But uncertain about his future after just a year at Old Trafford with the imminent arrival of Erik ten Hag, his sister who boasts 1.2 million followers on Instagram, believes he should have joined City rivals after appreciating. a post from a popular Portuguese fan account called @ cr7.o_lendario.

We all thought that being at Juventus was the greatest suffering and now United are left without Champions. [League]. This Manchester United team have been so poor it seems Juventus weren’t that bad, but they were. In my opinion Cristiano should not remain as “proof of love for the club”. The greatest proof of love has been his return to Manchester United despite him having received a proposal from Manchester City who is clearly a superior team, manager and recent history.
