No one’s buying Sky Sports’ latest update on Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United

There's a natural skepticism

Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United?

Red Devils fans have been burned on transfer gossip many times before, so naturally, they’re taking these Cristiano Ronaldo reports with a pinch of salt.

They’ve already watched the Antoine Griezmann dream shatter into a million pieces because of Atletico Madrid’s pesky transfer ban and now there are reports flying around that suggest Ronaldo could be coming back to Old Trafford.

Not all of these stories are created equal though, and there are a few that are starting convince some folk that this one might actually materialise. Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio’s report increased the speculation considerably.

Now Sky Sports News are ‘reporting’ that Ronaldo is ‘interested’ in a ‘possible’ move back to Old Trafford.

At least, that’s what ‘Sky sources’ understand.

With that Griezmann wound still fresh and that Ronaldo carrot being cruelly dangled in front of their faces, Manchester United fans just can’t allow themselves to get excited by the update.

A whole heap of the club’s supporters, and fans of the beautiful game in general, are calling bullshit on this particular report.
