Cristiano Ronaldo is overjoyed at the prospect of returning to Manchester United after a critical transfer failure.
The signing of Cristiano Ronaldo by Manchester United may have obscured the club’s failure to strengthen in a critical area.
Nobody can blame Manchester United fans for getting caught up in the chaos and excitement surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s comeback. On transfer deadline day, the Portuguese superstar completed his emotional return to Old Trafford after the club reached an agreement with Juventus.
For the first time in 12 years, the 36-year-old is back at Old Trafford as a player after leaving for Real Madrid.
In 2009, Ronaldo left the club in a world record £80 million transfer and went on to score 450 goals for Los Blancos.
The experienced attacker is back in Manchester after leaving for Juventus in 2018 after scored 101 goals in three seasons in Turin.
Ronaldo’s return to the Premier League has made headlines after he scored 118 goals for United during his first six years at the club.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the club’s recruitment manager John Murtough have had a highly successful transfer window, negotiating some difficult transactions over the last three months.
Soon after England’s Euro 2020 campaign came to a terrible end at the final hurdle, Jadon Sancho completed his long-awaited £73 million move from Borussia Dortmund.
The Red Devils then completed their protracted hunt for a world-class defensive partner for Harry Maguire earlier in August.
Raphael Varane joined United for £35 million from Real Madrid, and the 28-year-old has already won over United fans with a strong start against Wolves.
Solskjaer has addressed trouble areas that have kept the club from winning a trophy since 2017 with the trio of additions, but one remains.
After a dismal setback in the Europa League final against Villarreal in May, bringing in a proven winner like Ronaldo was a no-brainer.
Owen Hargreaves, a former Manchester United midfielder, felt that the setback in Gdansk highlighted the need for further reinforcements.
“You’re right,” he told BT Sport, “because if they had won, it might have covered the cracks and you wouldn’t have gone out and gotten [signings].”
“However, Ole may now believe they require three or four. Someone needed to come on and make a difference in that game.
“It’s been a long time since United.” Brinkwire Summary News.
