GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS
Cristiano Ronaldo is on his way back to Manchester United following a £21million deal with Juventus.
United legend Rio Ferdinand has hinted that Edinson Cavani may have given up his No7 shirt for Ronaldo.
The star forward wore the iconic jersey number during his first spell at Old Trafford between 2003 and 2009.
Speaking on his FIVE YouTube show, Ferdinand said: “Just to think Cavani could be the back-up for Ronaldo, it’s unbelievable.
“Cavani, I have to say, what a man! He saw who was coming to town and gave up the No7 shirt”
The 36-year-old will obviously play no part today against Wolves at Molineux, which means fans will have to wait until after the international break to see the five-time Ballon d’Or winner back in action.
Thus, the Portugal international is most likely to debut on September 11 against Newcastle at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo’s arrival at United means the Manchester giants will not be pursuing Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland until further notice.
Thus, Paris Saint-Germain are considering a move for Haaland to replace Kylian Mbappe.
Real Madrid are reportedly on the verge of agreeing a whopping £154million deal with PSG for Mbappe, whose contract runs out next year and he has refused to extend his stay in Paris.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the Parisians are believed to have contacted the star striker’s agent Mino Raiola over the possibility of a move before August 31, when the transfer window slams shut.
But a deal will be difficult to complete at this late stage and talks between PSG and Dortmund have yet to begin.
Finally, United have rekindled their interest in Atletico Madrid star Kieran Trippier.
That is according to The Athletic, who claim that the Red Devils may not be done yet after signing Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Ronaldo.
However, it seems like the Manchester giants will only make a move if Diogo Dalot exits before deadline day.
Dalot has attracted interest from Dortmund but it seems like he will stay put at Old Trafford.
