Cristiano Ronaldo has decided to leave Man Utd in search of a team who are playing in the Champions League. The Portuguese has still not returned to training at Man Utd while he resolves his future.
This decision has led to many teams being linked with the Portuguese. Some of those clubs included Chelsea, PSG, Bayern and now Atletico Madrid. However, Brazilian side Flamengo were also briefly linked with him.
The president of the 2019 Copa Libertadores champions explained the rumour: “I’d really like to sign Cristiano, but that’s unthinkable. We didn’t think about it at any moment.”
“We didn’t talk to him at all, I didn’t even think about it. When I was in Europe, I met his mother in a restaurant which my family were in. I was in Madeira, his home, that’s what happened,” the Flamengo president said.
