The Spanish newspaper ‘El Mundo’ published some details that were important for the Cristiano Ronaldo’s break with his former agent Jorge Mendes. Even when he was playing in the Manchester United, the player had friction with the businessman and would have given an ultimatum to the representative, asking him to secure a transfer to Chelsea or Bayern Munich.
Ronaldo wanted his former agent to get a contract with a team that plays in the Champions League. Otherwise, he would break off relations with him. This happened shortly after Jorge Mendes demonstrated his disagreement with some decisions made by the player in recent years. One of them was leaving Real Madrid in 2018.

The Portuguese was quoted to go to Chelsea, much at the wish of the new owner, Todd Boehly. The Bayern CEO also admitted that he had conversations and discussions about the possibility of signing Cristiano Ronaldo. The two clubs withdrew from further negotiations after the Lusitano missed one of Manchester United’s pre-season training sessions.
The relationship between Ronaldo and Jorge Mendes fell apart for good after his interview with presenter Piers Morgan, in which he was harshly critical of Manchester United, which was crucial to his departure from the cluband. The agent even tried a transfer to Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid, but the failure to get a Champions club was decisive for the rupture between the two.
Who took care of his move to Al-Nassr, in Saudi Arabia, was his personal agent and close friend Ricardo Regufe. The same was present at the World Cup to accompany the star and would have been criticized by Cristiano’s teammates on the team. The Portuguese debuted in the Saudi League last Sunday, in the 1-0 victory over Ettifaq.
