Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the players who grew up with Manchester United. Although it has been predicted that his move to Real Madrid, but there are many parties who were quite surprised by the decision, including Luis Nani.
For information, Cristiano Ronaldo defended Manchester United in the period 2003 to 2009. While Luis Nani joined the Red Devils in 2007, meaning he had the opportunity to play with Ronaldo at Old Trafford.
During the period 2007 to 2009, Luis Nani had a special relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo. Both of them looked quite familiar as friends because they came from the same country, Portugal, and joined from the same club, Sporting CP.
Nani told me that Cristiano Ronaldo had told him about plans to leave Manchester United.
“Everyone has good friends who make them more comfortable. Ronaldo and Anderson are a source of my support,”
“The last few days, Ronaldo told us openly. He said, ‘I’ve been here six or seven years now, I think that’s enough’, “said the man who is now strengthening Orlando City, as reported by The Sun.
Indeed, in the end in 2009, Ronaldo officially broke the world transfer record with his move to the Santiago Bernabeu. It’s just that the former Sporting Lisbon player claimed he could not believe what Ronaldo said.
Not without reason, Nani felt that at that time Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance was still very good along with the Red Devils. Indeed, in his last season, Ronaldo scored 18 goals in 33 matches in the Premier League.
In the same season, the Red Devils also did not appear to show a decrease in performance, Sir Alex’s troops are still competing in the hunt for the title. Nani was surprised because the move actually occurred in a year that she did not expect.
“He also always said ‘I’ll think about it,’ but we never thought it happened so fast. After we won the league in my second year, he left. Ronaldo has a great season, so we were surprised, “he said.
Nani was staying at Manchester United, he just left the Premier League club in 2015.
