Cristiano Ronaldo's Comments About Never Joining Man City Now Look Hilarious

Cristiano Ronaldo's Comments About Never Joining Man City Now Look Hilarious

Cristiano Ronaldo is a Manchester United icon. After joining the club as a teenager, he went on to win everything there was to win at Old Trafford.

Despite the fact that he left United in 2009, their supporters have remained strangely obsessed with the Portuguese star for over a decade.

Many of them might be about to view him in a very different light.

It has been heavily rumoured that Cristiano Ronaldo is about to sign for Manchester City, with the two parties having apparently agreed personal terms.

The Premier League side have yet to agree a transfer fee with Juventus, although a bid of around €25million should be enough to get it done.

It would certainly be strange to see Ronaldo line out for City, perhaps no more than for the player himself. While he has long been linked with a return to Manchester, nobody thought it would be to the blue half.

That includes the 36-year old, who said back in 2015 that he would never consider joining his former rivals.

You think the money is going to change my mind now at 30-years old? I don't think so, this is not going to be a problem.

If you want to speak about the money, I will go to Qatar. They probably have more money than Manchester City.

It's not about the money, it's about the passion.

Those comments certainly haven't aged well.

So what has changed in the last six years to make Ronaldo reconsider this position? Quite a few things.

At this time, the player was winning a huge amount of trophies at Real Madrid, while Manchester City were just establishing themselves as the dominant force in the Premier League.

Perhaps he felt that he would finish his career in Madrid and would have no reason to ever consider another club.

Even now, the move is not about money. Ronaldo will have to take a pay cut to join Manchester City, but they will offer him the best chance to win trophies as he enters his final couple of seasons at the top level.

That's what he cares about, any presumed loyalties to Manchester United be damned.
