Ronaldo receives the first offer to leave Man United

This has been a tumultuous week for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. Ronaldo r/e/ve/aled some “facts about Man United” to TalkTV presenter Piers Morgan in a sensational interview.

It seems increasingly likely that the 37-year-old will leave Old Trafford next year. Recently, it was r/e/v/e/aled that Ronaldo and his agent, Jorge Mendes, were in talks with Bayern Munich before the January transfer window.

And now, it is reported that Mendes has received a serious offer from the A-League. Danny Townsend, chief executive of the A-League, confirmed to Australian media on Thursday that he has been in contact with Ronaldo’s agent about a potential move and that they are currently “continued to negotiate”.

Townsend said: “Ronaldo says he doesn’t receive any love and respect at Man United but we will certainly give him a lot of love and respect in Australia. We can. We can’t compete financially with other offers, but we can compete in other ways.”

Townsend also told SportsFM radio about his plans for the r/e/v/eal: “Obviously it’s a long way but we certainly have a compelling proposition for him to consider.”

Earlier this year, Ronaldo’s former team-mate Nani signed with A-League club Melbourne Victory with a contract until the end of the 2023/24 season.

As Townsend pointed out to the media this week, the A-League may not be financially competitive with offers from elsewhere but the league has attracted some well-known names, including Charlie Austin, Joe Lolley and of course, Nani.

Man Utd ‘put all in’ to keep ‘Ronaldo’s brother’ which attracts criticism heavily

Manchester United are confident that breakout star Alejandro Garnacho will soon commit himself to a new contract with the club, sources have told 90min.

Manchester United are confident that breakout star Alejandro Garnacho will soon commit himself to a new contract with the club, sources have told 90min.

United have been in talks with Garnacho’s representatives since the summer and are “calm” about how the matter is progressing, with a lucrative long-term deal on the table for the 18-year-old, who scored a dramatic late winner against Fulham on Sunday.

Garnacho also made key contributions in the recent win League Cup win over Aston Villa and scored his first senior goal against Real Sociedad in the Europa League, and has now established himself as a genuine first team option ahead of the second half of the season.

The Argentinian is contracted at United until 2025 but United have offered him fresh terms more befitting of his new status within the club. United’s hope is that Garnacho puts pen to paper during the World Cup break.

“The club are calm about Garnacho and his future, they are confident he signs the new contract sooner rather than later. They believe the player is very happy at the club,” a well placed source told 90min.

United are also aware that there is major interest in the Madrid-born teenager, who has other options emerging. 90min understands Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona would love to bring him back to Spain after he left Atletico Madrid for Manchester in October 2020.

Both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are interested in taking him to Germany, while Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the player. But United are confident he will sign a new deal.

Erik ten Hag is determined to make sure Garnacho continues his progression in the right way, and spoke at length about the player following the win over Fulham.

“He has to keep his feet on the ground. He has to do much more investment. Big players know that, young players don’t know,” Ten Hag said.

“Now it’s a four-week break, that’s already a danger for him, because he now has momentum. Let’s see how he’s coming back. We have to manage that with him. His attitude is good and I’m certain he will have an impact.

“The danger is four weeks, no games, lose focus, less investment. It’s only when he stays on the same attitude that he’s working the last three, four or five weeks the process will keep going and his progress will keep going. If not, it goes the other way around.”
