At the beginning of January, the news that they broke up came like a bolt from the blue. Now we know why.
An excellent Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo he couldn’t forgive not getting what he himself most wanted. That’s why they met with a long-time agent Jorge Mendeswho he even referred to as a second father several times (Ronaldo’s father died when he was 20 years old due to problems related to alcoholism), broke up on business.
“Either you guarantee me a transfer to Chelsea or Bayern, or we will part business,” Ronaldo allegedly threatened Mendes in the transfer window, when it was already clear that Ronaldo was no longer a member of Manchester United, reports El Mundo. Mendes failed to secure a transfer to a club playing in the Champions League, so Ronaldo actually made the threat a reality. He called Ricardo Regufe and transferred to Saudi Al Nassr, who offered him an astronomical contract with at least 70 million euros in annual salary.
The Spanish media also reports that Mendes’s partner is behind the breakup Georgina Rodriguez and his relatives.
