Enrique Cerezo: “Practically impossible” for Cristiano Ronaldo to join Atletico Madrid from Manchester United
Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has stated, via transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, that the stories linking Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo to the Spanish club are baseless.
Los Colchoneros have been linked with a shock move for the former Real Madrid attacker. But the club president has refuted all those claims.
In the words of Cerezo, “it’s practically impossible” for the 37-year-old to make a move to Atletico this summer. It seems the number seven stays in Manchester for now.
United are currently struggling to keep a hold of their star man. Ronaldo seems to be on his way out of Manchester after just one season back with the Red Devils.
Old Trafford will not be witnessing Champions League football next season. Erik ten Hag has come with a good reputation from Ajax, but it remains to be seen what the Dutch manager can do with the squad currently at his disposal.
Apart from the Portuguese legend, United lack a serious goal-scoring threat in the side. The 37-year-old was our highest goalscorer last season. Other forwards in the side were disappointing.
Anthony Martial wasn’t featured much last season. The opportunities the 26-year-old did get weren’t taken by him. The Frenchman left for Sevilla on loan in January. Although now, the pre-season has been promising for the striker.
Other forwards included Jadon Sancho and Anthony Elanga, who had their moments last season but rarely. Marcus Rashford had one of his worst seasons in a red shirt. Mason Greenwood was suspended for most of the campaign.

If Ronaldo leaves, it’ll make a massive dent in the squad. Fans doubt that any of our other forwards have the ability to plug the hole the Portuguese legend’s departure would make.
