The Portuguese is not comfortable in Manchester and has contacted Xavi through Piqué, while Jorge Mendes is already negotiating with Laporta.
It may be the bombshell of the winter market and the signing of the century.
Cristiano Ronaldo has offered himself to Barça to sign in this winter market, since he knows that they are looking for a scorer.
The Portuguese contacted Xavi a few days ago, thanks to Gerard Piqué, a friend of both, and in the last hours Jorge Mendes has already got down to work with Joan Laporta to study the viability of the operation.
The good relationship of the Portuguese agent with the Barça president and with Mateu Alemany may be key to the outcome of a signing that more than one at the club thought was a joke.
Cristiano is not happy in his second spell in Manchester, as United is not having a good season and also Ralf Ragnick’s methods do not convince the Portuguese.
Hence, he contacted Piqué, with whom he shared a dressing room in Manchester, to seek an approach to the Camp Nou. The center-back, between the preparation of a new edition of the World Globes and the negotiations with Rakuten to see if they renew their sponsorship with Barça, had time to convey Cristiano’s wish to Xavi Hernández.
“Goal and experience can contribute to us, it is unquestionable,” Xavi commented, although he asked Piqué to ask Cristiano if he is clear about positional play. The Portuguese is reading a book by Laureano Ruiz and has already contacted Joan Vilà, to facilitate his adaptation to the style of the Barça team.
