From Arsenal to PSG- Clubs that Almost signed Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has donned in three of the biggest club jerseys in three top European leagues, but his career path could have been entirely different. Let's have a look at the list of clubs who almost signed Cristiano Ronaldo at the start of his career

AC Milan

 After a glory-laden spell at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo fancied a fresh challenge elsewhere in 2018. Unsurprisingly, he wasn’t short of offers to join a new club. Among them was AC Milan, who were very keen on the prospect.

 Arsenal

 Cristiano Ronaldo was perhaps the one that got away for Arsene Wenger, having come so close. Had he joined Arsenal in 2003, it could have changed everything for player and club.

PSG

 When Cristiano Ronaldo was set to leave Real Madrid in 2018, many saw Paris Saint-Germain as his ideal location. Not only did they offer him a competitive platform but could also pay his wages.

Liverpool

 The Reds were keen on adding Cristiano Ronaldo to their ranks after watching him develop at Sporting CP. All seemed in order until they discovered the 18-year-old’s wage demands.


Barcelona

 The Portuguese announced that the Blaugrana were among the clubs interested in him before he joined Manchester United.

Manchester City

City looked set to seal a sensational transfer for Ronaldo, but United figures swooped in at the last minute to persuade him to return to Old Trafford
