Flamengo are on top of the world after winning the Copa Libertadores against Athletico Paranaense, which was the third win in the team’s history.
They have two top strikers in Pedro and Gabigol who are considered among the best in South American football.
After the match, a petition from Brazilian fans went viral on social media calling for the club to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. But the club’s president, Rodolfo Landim, spoke out and his response surprised many.
Does Cristiano Ronaldo have a place in the team?
“I don’t know where they get so much creativity, who will take his place? I saw that Cristiano Ronaldo received an offer of 242 million dollars for a two-year contract. If you divide that by 24 months, that’s about 10 million a month,” Landim said.
After doing the maths, he opined on whether it was worth the financial effort.
“So, we’re talking about a value well above the entire Flamengo payroll for Cristiano Ronaldo to sit on the bench behind Pedro or Gabigol”. It was a statement that some called arrogant but others appreciated it.
Despite Cristiano’s return to the pitch with Manchester United, his future with the club remains uncertain. The English press claims that the Portuguese will be looking to leave the club in the winter transfer window.
Teams like Napoli, Chelsea and Galatasaray emerged as possible destinations, but there is nothing concrete.
What is clear is that his future will not be in Brazil, no matter how much Flamengo fans want him in their team. Cristiano’s priority would be to stay in European football, even if it means reducing his salary to fit the needs of his new team.
