Cristiano Ronaldo not sold on Napoli transfer despite Champions League football on offer

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United future is still up in the air with the transfer window just three days away from shutting.

It has been reported all summer long that Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United to secure Champions League football, which is something we missed out on after finishing in sixth-place last season.

The problem Ronaldo and his agent, Jorge Mendes, are facing this summer is that offers are not plentiful for the 37-year-old. One club he has been linked to is Serie A outfit Napoli.

According to CBS’ Ben Jacobs, Napoli and United have downplayed speculation and Ronaldo isn’t fully sold on the move despite it giving him the opportunity to compete in the Champions League.

Maybe – after all that has been reported – Ronaldo’s future move is not dependent on Champions League football.

Maybe Ronaldo wants to go somewhere he is guaranteed to be playing every week. That is not going to happen under Erik ten Hag and I’m certainly warming to the idea after seeing United win back-to-back matches in the Premier League.

I wonder whether it’s a matter of Ronaldo not being keen on Napoli or the other way around?

Moreover, we’ll miss Ronaldo’s goals but not his overall impact on the team. His behaviour over the summer should be criticised.
