Cristiano Ronaldo’s desperate pursuit of the Champions League. Jorge Mendes knocks on the closed door again

A Champions League without the most successful goalscorer in the history of the tournament? Day by day this scenario becomes more and more real. Agent Cristiano Ronaldo Jorge Mendes is exploring the Italian area this time to try to transfer the Manchester United footballer to Milan or Napoli.

Agent Jorge Mendes goes to great lengths to give the Portuguese a steady stream of participation in the most prestigious club tournament. On Thursday, the group stage was drawn and it is still unclear whether the popular “CR7” will bolster its goal score record in any of the teams entered.

At present, the debate over the potential transfer is most vibrant around Naples. Talks resumed after the first contacts in early August. The team from Stadio Diego Armando Maradona has nothing to complain about the current line-up in the offensive formation, as it includes figures such as Chwicza Kwaracchelia, Giacomo Raspadori and Giovanni Simeone.

For Ronaldo, the light at the end of the tunnel is still an unsettled question about the future of Victor Osimhen. There is a possibility that the Nigeria international will step down in favor of Manchester United, signaling interest in the transfer in the first weeks of the window.

In retrospect, the situation has changed dramatically. Osimhen is not a priority for the activists of the “Red Devils”, especially seeing Napoli’s attitude unwilling to get rid of his ward, as evidenced by the willingness to collect up to a nine-figure amount for a potential sale.

In the last days of the transfer period, the attention of this year’s Europa League participant is focused on Antony, with whom Erik ten Hag collaborated not so long ago in Ajax Amsterdam.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Osimhen’s change of club colors is still real as Bayern Munich shows initial interest. It does not change the fact that the envisaged negotiations between the parties may be fierce.

Another alternative emerges on San Siro. Jorge Mendes saw that AC Milan could hypothetically start running for the candidate to fill the seat following the possible departure of Rafael Leão, who is on the radars of several top European brands.

The problem is that “Rossoneri” are not going to get rid of the young Portuguese. To buy it, a given applicant must activate a clause worth … 150 million euros.

The end of the search for a new employer for the 37-year-old does not end with Italy. At worst, Mendes plans to return to discussions with Chelsea, Olympique de Marseille and Sporting.

The five-time European Cup winner leads the all-time goalscorer with 140 hits – 15 more than Lionel Messi, who will try to catch up with the leader’s result as a Paris Saint-Germain footballer.
