Rafael Leao is acquired by Manchester United thanks to Jorge Mendes

Football Express

In a shocking agreement, Jorge Mendes wants to send Rafael Leao to Manchester United and send Cristiano Ronaldo to AC Milan. The Red Devils would permit Ronaldo to come to Milan. He will come on a six-month loan deal in January. As part of a €110 million bid for Leao, according to the Italian tabloid Quotidiano Sportivo. 

The salary of Ronaldo was 8 million dollars. Leao has apparently decided not to extend his Milan contract. The contract expires in 2024 and has recently been linked to a transfer to the Premier League.

In twelve Serie A games this season, he has provided six goals and four assists. He might bolster United’s offense, which was already lacking before Ronaldo’s heated chat with Piers Morgan.

Leao, though, almost exclusively plays off the left side, and United may not want to prioritize a position. Where Alejandro Garnacho, Jadon Sancho, and Marcus Rashford all want to play—at least not at such a high cost.

The Red Devils are particularly weak in potency in the center, as Anthony Martial is the sole striker available to Erik ten Hag (when healthy). The lone left-footed attacker on the team is Antony, who United signed for the right wing in the offseason. Leao had indisputable qualities, but he wouldn’t resolve one of those issues.

Regarding Cristiano Ronaldo, United is not likely to want to have him on the team in any manner, including a loan. At Old Trafford, he has effectively burned all his bridges by criticizing his team, manager, colleagues, and even United legends.

Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Manchester United empty-handed as they achieve their goals

Manchester United will not pay Cristiano Ronaldo any compensation following his abrupt exit from the team. Ronaldo departed the club by mutual consent with immediate effect. United announced in a statement less than 48 hours before Portugal’s opening World Cup game against Ghana.

The news follows the bombshell interview the Portuguese striker gave last week. He enraged United by leveling scathing criticisms at the club’s owners, the Glazer family, manager Erik ten Hag, and other club officials. Ronaldo had broken his contract, United was resolved to let him go without a payoff, and Telegraph Sport has learned that the star will leave Old Trafford with nothing.
