It’s that time again as Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to leave Real Madrid, Manchester United track a Leeds full-back and Michu would rather retire than go to Celtic…
‘UNHAPPY’ RONALDO READY TO LEAVE REAL?
It’s only about two months ago since the ‘Cristiano Ronaldo to leave Real’ reports were doing the rounds and they are back again already.
According to Le10Sport, the website that first published El Hadji Diouf’s comments accusing Steven Gerrard of racism, Ronaldo could leave Real Madrid at the end of the season.
It’s certainly not gospel by any means, given that their source is a French journo called Frederic Hermel, with 1200 Twitter followers.
The French website says Manchester United, Paris St-Germain and Major League Soccer will battle to sign the 30-year-old Ronaldo, who is now believed to have a one billion euro buyout in his contract, at the end of the season because he wants to leave over his treatment at the Bernabeu.
‘Treatment’ I hear you say, well we’re not sure about that either…pinch of salt anyone?
UNITED TARGET LEEDS STAR TAYLOR
Manchester United are plotting a sensational swoop on Leeds for rising star Charlie Taylor, according to several of the tabloids.
United boss Louis van Gaal has sent his scouts to watch the Leeds defender in action several times already this season and he could make a £6million bid for the 21-year-old with Luke Shaw ruled out of action for at least six months.
MICHU – RETIRE OR GO TO CELTIC?
Celtic were apparently keen on signing Swansea forward Michu before his representatives suggested the 29-year-old is considering retiring, according to The Sun.
Michu is is still on the books of the Welsh side and has not returned to the club since his season-long loan at Napoli last season.
The striker, who scored 22 goals in 43 appearances when he burst on the scene with the Swans in 2012/13, is struggling to shake off an ankle problem and the potential lure of the SPFL appears not to be enough to stop the former Rayo Vallecano man from hanging up his boots.
