Cristiano Ronaldo reveals he was close to joining Man City

Cristiano Ronaldo confirms he was contacted by Man City last summer.

Former manager Sir Alex Ferguson was the reason behind the veteran’s move to Old Trafford in the summer of 2021.

Man City were heavily linked with the Portuguese international that summer but Ronaldo ultimately chose his former club.

“Well, honestly, it was close… but as you know, as my history is Manchester United. Your heart, you’re feeling the way these two that you did before, make the difference. And of course, as well, Sir Alex Ferguson,” Ronaldo told Piers Morgan in his interview on TalkTV.

“So I was surprised. And the same way, but it was a conscious decision. Because the heart speaks, speaking loud in that moment.

“I think it was the key (Ferguson). It was the difference in that moment. I wouldn’t say that Manchester City wasn’t close. But I think, I did [make] a conscious decision. Sir Alex Ferguson was the key.

“Yes, I did. I spoke with him… He said to me that, ‘It’s impossible for you to come to Manchester City’. And I say, ‘OK, Boss’.”
