In the interview, Ronaldo, who had won the Ballon d’Or five times, criticized Manchester United, its manager Erik ten Hag, and the Glazer family, who owned the club.In a different part of the conversation, the Portugal great mentioned three players whom he considered to have been “top professionals” during his second stint at Old Trafford.
“In Manchester United, I can mention [Diogo] Dalot,” Ronaldo said in response to a question about which players he respected within the current squad.
I have no doubt that he will have a long career in football because he is youthful, smart, and intelligent, and he is also very professional. He is really young, but he is very professional.
The most likely candidate is [Lisandro] Martinez, and Casemiro is in his 30s; yet, I will go with Dalot.
It would appear that Casemiro, who is one of the few individuals Ronaldo admires for his professionalism, is on the verge of leaving United just eighteen months after joining the club.
The Brazilian player has reportedly piqued the interest of Ronaldo’s current club, Al Nassr, as reported by Mail Online.
According to the source, Al Nassr is reportedly interested in Casemiro and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is a teammate of Casemiro’s at United, and football director John Murtough is currently traveling to Saudi Arabia.
to investigate whether or not both of the agreements are feasible.According to reports, Casemiro makes more than £375,000 per week at United, and the Saudi Pro League club is going to make a significant profit from his departure.
Meanwhile, it is believed that they are eager to make a bid for Wan-Bissaka this month. This comes after they were unsuccessful in their attempt to acquire Tottenham right-back Emerson Royal for a fee of twenty million pounds.According to reports, United would like to get a fee in both scenarios and recoup some of the investment of seventy million pounds that they made in order to acquire Casemiro.
Additionally, Ronaldo has reportedly urged his present club to pursue Casemiro, as reported by The Messenger.
