What will happen to Cristiano is the big question of this end of the transfer market. From two months ago the portuguese has made it clear in every possible way that he has decided to change things againand what happened a year ago at Juventus shows that, until the session is open, with CR7 and Mendes you never have to say never. The team that has been linked the most with the Portuguese, in the last three days, has been Naples. The Azzurri have been from the beginning of the market among the possible destinations of the former Madrid player and this weekend’s hypothesis was a huge operation that also involved Victor Osimhentip of 23 years. The southerners would have agreed to let the Nigerian out in exchange for 100 million, plus the loan or transfer of Cristianoalthough with a very low salary compared to what he receives this year (which is around 17 million net). Luciano Spalletti himself acknowledged twice that this scenario was not impossiblebecause a player like Osimhen “is always in the market” and “Training Cristiano is something you would talk about all your life”.
Robert Calendaagent of the former LilleHe posted on his social media that the striker “wants to play the Champions League in Naples”, a sign that increased pessimism about the operation. Then, moreover, the incorporation of Antony meant an expense for United that is around 100 millionand it seems unlikely that, before Thursday, the Red Devils will be able to shell out that huge amount again. Jorge Mendes, however, continues to pull the strings without pause. Without the departure of the Nigerian, it is most likely that the Naples option will be unfeasible and that other paths will have to be explored again. Among them is that of Chelsea, which has sounded again despite Tuchel’s supposed ‘no, thanks’. In England they say that the Blues could return to the horn for the striker, who, in this way, would play his desired Champions League in a team that also aspires to win it. Napoli, meanwhile, expect news from Mendes, with whom they are also working to incorporate Keylor Navas as a free agent. The Tico must first find an agreement for his settlement with PSG who, in turn, hope to close tomorrow the sale of Paredes to Juventus and will formalize the arrival of Fabián.
For Christianthen, until the day the market closes, all the doors must be left open, including the his stay at Old Trafford despite the regrets, and also wait for a new one to appear. A year ago, out of nowhere, He was one step away from signing first with Manchester City and, finally, he did it with United. With him, everything is possible… Both on the pitch and off it.
