Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has giving an update on Cristiano Ronaldo’s future saying the player will decide where he is going to play and insists he is ‘delighted’ with the squad he has.
Ronaldo has left Turin, but Juventus still haven’t received an offer for the 36-year-old.
Manchester United have now reportedly joined the race to sign the Portuguese star with Jorge Mendes in talks with the Red Devils.
Guardiola briefly discussed Ronaldo’s future during a pre-match press conference today.
“I cannot say much. Harry Kane announced he continues at his club, an exceptional club like Tottenham. Cristiano was at Juventus, I think a Juventus player. Only I can say that in this three or four days left in the transfer window everything can happen,” Guardiola said.
“In my personal view there are few players, Ronaldo and Messi included, that they decide where they are going to play.
“They are the absolutely leading role in the negotiations and the desire of where they want to play. In that position, right now I’m more than delighted with the squad we have and we’ll stay the same.”
Juventus need at least €25m to sell Ronaldo to avoid a capital loss.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested the Red Devils may be interested in welcoming the player back at Old Trafford.
