Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo backed to join AS Roma in July
Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has been outlandishly stated to be in line to join AS Roma in July. It would undoubtedly be quite shocking to see that happen, although it is advisable to take this information with a pinch of salt as there has been no wind of such talk for such a move to be completed in a short time.
Despite being proved to be bogus, the claims linking Ronaldo to Roma continue to take place even now. That is the case even though Man United remain adamant that he will not be sold this summer and expect him to stay with them with a year being left in his current contract.
Speaking in an interview with Retesport (h/t Manchester Evening News), Angelo Di Livio has suggested that Cristiano could be announced by Jose Mourinho’s side as their player on July 7. Supposedly, he has “confirmation” from various sources, which is the reason for him believing this to be the case.
“I have confirmation from several sources that Rome is trying to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. From what I learned in recent days, Roma are really trying to sign Cristiano Ronaldo and July 7 could be the date of the announcement.”
No need to worry!
It is more than difficult in this modern football world to keep things under the radar for such a long time. That is especially the case when it comes to someone like Ronaldo, which makes it baffling to see why Di Livio is making this ridiculous claim when the date that he mentioned is just on the horizon.
In any case, there is no reason to be concerned about this matter when the Red Devils have control over the former Real Madrid man’s future. After all, he has to fulfil that contract to depart elsewhere, plus Erik ten Hag is also eager to work with him in the next season.
While there have been suggestions that Ronaldo has doubts about the club’s lack of business in the summer transfer window, there is no reason to be fearful about him leaving due to that reason. That is because we are close to finalising moves for Frenkie de Jong and Tyrell Malacia shortly.

Hence, it would be best if Di Livio’s claim is not paid much heed after taking into account the above factors. After all, even with our delicate situation, playing for us is a far better prospect than teaming with Mourinho and the Italian side, even with their recent rise.
Furthermore, the Serie A club also have Tammy Abraham in their ranks, and his transfer from Chelsea seems to have done wonders for them. In such a case, it would be puzzling to see why they would risk his minutes by signing Ronaldo, which in and of itself cast doubts on this talk.
