Cristiano Ronaldo and Jorge Mendes have called it quits. The two men were cold since the interview given by the striker to Piers Morgan.
According to the elements obtained by Jn.pt, the paths of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jorge Mendes have separated due to differences in point of view. The pair are said to have parted ways following the striker’s interview with Piers Morgan, which preceded his departure from Manchester United. The player would have expressed the desire to deviate from the path that the super agent had imagined for him, for the rest of his career. He would have asked him to regain control over his future, once the contacts with Al-Nassr were confirmed to him. Jorge Mendes did not participate in the discussions with the Saudi formation which led to his record signing.
Only 1 goal scored in 10 Premier League games
A small clap of thunder, while the two men were until then inseparable. The adviser does not seem to have managed to find a club in Europe for the striker since last summer. It must be said that the player has not given the best image of himself in recent months, trying to leave a club that counted on him and with whom he did not achieve convincing performances. In 10 Premier League appearances, the native of Funchal has only managed to score 1 goal. Not enough to convince the other teams to match his salary to bring him in.
Ronaldo is expected to receive €75m a year from Al Nassr
CR7 then had a disappointing World Cup. The player was again content with 1 goal, scored from the penalty spot. And he finished the competition in the role of a substitute, after a clash with his coach, Fernando Santos (which the technician however denied). And the player finally decided to end his European career, accepting an incredible offer from the Saudi club Al Nassr. It should allow him to collect 75 million euros per season, between salary and advertising contracts. Emoluments that flirt with those of Kylian Mbappé at PSG.
Cristiano Ronaldo therefore stopped his European adventure on a total of 949 games, 701 goals and 223 assists. To which must be added his 196 caps and 118 goals.
As for Jorge Mendes, he will now have to content himself with advising Bernardo Silva, Ruben Bias, Joao Cancelo (Manchester City), Darwin Nunez (Liverpool), or even Joao Felix (Atlético Madrid). Just that ! His career as a players’ agent is therefore not really threatened…
