Manchester United are looking to get back to their glory days under new manager Erik ten Hag. The Dutch manager took over at Old Trafford this summer and has overseen significant improvements in the first team’s fortunes.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United are unlikely to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, according to journalist Dean Jones. Elsewhere, acclaimed transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has said that the Red Devils have suffered a setback in their pursuit of a Napoli forward.
On that note, here’s a look at the key Manchester United transfer stories as on November 24, 2022:
Newcastle United unlikely to sign Cristiano Ronaldo
However, speaking to Give Me Sport, Jones said that Newcastle are likely to turn down the offer and stick to their recruitment plans.
“It’s really interesting that Ronaldo has been offered to Newcastle – it just shows how high their profile in the game suddenly is. It’s very unlikely to happen, as Newcastle have a pretty clear recruitment plan they want to stick to. Again, that’s quite interesting – Newcastle willing to turn down Ronaldo is a pretty big deal!” said Jones.
Ronaldo helped Portugal secure a 3-2 win over Ghana in their FIFA World Cup opener on Thursday, opening the scoring from the spot. That made him the first player to score in five editions of the quadrennial competition.
