So the CR7 actor is active behind the scenes to please Mancunians like his client.

But it was Thomas Tuchel who vetoed it. And while Sporting Lisbon is still dreaming of his comeback, it was Borussia Dortmund who had the favouritism of the Portuguese. In fact, CBS Sports It was announced last week that the former Real Madrid player is prioritizing the Grassians. But very quickly, the German team ruled out the path to the international Lusitnian.
Dortmund let him down

And contrary to what one might think, not for financial reasons. Despite all the BVB’s admiration for CR7, thoughtful club chiefs considered recruiting him to be a risk.
why ? According to the heads of the German club, Cristiano Ronaldo had attracted all the attention and caused discussions in the locker room. Such was the case for Erling Braut Haaland, who left for Manchester City.
