Former Barcelona Sporting director, Toni Freixa, has tipped Cristiano Ronaldo to join Barcelona.

 

Freixa is opening the door for Ronaldo’s possible signing despite the Portuguese being a Real Madrid icon and unpopular among Barcelona fans.

 

Freixa, who was director during Joan Laporta’s first spell as Barcelona president and who stood in the 2021 elections, believes that the current state of the club makes Ronaldo a possibility, however slight.

 

“If there’s a time for such madness then it’s now,” he told Beleve’s ‘La Porteria’ when asked about the possibility of Ronaldo switching Manchester United for Barcelona.

 

Speaking about Barcelona’s new manager, Xavi, Freixa said, “He has come with this plan of fining players.

 

“I think he is trying to convince them of his plan and of his way of playing. I think he wants them to enjoy their football.”

  3. Thanks for the update Climaxtrend Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne, has claimed they trained for only 10 minutes, before they beat Manchester United 2-0 before the international break.

    The Premier League champions completely dominated their rivals despite the low scoreline at Old Trafford.

    An Eric Bailly own goal and a Bernardo Silva strike sealed all three points for Pep Guardiola’s men.

    De Bruyne has now claimed Guardiola initially had no idea how to prepare for United.

    “The day before a game we usually train tactically, based on how the opponent plays.

    “But before United, Pep said: ‘We don’t know how they are going to play. We shall see’. And we stopped training after 10 minutes or so.

    “Often Pep knows how the opponent is going to play. This time he didn’t know, so he didn’t know what to do.

    “We have done what we always do, but he didn’t know beforehand if they would play with five at the back, or with four, or with a diamond in the middle, or with three up front,” he told the MidMid podcast.
