According to reports, Cristiano Ronaldo wants Manchester United to sign Juventus' Federico Chiesa. At Juventus, the Portugal international played alongside the Italian winger. Even though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team is loaded with attacking skill, the veteran manager is looking for a new teammate.
United now has one of the best attacking lineups in all of football.
In the summer transfer window, they re-signed Ronaldo, bringing the Portugal international back to Old Trafford after a 12-year absence.
They also signed Jadon Sancho, a forward who joined from Borussia Dortmund for a reported £73 million.
Solskjaer now has a lot of alternatives.
He also has Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Amad, and Anthony Elanga as alternatives in addition to Sancho and Ronaldo.
There's even Juan Mata, despite the fact that the Spain international is no longer the player he once was.
Despite this, Calciomercato.it reports that Ronaldo wants Chiesa to join him at Old Trafford.
The Italy international joined Juventus in 2020 and has since blossomed in Turin, scoring 15 goals and assisting on 11 occasions last season.
Chiesa is reported to have pleased Ronaldo, and Ronaldo wants United to sign him.
And Ivan Reggiani, who had previously been described as an agent or middleman, has spoken out about the incident.
"I believe he is under severe and significant foreign pressure," he stated.
"He is well-liked over the Channel [in England], and Cristiano Ronaldo is a big fan.
Federico is likely to leave Juventus in the near future, in my opinion. It may potentially reach a hundred million people.
"It's not only United: two or three clubs may be worth €120-130 million."
If United were to get Chiesa through the door, they may have to unload one of their attackers.
Cavani is anticipated to leave the club at the conclusion of the season, having been tipped to leave earlier this year.
He eventually chose to stay rather than go, although Ronaldo has now taken his place in Solskjaer's starting XI.
Over the last 18 months, Martial has struggled to reach his full potential, despite being a France international.
And Amad, who was on the verge of joining Feyenoord, could be allowed to leave on loan.
Meanwhile, Gary Neville believes Ronaldo's decision to storm off the pitch following Saturday's 1-1 draw with Everton will add to Solskjaer's pressure.
He said, "I saw him go away and I can't say I enjoy it."
"Does Cristiano get irritated when he doesn't play?" Yes. Is Cristiano irritated when he fails to score? Yes. Is Cristiano enraged when his team fails to win? Yes, of course.
"We're aware of those facts. He is not required to demonstrate this.
"He walked off the field muttering to himself, which raises the question of what he's saying." Who is it that he is irritated with?
It can only lead to the manager's desk. Such actions - and Cristiano is well aware of this - will put genuine pressure on the manager, adding to the pressure that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already under.
"I believe that is something that can be handled in the next several months."
Cristiano isn't going to score every game, and he might not even play every game."
"However, I believe that if he walks out like that, it would put a lot of pressure on Solskjaer." There's no denying that the manager was the topic of conversation following the game.
"He has this group of players, but they don't have this style of play, they don't have that
