Marcelo 'desperate to join Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus'

  • Juventus maintain 100% Serie A start but concerns remain about misfiring Ronaldo

The Mirror reports that Jose Mourinho told Manchester United not to make a move for Cristiano Ronaldo when the Portuguese superstar made a decision to leave Real Madrid.

Ronaldo moved to Juventus in the summer following nine years at Real Madrid, and has been getting used to life in northern Italy.

The 33-year-old Ronaldo will reportedly miss a friendly against World Cup runners-up Croatia on September 6 and a Nations League game on September 10 against Italy.

The Portugal captain was repeatedly linked with a return to Old Trafford after leaving the club in 2009, but Mourinho said his return was never a possibility.

Colombia centre-back Yerry Mina, 23, picked Everton ahead of Manchester United because Toffees boss Marco Silva called him, and Red Devils counterpart Jose Mourinho did not.

The Portuguese manager's stance ended up backfiring as United chiefs failed to deliver on those defensive targets this summer, with the Manchester club missing out on Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Diego Godin.

Ronaldo has now gone 23 shots without a goal since joining Juve, although it is hard to imagine his goalless streak continuing for much longer.


It was reported that Juventus' club value ballooned by around £250million due to Ronaldo's arrival at the Old Lady.

Ronaldo's stunning overhead bicycle kick for Real Madrid against Juventus has been voted UEFA's goal of the season. "Absolutely top. But they are going to have two very hard matches against us".

"The teams that are really, really good offensively are the teams that are very very solid from the back".

"I knew this was going to be hard because I also knew that last season was very, very hard". Valencia is also one of the top four teams in Spain and that says everything.

"Two defeats are two defeats".

"We want to play the way we did in the first half against Tottenham", he said. "After that it will be to win against Watford".
