Former Chelsea star Frank Leboeuf has suggested why Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has ended talks to sign Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Until Friday afternoon, Manchester City were in pole position to acquire the services of the Portuguese international from Juventus.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri announced on Friday that Cristiano Ronaldo would leave the Italian giants.
Frank told ESPN that Ronaldo’s age and being a Real Madrid legend must have dissuaded Guardiola from making the deal.
“My question mark is more tactical. I’m surprised Guardiola wants a player of this age and also a former Real Madrid player.
But he also just signed Grealish. I think Ronaldo likes to go into left space even though he can play as a striker, ”he said.
