Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Karim Benzema’s “Little Brother” interview!
Less than a year ago, Manchester United created the event by securing the services of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese, back in the club that saw him hatch, hoped to help the Red Devils regain the heights that had disappeared since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013. But after a lackluster first season on the collective level (a sixth qualifying place for the Europa League), but successful on a personal level (24 goals and three assists in 39 games in all competitions), the striker would begin to seriously question the viability of the project carried by his team, as explained the DailyMail.
The pressure shot of CR7
Above all, the fivefold Ballon d’Or would like its leaders to accelerate on the transfer window to strengthen a group still far from being able to compete with the big cars on the other side of the Channel. As the media explains, he would have put a lot of pressure on his management while the transfer window is still floundering, in the form of “either you start recruiting or I leave”. A complicated situation to manage for the leaders who have been trying for several weeks to bring vital forces to Erik Ten Hag, in vain, the Frenkie De Jong file continuing to drag on, just like that of the Brazilian Anthony. We will have to pull out the heavy artillery to convince the former Real Madrid player to stay and take part in a season without the Champions League for the first time in his career, especially as Bayern Munich remains on the lookout for a big cut.
Cristiano Ronaldo would have asked his leaders to accelerate on the transfer window under penalty of leaving the club a year after his return to Manchester United. The Red Devils are yet to pull off any big moves in the summer transfer window.
