Ronaldo reveals he was close to his transfer summer move to Manchester City but Sir Alex Ferguson’s intervened at the last moment to change his decision back in 2021.
However, he stated in his interview with Piers Morgan he had no regret coming back to his former club, Manchester United.
“Well, honestly, it [moving to City] was close. They spoke a lot and Guardiola said two weeks ago that they tried hard to have me.” Ronaldo said.
“But, as you know, my history is in Manchester United. Your heart, you’re feeling the way you did before, and it made the difference. And of course, as well, Sir Alex Ferguson. It was conscious decision because the heart speaks loud in that moment”. He stated.
The 37-year-old also attributed Ferguson to being the key in making such decisive decision.
“And as you mentioned before, Sir Alex Ferguson was the key. I spoke with him… He said to me that, ‘It’s impossible for you to come to Manchester City’. And I said ‘OK, Boss’.
