Cristiano Ronaldo Has Been Tipped To Make A Sensational Move To Barcelona

Toni Freixa was asked if Barca should make an attempt to sign the Portuguese megastar, and the ex-board member agreed with the outlandish suggestion.

“If there is a time to do this madness it is now,” in a quote published on SportWitness via AS.

It would be a stunning U-turn from Ronaldo should he decide to leave Old Trafford so soon, and has only just signed a two-year deal with the club following a summer departure from Juventus.

He is also Real Madrid’s record goalscorer with an incredible 450 goals in 438 appearances across all competitions for Los Blancos in an outstanding nine-year spell in the Spanish capital.

The 36-year-old also won 4 Champions League titles, 2 La Ligas, 2 Spanish Cups and 2 Spanish Supercups during his time at the Bernabeu.

But the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has reportedly been shocked at the drop in standards at United, and is not happy with the inner workings of the team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United have also fallen short of challenging at the top end of the Premier League so far this campaign, and are nine points adrift of Chelsea after 11 games.

The Red Devils are facing a battle to progress out of a relatively kind Champions League group and have already been dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Aston Villa.

Barcelona are facing their own struggles on the pitch and sit ninth in La Liga – nine points behind surprise leaders Real Sociedad with a game in hand.

New boss Xavi and his current squad are back in action on 20th November against Espanyol at the Camp Nou.

In that same article by AS, Freixa is backing the legendary former midfielder to turn things around at the club.

“He wants to convince of them of his ideas, make them play in a certain way and for the players to enjoy themselves.”

“They will play well and he will create a good dynamic there. I don’t think there is going to be a war between coach and the players.”
