Portugal's star player, the Portuguese footballer, requested that he not be included in the side's latest Serie A match against Udinese. This intensified speculation about whether he would stay in Turin this season. Pep Guardiola could now make a decision about whether to pursue Harry Kane, with Manchester City still interested in a frontman. This leaves the possibility of the former Manchester United talisman being acquired.

Ronaldo's contract has one year left, so the Old Lady may be forced to let go of their No. 7 if they want to recover some of the 99.2 Million transfer fee Real Madrid paid in 2018.
