Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Man United. And Rio Ferdinand made a comment regarding Cristiano Ronaldo when discussing the transfer strategy of Liverpool in comparison to Manchester United.
Liverpool are currently the ‘king’ of the transfer window.
Thanks to Klopp and his sporting project, Anfield is the players’ most preferred destination. It’s evident from the fact that players’ like Nunez preferred Anfield move over others. And above this, we also saw Salah’s contract extension, in which he chose Liverpool over other European giants.
And In contrast, Liverpool’s bitter rivals, Man United, are not preferred by players. Where we see players like Frenkie De Jong trying hard not to make a move to Old Trafford.
And above all this, we see Red Devils’ own legend Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave the club.
And all this has led to Rio Ferdinand making a comment comparing both clubs’ transfer strategies.
As Jurgen Klopp restructures his roster, the Reds have added three new players this summer. For the upcoming season, Darwin Nunez, Calvin Ramsay, and Fabio Carvalho have all joined the ranks of Liverpool.
Rio Ferdinand on Transfer operations of Liverpool FC
Ferdinand was contrasting Liverpool’s operations with those of Manchester United, his previous team. Speaking about Cristiano Ronaldo’s rumored transfer request, the former center defender asserts that the Portugal international will have been closely following Liverpool’s transfer negotiations.
He said on Ronaldo’s transfer request on his Youtube channel:
“He’ll be sitting there, on his sun lounger, on his yacht, on his jet, wherever he is in the world.
Seeing Manchester City signing Haaland. Seeing Liverpool signing Nunez, among other players. Phillips has just gone to Manchester City as well.
He would be thinking ‘we had work catching these guys, anyway, before these big signings come into these football clubs and now they are jumping even further away from us’. Arsenal is making moves.
He’s sitting there thinking ‘when is my team going to start making moves. We all know we need some new faces in that building. And he ain’t seen no moves.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has always been a winner. He has always kept his Champions Mentality intact wherever he went.
But what would the world be like when supposedly ‘the King’ of the Champions League will be playing in Europa League. As United hasn’t qualified for this season’s UCL.
Though United are trying to build a competitive squad by signing Eriksen and currently negotiating for Ajax products De Jong and Antony. They also have signed Ten Hag as their manager who can lead them to glory once again.
