Real Madrid stance on making Ronaldo transfer U-turn after Benzema injury update 

After departing Manchester United earlier this week, Cristiano Ronaldo is currently without a club to play for.

According to reports, Real Madrid has no plans to reverse their decision to not pursue a transfer for Cristiano Ronaldo, even though they are keeping their fingers crossed that Karim Benzema will be able to make his comeback before the end of the year. After Ronaldo’s departure from Manchester United earlier this week, he is currently without a club to play for.

Ronaldo, who played at the Bernabeu Stadium between the years 2009 and 2018, had a dismal second stint at Old Trafford after re-signing with the club in the summer of last year. His first stint at Old Trafford was between 2009 and 2018. Even though the 37-year-old scored an excellent 24 goals across all competitions during the previous campaign, he was the target of severe criticism as United failed to produce on the pitch while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his interim replacement Ralf Rangnick were in charge of the team.

And Ronaldo’s career with the Red Devils took a turn for the worst this season after he became less of a fan favorite under Erik ten Hag and was only given the nod to start four times in the Premier League. And after the blockbuster star revealed to Piers Morgan in an explosive interview just before the World Cup that he felt “betrayed” by the club, Manchester United took action to call an end to his time spent in the north west of the country.

During his hunt for a new club, Ronaldo’s name has been mentioned in connection with a possible transfer to Real Madrid, Newcastle, and Saudi Arabia. After suffering an injury with France in the lead-up to the World Cup and being forced to miss the tournament, Benzema has already made a solid recovery in the Real Madrid gym, so a move to the Bernabeu is not in the cards, according to the Spanish magazine AS.

Benzema is putting in training at the Valdebebas gym right now, and the Real Madrid physios and medical staff are keeping a close eye on what he’s doing. In addition, the Spanish powerhouses are keeping their fingers crossed that the forward will be fit for the match against Real Valladolid on the 30th of December, which will be the beginning of their La Liga season.

During his tenure in Spain, Ronaldo won a total of four Ballon d’Or awards in addition to three Club World Cups and four Champions League titles. According to AS, however, top Real Madrid officials have stated that bringing the Portugal striker back to the club “would not make sense in our sports agenda.” Because of this, the seasoned player will have to look for another organization to play for throughout the second half of the season.

A statement released by Manchester United on Tuesday evening stated, “Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect.” (Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Manchester United) “We would like to express our gratitude to him for the significant contributions he made throughout both of his stints at Old Trafford,” the club said.

And Ronaldo then went ahead and issued his own statement, which read as follows: “Following negotiations with Manchester United, we have mutually agreed to finish our contract early.” Both Manchester United and its supporters have my undying affection, and that will never, ever change. On the other hand, I believe that the time has come for me to look for a new challenge. I want to use this opportunity to wish the squad the best of luck for the rest of the season and for the years to come.
