Solskjaer lifts lid on Ronaldo’s Man City link

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dismissed suggestions that Cristiano Ronaldo was genuinely close to joining cross-town rivals Manchester City this summer.

Late in the transfer window, reports emerged suggesting Ronaldo, who was desperate to leave Juventus, was prepared to join City and had already agreed on personal terms with Pep Guardiola’s side, but United swooped in late on and ensured they won the race for his signature instead.

Initially, it seemed as though United’s move for Ronaldo was more of a reaction to City’s alleged interest, but Solskjaer has disputed such claims and insisted a switch to the Etihad was never really an option.

“I don’t think there was any prospect of that,” he said (via Goal) when asked whether he had been ‘frightened’ by the reports of Ronaldo’s proposed move to City.

He was then asked whether Ronaldo was ever close to joining Guardiola’s side, to which Solskjaer responded: “I don’t think so.”
