Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has described speculation linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a move to Manchester City as “nonsense”.
Ronaldo is believed to be exploring ways to leave Juventus this summer and City are an option for him.
The 36-year-old’s agent has reportedly offered him to United’s city rivals, who saw their number target Harry Kane make a u-turn on his future on Wednesday.
Ronaldo spent six trophy-laden years at Old Trafford, before leaving for Real Madrid.
Although some observers have suggested Ronaldo would tarnish his legacy were he to sign for City, Solskjaer cannot envisage his former teammate making a highly contentious move.
“I do not read newspapers. I know how much nonsense is written there, anyway,” Solskjaer said today.
