Napoli rule out Cristiano Ronaldo move

Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli has shrugged off the rumours of Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo joining the Serie A club in January.

As per Goal, Cristiano Giuntoli has ruled out all chances of the potential arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at the club. The Manchester United forward is tipped to depart from Old Trafford in January as he seems to be unhappy with the current surroundings.

The 37-year-old was brought back into the starting lineup against Sheriff Tiraspol in the UEFA Europa League. And normal services resumed as the Portuguese international netted his third goal of the season.

Manchester United have propelled themselves in an orderly manner since their 6-3 bashing at the hands of Manchester City. And Erik ten Hag is very keen to leave his mark in his very first season.

The Dutch tactician has already reiterated his desire to bring a sense of discipline to the dressing room. And his handling of the Ronaldo incident is proof of his growing influence at Manchester United. The 37-year-old looked relieved to have ended his goal drought, but he will be looking for some redemption in the January transfer window.

Chelsea are deemed to be a suitable location for the former Real Madrid forward. But the Manchester United management will likely be unwilling to hand over one of the most potent weapons to their top-four rivals.

Napoli were thought to be pretty keen on taking Ronaldo to San Paolo. The Serie A giants have been on a roll and have not shown any signs of vulnerability this term. They are yet to lose a single match, and adding Ronaldo will further accelerate their chance of winning their first top-flight title since the 1989/90 season.

But Napoli/s sporting director has refused to entertain any kind of talks regarding a possible move for the superstar. “Right now we’re really thinking about the everyday, not the market. And if I had to think about the market, I’d say we won’t do anything, because I don’t see what to fix, there’s nothing to fix. Things are going so well, we will do nothing today.”

It remains to be seen whether the talismanic forward decides to leave Manchester United or if he stays to honour his current contract. The next few weeks will determine Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford.
