lisbon.
However, Cristiano was quick to respond to the speculations, which involved untrue rumors about him. He commented on the particular post by simply writing “fake” on it. Thus, the 37-year-old has clarified that a potential move to Sporting was not on the table this summer.
