Milan, Di Marzio: “Ronaldo was offered for Leao”
One of the longest negotiations this season was the one related to the missed transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo. The former Real Madrid star has been looking for accommodation that would allow him to play in the Champions League for the entire 3 months of the summer session. Over and over again his agent, Jorge Mendes, proposed him to various teams especially for a welcome return to Italy. The multi-billionaire agent first of all proposed him to Napoli, with an exchange where Osimhen should have been included and then to Milan. Below, the words of Gianluca Di Marzio on this negotiation: “The deal fell through immediately because Milan did not want Leao to leave. AC Milan’s strategy is based on young people. So, he tried it with Napoli. Jorge Mendes and De Laurentiis have an excellent relationship. They talk for several days and there was a moment when Jorge Mendes offered De Laurentiis 100 million to bring Osimhen to Manchester United and in exchange give Ronaldo on loan to Napoli. Napoli replied that Manchester United would have to pay Ronaldo’s full salary and give 120 million for Osimhen. This offer never arrived, however “.
