Roma manager José Mourinho has described Manchester United’s acquisition of Cristiano Ronaldo’s services as a perfect deal for all parties involved.
The Portuguese also hinted that his compatriot’s decision to leave Juventus opened the door for Roma to win Serie A this season.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri revealed in his post-match press conference that the Portuguese captain has asked to leave the club.
And it looked like the 36-year-old was heading for Manchester City, but it was Manchester United who ultimately landed the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Asked about the deal at a press conference on Saturday, the Roma manager said: “What I can say is basic, it makes sense. If Juventus are happy, if Ronaldo is happy and Manchester United are happy, then it’s a perfect deal.
“There is no need to talk about Cristiano Ronaldo. He made history, he won trophies for 20 years. There is nothing more to say.
“A change in terms of the Scudetto with Juventus losing Cristiano Ronaldo?” This question is for [Inter boss] Simone Inzaghi, not for me. ”
Mourinho previously told talkSPORT that he hopes Ronaldo leaves Juventus, saying: “He should leave Italy now and leave me alone!”
