Serie A club react with cheeky comment after their player extended his transfer offer to Cristiano Ronaldo on Instagram

by

Udinese responded to goalkeeper Marco Silvestri’s request Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo to join the Serie A club in the near future. The Portugal icon recently gave an interview where he expressed his ambitions with his national team.

He said (h/t Mirror):

“My ambition is great. I want to be present at the World Cup and the European Championships. I feel very motivated. My journey is not over yet.”

An excerpt from the interview was published by the broadcaster DAZN on Twitter. Silvestri, who joined Udinese from Hellas Verona in the summer of 2021, responded to the post asking the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to join his team. He commented:

@cristiano forthcoming @udinesecalcio

Udinese posted a Tweet on their club’s official Twitter account mentioning Silvestri’s comment and captioned it with an eye emoji. Their message can be seen below:

Ronaldo’s desire to leave Manchester United in the recently concluded transfer window is well documented (via The temperature). The Portugal ace wanted to play for a team participating in the UEFA Champions League and Jorge Mendes actively tried to make that happen.

However, no deal materialized and the striker remained at Old Trafford to make his UEFA Europa League debut. He did so in a 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad on September 8.

Udinese aren’t taking part in any European club competitions this season and so it’s hard to see the Portuguese icon wanting to join them. They are third in the Serie A table, however, just one point behind leaders Napoli.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s current contract with United expires in the summer of 2023 with the possibility of a one-year extension.

It remains to be seen whether United’s No.7 will push to leave the Red Devils again when the January transfer window opens next year.


Manchester City star picks Cristiano Ronaldo as ideal teammate against Lionel Messi

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has said he would like Cristiano Ronaldo to be his teammate against Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Lionel Messi.

The Belgium international was asked who he would prefer to play with between the two superstars, to which he replied (h/t SportBible):

“I would probably say Ronaldo because he’s more of a typical striker. Messi is even more of a playmaker. I’m a playmaker, you can give me a striker.”

The former Chelsea midfielder has never shared the pitch with Ronaldo or Messi in his career. De Bruyne’s comments, however, show that despite being 37, he is still highly rated by his peers.

Ronaldo started the 2022-23 season in poor fashion, scoring just one goal in eight appearances in all competitions. He scored 24 times in 38 games for the Red Devils last campaign, becoming their top scorer.
