Iconic football star – Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he was “close” to moving to Manchester City last summer but Sir Alex Ferguson’s intervention saw him choose Manchester United instead.
Cristiano Ronaldo spoke in his first of two interviews with Piers Morgan on TalkTV on Wednesday. He also said other clubs were interested in signing him from Juventus in 2021 but the 37-year-old followed “his heart” and rejoined United, despite them not initially being in the running for him.

In the second part of this explosive interview, Ronaldo opens up about the “lack of respect” he has been shown by current Man United manager Erik ten Hag and the constant “excuses” for not bringing him on the pitch. Ronaldo suggests that this is why he cannot have respect for the manager because he constantly provokes and disrespects him.
He also talks about his retirement, being constantly compared to Lionel Messi, his meeting with Jordan Peterson and how he thinks Portugal will perform in the Qatar World Cup.
