Cristiano Ronaldo at OM: why the rumor still swells

RONALDO. The rumor ensuring that Cristiano Ronaldo could join Olympique de Marseille and that OM are seriously studying the question has been tenacious since the beginning of the summer. With arguments that make you dream without being very substantiated…

Cristiano Ronaldo at Olympique de Marseille, some OM supporters believe it. On social networks as in many cookie-cutter articles published on the Web, the rumor has been persistent throughout the summer of 2022. And while the transfer window is coming to an end, the noises have been further amplified since last weekend, making the Canebière believe the impossible. What makes you believe in a miracle this time among the Marseillais : Cristiano Ronaldo still seems so frustrated at Manchester United, the club of his explosion in the early 2000s, which he found last year.

After a catastrophic start to the season (defeat at Old Trafford against Brighton for the launch of the Premier League then humiliation at Brentford last week), the new Manchester coach Erik Ten Hag wanted to cause an electric shock for the derby against Liverpool on Monday : exit Ronaldo, on the bench, thanks to Marcus Rashford! And the worst thing for CR7 is that this strategy paid off with a 2-1 victory for the Red Devils thanks to a goal from Rashford himself. Entering at the very end of the match, Ronaldo will not have taken part in the triumph.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s emotional reunion with United quickly turned to disappointment last year. Despite forty honorable games and 24 achievements, CR7 did not really manage to convince in a hellish season for the Red Devils who finished 6th in the English championship and were unable to qualify for the Champions League. This is also, from the start, the main argument of the happy omens: Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester for a club that will play the C1 this season and the number of clubs that can (or want) to afford the star are very few. numerous. Which would give, still according to these prophecies, every chance for OM, who snatched their qualification thanks to a very good end to the season last spring. The Mancunians’ match against Liverpool on Monday August 22 only brought a little more water to their mill.

After all, if OM managed to attract Alexis Sanchez, one of the surprises of this transfer window, why not Ronaldo? Experts like former players have also given voice in recent days to try to validate this thesis. Jean-Charles de Bono, former OMTV consultant, did not hesitate to write on Tuesday August 23 that « several reasons » could lead to believe in a transfer from Ronaldo to OM, on his FootbalclubdeMarseille site. He even mentions a « study which is done to see what Ronaldo could bring to the club financially ». And to take the example of the transfer of Lionel Messi to PSG which would have been « amortized in two months » thanks to marketing and derivative products. « Today I think OM have got it into their heads to study Ronaldo’s marketing. All the fans would like to see Ronaldo with the OM shirt. It gives me hope. If the management calculates well his move, they can amortize his transfer quite quickly, » he concluded.

These comments complemented the calls from the foot of several former OM glories to Cristiano Ronaldo this week, from Mamadou Niang to Samir Nasri via Djibril Cissé. On Twitter the former Auxerre striker, who rubbed shoulders with Ronaldo in the Premier League, did not hesitate to challenge him: « Cristiano, come my friend. I will take care of you ».

Despite these arguments, it is nevertheless doubtful that OM have the backs strong enough to afford a Cristiano Ronaldo who displays claims of around 30 million euros per year. The logic of this transfer window, already well advanced for OM (10 recruits including Alexis Sanchez), has also turned to defense, with the imminent arrival of Eric Bailly from … Manchester United. And it is undoubtedly the journalist from Provence, Alexandre Jacquin, who seems the most reliable in this analysis of the fantasy. He assured it on Twitter this Tuesday: « OM never opened the Ronaldo file »! End point of the crazy rumor?
