Solsjkaer Criticizes Cristiano Ronaldo’s Signing For Man City

This summer has been a special one in all facets with regards to transfers made by football clubs.

And yet again, Cristiano Ronaldo and PSG's Kylian Mbappe's possible transfers to Manchester City and Real Madrid have monopolized the sports pages of all dailies across the world.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo being linked to City seem not to have gone well with some people especially from the Manchester United quarters; and eyebrows have been raised.

The Portuguese star has one more season on his contract with Juventus, but his intention is to leave the Italian club this summer and City has been touted as his most likely destination.

United boss, Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer, is the first to voice out his displeasure towards reports linking the United legend to rivals Man City.

“I know we are professionals, but when you played for Manchester United you didn't go to Manchester City .”

GoalBall's Analysis:

Ole and other United fans who might share a similar view on this transfer need to understand that not all players will decide to be players like Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney et al.

The aforementioned players are British players who chose not to play for rival teams in England during their playing days and it's understandable – therefore, there's no reason to sneer at Ronaldo should he switch to Manchester City.

Also, Ronaldo being the best player in the world (albeit arguably) has every right to sign for any club he sees fit especially now that he'll be more concerned about ending his career on a high before retirement.

These are strange times in the football World, as such, the recent happenings should bring to the remembrance of all and sundry that “nothing is impossible” in the game.
