During this summer, Manchester United had to fight a tough battle against Real Madrid to prevent Cristiano Ronaldo from going anywhere. His decision to finally stay at the club came as a great relief to Alex Ferguson.
Though the relationship between the Spanish La Liga Champions and the Red Devils is more damaged than ever, the two clubs – at least – are now at peace. The question is, for how long?
With Ronaldo expressing his desire to join the Spanish giants come next season, Fergie has to think of building new plans to be able to fight and win against Madrid in â€˜part 2â€™ of the Ronaldo transfer saga.
The Board of Manchester United is presently facing huge debts and with money being Ronaldoâ€™s main reason to join Los Meringues, it looks like the English Champions have very little chances to prevent the Portuguese Star from leaving next summer.
Ironically, â€˜The Ronaldo transfer saga, part 2â€™ could have a twist in its tale. Instead of setting his mind on a move to Madrid far away in Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo might be tempted to switch to another club closer to Old Trafford where riches are abundant like oil in the Emirates.
Well, letâ€™s go straight to the pointâ€¦ what if Manchester City becomes Ronaldoâ€™s next destination?
The Abu Dhabi royal family, now the owners of Manchester City wasted no time to revolutionize the club. Robinhoâ€™s shocking move from Real Madrid to Manchester Unitedâ€™s local rivals in the final hours of the transfer window is just the commencement of a new era for the Manchester City football club.
The Abu Dhabi royal family plans to attract more and more big players to challenge for titles and break through the so-called â€˜big fourâ€™. It could be that Ronaldoâ€™s name is part of their purchase list.
Should it then be the case, would Ronaldo refuse to make what could be the transfer of the century in the history of Manchester United?
