Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo exchanged messages with Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti in the final days of the summer market, we have learned.
Last month, Cristiano Ronaldo was linked with Napoli to leave Old Trafford.
Spalletti then opened the door to the operation, saying he ‘dreamed’ of working with the Portuguese.
And Italian journalist Alessandro Alciato reports that in the final days of the transfer window, Ronaldo sent a Whatsapp message to Spalletti.
“Do you want to train me? Do you want to do this? Are you ready?” asked Ronaldo.
The Italian’s response would have been in line with what he has always said in public: ‘I’m ready. If you come, I’ll be happy to coach you’.
But in the end, no agreement could be reached.
