There has been a lot of speculation for the past weeks about the striker’s future, with Manchester United and PSG both linked with a transfer away Italy.
Jose Mourinho once worked with Ronaldo during his stay at Real Madrid. Christian Vieri thinks Jose Mourinho will want Cristiano Ronaldo to lead his Roma attack.
Christian Vieri thinks Cristiano Ronaldo could become the Main man behind ex-Tottenham boss’ new project in the Italian captial.
Speaking on Bobo TV via Marca, Vieri said: “(Jose) Mourinho wants to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Roma.”
However, his claim quickly received backlash from another former Italy international, Antonio Cassano.
He said: “Ronaldo to Roma? That’s nonsense.
“Mourinho didn’t get on well with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid. How can you think he’s going to go to Roma?
I don’t know if it’s because they have the same agent, Jorge Mendes, or a Portuguese sporting director, but how can you think Cristiano’s going to Roma?”
Cristiano Ronaldo’s future is up in the air amid speculation he could leave Juventus.
Ronaldo may have to take a pay cut in order to return to Old Trafford and it is unlikely Roma would be able to compete in that department.
PSG will be the perfect destination if CR7 wont agree a pay cut to join Man United or Roma.
A report from Corriere dello Sport also suggests Ronaldo could leave Juventus due to the fact he has won every domestic competition in Italy.
But girlfriend Georginia Rodriguez thinks Ronaldo will not be moving this summer, so the 36-year-old’s future is very uncertain at present.
