‘I’ve been asked 500 times’ – The Sporting Lisbon coach scolds Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer questions and rules out a move

SPORTING LISBON manager Ruben Amorim has declined to comment further on a potential fall for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The former Portugal international has been repeatedly questioned about the possibility of a January transfer.

But on Monday he made it clear he was fed up with the speculation.

In his press conference after Sporting’s 5-0 Taca da Liga win over Braga, Amorim said: “Ronaldo was in Qatar, they had the opportunity to ask him but they didn’t. I’ve been asked 500 times and I’ve already answered. “

Ronaldo has been linked with a sensational Sporting return since his bid to leave Manchester United in July.

And a move could still potentially be a possibility as the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is currently a free agent.

Ronaldo’s Man Utd contract was ripped up after his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan last month so he’s now on the hunt for a new club.

But few are willing to take on him.

The striker has been linked with a move to Chelsea, although new boss Graham Potter is reportedly opposed to the transfer.

Newcastle, LA Galaxy and Real Madrid have also been linked with a possible nosedive for the disgraced superstar but Saudi Arabia could be his next target.

The president of Saudi Pro-League club Al Nassr is reportedly ready to make the ex-Man Utd star the highest-paid sportsman of all time.

Ronaldo could earn a whopping £173m a year in Saudi Arabia.

But there’s a chance he could decide to stay in Europe.

While Amorim declined to make any further comments on a potential move from Ronaldo, Sporting Lisbon’s sporting director Hugo Viana has hinted it could be a possibility.

He said: “He can decide where he can go. But you never know the future… so whatever he decides, let’s see.”

Ronaldo scored five goals in 31 games for Sporting before joining Man Utd in 2003 aged 18.
