Galatasaray set to go “all out” for Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in January transfer window
The Super Lig outfit are thinking about putting in an ambitious bid for the Portugal international. Okan Burak’s team have already gotten the likes of Juan Mata and Mauro Icardi in the recent transfer window.
The Turkish giants’ chief Erden Timur is coy about the possibility of getting the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to the Nef Stadium. However, he is in contact with the 37-year-old’s representatives.
United finished the previous campaign in sixth place in the Premier League. And the Red Devils missed out on Champions League football with Tottenham Hotspur snatching the fourth position from us and Arsenal.
Ronaldo had a decent 2021/22 season. He finished as our top goalscorer. However, the Portuguese was looking to part ways with United after a year. But he ended up staying in Manchester after the end of the recent transfer deadline.
Under Erik ten Hag, though, Ronaldo has not enjoyed the best of spells. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has spent most of his time on the bench, with the Dutch manager preferring other options up front. The 37-year-old was left on the bench as Manchester City beat us 6-3.
Ronaldo’s current situation at United has sparked speculation of a move in the winter window. It remains to be seen whether the Portuguese stays beyond January.
However, Galatasaray are not in the best of nick at the moment. The Lions finished 13th in the Super Lig last season. And currently, Burak’s team sit in fourth place in the Turkish first division.
