Nigerian Club Lobi Stars Rule Out Move For Man United Outcast Ronaldo

Nigerian side Lobi Stars have ruled out a move for Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo in what appears to be banter, maintaining that the club have not made any contact with the player or his representatives.

The former Real Madrid forward’s contract was terminated by Manchester United earlier in the week after the Portuguese interview with journalist Piers Morgans where he lashed out at Manchester United, Erik Ten Hag, and others.

Reports have since then suggested that the Makurdi-based side were eyeing the 37-year-old but the club have denied such links.

“Please be informed that #WeAreLobi is yet to make any contact with representatives of #CristianoRonaldo following his release from Manchester United,” the Nigeria Professional Football League said in a tweet on their verified handle late Wednesday. “We wish him the best & #LobiStars will make no further comment on this.”

Since Ronaldo’s contract termination, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has attracted interest from several clubs across the world. 14th-tier English football league side AFC Crewe were among the first to make an offer for the striker.

The non-league AFC Crewe offered the talisman a £35-a-week record deal, a sharp contrast from the reported £500,000-a-week he had with Manchester United.

While Ronaldo is with the Portuguese team for the World Cup in Qatar, he is expected to make a decision about his career after the tournament in the Middle East nation.
