Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United after problems culminated when the Portuguese appeared on a TV show with Piers Morgan, in which he attacked the club and the coach. The English team then announced the termination of the contract between the two parties by mutual consent.
Marca reports that Cristiano Ronaldo has already agreed with the Saudi club Al-Nasr to transfer him in January in a free transfer deal that could reach 200 million euros over two seasons.
The Spanish newspaper does not rule out that the Portuguese will play for 6 months on loan at the English club Newcastle, which is owned by the Saudi sovereign fund.
Manchester United is now seeking to sign a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, as he prefers between two wings, one of them from Barcelona, according to the Catalan newspaper Sport.
And the newspaper says that Eric Ten Hag asked the Manchester United administration to sign Barcelona winger, Dutchman Memphis Depay, next January during the Winter Mercato.
Manchester United want Memphis Depay on a free transfer in January. Barcelona may agree to this offer to provide the Dutch player’s salary, whose contract will expire in June 2023.
Memphis Depay gives priority to the highest salary, there is also Chelsea in the picture and he wants to sign the Dutchman, who may agree if he gets the salary he wants. His move to Juventus was thwarted in the summer due to his demand for €7 million annual salary, which the Italian team considered exaggerated.
There is another option managed by Manchester United, which is the Dutch winger Cody Gakpo at Eindhoven, but it will be an expensive option, as his contract with his club extends until 2026, which means that his signing will cost huge sums.
