Ronaldo says he was close to joining Man City but chose Man Utd
Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he was close to joining Pep Guardiola’s side Man City in 2021.
Ronaldo further claimed there were other clubs, who were interested in signing him from Italian Juventus last year.
But he instead chose to follow “his heart” and rejoined the Red Devils.
“Well, honestly, it [moving to City] was close. They spoke a lot, and Guardiola said two weeks ago that they tried hard to have me.
“But, as you know, my history is at Manchester United. Your heart, you’re feeling the way you did before, and it made the difference. And of course, as well, Sir Alex Ferguson.
“So I took the decisions and I repeat: I was with conscience that it was a good decision.
“Things changed around in 72 hours. You plan or they spoke, not only Man City but other clubs too. Man Utd wasn’t part of those teams but it surprised everybody, even me,” Ronaldo said.
Ronald has come under massive criticism after the initial episodes of the interview with Piers Morgan, whoere he claimed he felt “betrayed by the club.”
