No thanks. Send a message even if it costs us. He can play golf or drop his own salary requirements.

In fact I'd ask for a transfer fee just to spite him.

The only way he leaves is if he accepts less money somewhere else. Not sure his ego will allow that.

He's going to find himself in a very confused situation that's for sure.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's stuck here stinking the place out until the summer.
The Portuguese big 3 should be his aim but as you say his ego would never let it happen.

There is an argument that Dortmund could take him.
They could have him for a season scoring about thirty goals in the league and then sell him for a profit.
:lol: Haaland never scored 30 league goals for Dortmund. I doubt this version of Ronaldo could do it, or get anywhere close.

Think I’d rather the club have 6 million extra towards a striker that will actually contribute to the team then be petty.

He already has an agreement with another club otherwise he wouldn't have released the interview.

So we basically have Napoli, MLS and Qatar/Saudi as the options right now. Imagine the clubs falling over themselves to sign Messi if he was available.
That's a pretty stupid comparison. Clubs are not falling over themselves to sign Pele either. Ronaldo is over two years older than Messi, and two years ago all the top clubs would have taken Ronaldo. Unfortunately, time catches up with everyone, and Ronaldo clearly can't cut it at the top level. He should either retire or go to MLS or Saudi, as he will just embarrass himself further in a top European club. Personally, I wouldn't take a 35 year old Messi either, as we all know where that is headed...

He scored over 20 in the Premier League last year and he is a superb penalty taker so it is not impossible

Buy a rocket and some strong bungee cords. Strap him to said rocket and fire him directly into the sun. Job done.

The only move I can think of at the moment is after an unfit Lukaku getting hurt at the World Cup, then Cristiano on loan to Inter with us paying a chunk of the wages. They play 2 up top, he and Dzeko can split time next to Lautaro and they're in the CL and maybe panicking a bit at being 5th.

Not the sun. Too much glory. Put him orbiting the moon for eternity

Not sure about that. Not many clubs would feel confident signing a contract for an ageing player with a massive ego for £500k+ per week. Ok current Ronaldo is clearly more toxic / less good at football than current Messi but it's still a massive gamble that the twat:good at football ratio doesn't change for Messi as well.
