The ‘Atletico option’ is real for Cristiano: Simeone would give the green light
The newspaper ‘AS’ reports that Atletico Madrid is truly considering the option of signing Cristiano Ronaldo. He is to Cholo Simeone’s liking. The problem is that the ‘colchoneros’ would have to close sales worth more than 40 million euros. Economically, the arrival of the Portuguese is not viable.
Cristiano Ronaldo is determined to leave Manchester United for a Champions League team and, although it may seem fanciful, Atletico Madrid are one of the best placed to do so. Bayern Munich themselves have been excluded in the words of Oliver Kahn and there are no other candidates at the moment, although Cristiano has offered himself to several teams such as PSG.
The newspaper “AS” emphasizes that the Portuguese is to the liking of Cholo Simeone. The problem is that this is an operation that is difficult to fit into the budget. In fact, it would be impossible unless the ‘colchoneros’ closed sales worth more than 40 million euros, since the first 40 million euros are needed whether or not the Portuguese arrives at the team.
It is not known what the Portuguese thinks about the matter, as he only commented on the rumors that linked him to Sporting CP. The colchoneros will participate in the Champions League 22-23, so they fit into the plans of a ‘7’ that doesn’t want to be part of the new era of the red devils with Erik ten Hag at the helm.
What Cristiano wants is to remain in the elite and one of the many information that has been published about him in recent weeks helps to understand this. He turned down a mega-million dollar offer from Saudi Arabia to continue competing in the big leagues. At 37, he doesn’t feel old from a sporting point of view and wants to aspire to everything.
