There is a lot of talk about the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Manchester United and go to another club. Some of the clubs mentioned are Chelsea, PSG, and even Sporting Lisbon, where he grew up. Bruno Fernandes, Ronaldo's teammate, spoke for the Portuguese media.
However, Fernandes still knows nothing about Ronaldo's future. “Now we’re both on vacation and nobody bothers their friends on vacation,” said Bruno Fernandes for O Jogo. “What I hope is that Cristiano will be there with me on Monday, that he’s one of those who will come back later because of the Seleção’s games and I’m not waiting for nothing more than that.
As far as I know there is nothing more than that, but everyone knows their future. I don’t believe the club is willing to lose a value like Cristiano”.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Sporting
Sporting fans are already excited and hope that Ronaldo could really come back.
The question is how realistic it is at this moment, considering that most believe that the Portuguese can play another 4 seasons at the top level. What could make them happy is that Ronaldo said earlier that he would like to return to Sporting, but is it still too early or...
“I don’t know, but for Sporting fans it would be a great moment, almost everyone would like that to happen. But it depends on what Cristiano expects for his future. He has the ambition to continue playing for many years to come and we’ll see what he does will decide, I hope after the contract with United ends.
I think it’s a dream for most Sporting fans to see Cristiano wearing a Sporting shirt playing in Alvalade”. Although the previous season was bad, Bruno Fernandes expects that this season could be much better. “I believe that the club will be back at the place it deserves to be, that’s why I signed a new deal," he said.
"For me, I had long talks with the club, not about the contract but about the future of the club, because I want to be part of that if I stay. "The club wants to win, the club wants to build something. From what they have told me, I believe that the club will be back to its standards.
[It] could probably not be next season at the standard that we want, but I think step by step, the club will be back in the glorious days."
