NEVER challenge ‘Cristiano Ronaldo’ (Video)
According to reports, Ronaldo’s representatives have made contact with Diego Simeone’s side and persuaded the Argentine manager to make a move for the player.
If Diario’s sensational report were to prove true then it would surely be the transfer story of the summer, but the long standing rivalry between Ronaldo and the club means there is plenty of scepticism over the validity of the claim.
After 311 goals in 292 games for Real, and victory over Atletico in not one but two Champions League finals in three years, Ronaldo became public enemy number one amongst Atleti fans, and a move would surely create friction with the fanbase.
As well as Atletico, he has also been linked with a shock return to boyhood club Sporting Club, in what would be a sensational switch back the club where it all began for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
The Portuguese legend took to Instagram to deny rumours of a return to Sporting, after a photo was posted by Sport TV Portugal claiming his car was spotted at the club’s stadium.
