Cristiano Ronaldo in Dortmund: the German club comes out of silence

The Cristiano Ronaldo transfer rumor mill continues to make headlines every day, with the Portuguese superstar linked with every possible club under the sun.

With Ronaldo desperate to leave Manchester United after their horrific start to the season, a departure has yet to materialise.

Ronaldo’s return has not been what he would have hoped for when he signed the dotted line in the summer of 2021, with Manchester United finishing 6th in the Premier League last season.

Things have not improved this season despite a few signings from manager Erik ten Hag with United languishing bottom of the table after losing to Brighton and Brentford.

Ronaldo’s desire to return to Champions League football received another blow on Friday when Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke insisted the German club were not in talks to sign Ronaldo, reports the Mirror.

The Dortmund CEO said: “I love him as a player, it’s certainly a lovely idea. Seeing Cristiano Ronaldo play at Signal Iduna Park but there’s no contact between the parties involved. So from now you should stop talking about it.

United manager ten Hag, who was initially adamant that United would not sell Ronaldo, is now ready to sell the legendary footballer in the transfer window, according to the Times. With more than a week of the summer window remaining, it remains to be seen if the move will materialize.
