It was supposed to happen after the Portuguese international agreed with Fenerbahce President Ali Koc. The transfer market in Turkey is still open until Thursday. His contract with Nottingham Forest expired late in the transfer window. It gives Fenerbahce until then to reach an agreement with Manchester United on a fee. According to Ajansspor, only the final details were needed before the move could be made official. In the midst of transfer rumors, Turkish media reported on Thursday that Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo had agreed in principle to join Fenerbahce. Ronaldo agreed to terms with the club for a fee of 23 million Euros ($2,28,04,385). It was part of a three-year contract with a one-year option, with 8 million dollars contingent on his performance. However, according to recent reports, Ronaldo ended up staying with Manchester United despite being on the verge of joining Fenerbahce, as reported by Caughtoffside. According to reports, the 37-year-old met with manager Jorge Jesus, who persuaded his compatriot to join the Super Lig. Koc is said to have been trying for days to get the Portuguese star to wear the yellow-dark blue jersey. Michael Regan/Getty Images contributed to this image.

The transfer window in Europe’s top leagues has now closed, but the Yellow Canaries were confident of landing the Manchester United striker ahead of other suitors. Fenerbahce has also signed Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, according to ESPN. Despite the fact that the move to Fenerbahce did not go through, it demonstrates how desperate Ronaldo is to leave Old Trafford. Koc also acquired global superstar Mesut Ozil, who had previously played alongside Ronaldo at Real Madrid. The club has won its last three Premier League games, with manager Erik ten Hag using Ronaldo as a substitute. On Thursday night, the summer transfer window closed. The relocation could take place in January 2023 or next summer. But he still has a year left on his contract, and Ronaldo, who has mostly served as a substitute for Ten Hag, appears destined to see out the rest of his contract before leaving.
