Piers Morgan, the Former CNN host, has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo rejected a €130 million offer from a Saudi Arabian club to leave Manchester United in the summer.
FS News reports that Ronaldo was dropped from Erik ten Hag’s squad for their 1-1 draw with Chelsea last Saturday.
That sanction came after Ronaldo refused to come on as a substitute in the latter stages of their midweek win over Tottenham.
Former United defender, Gary Neville, has urged the two parties to “end their relationship”.
Morgan has now suggested that Ronaldo could have left ahead of this season.
He slammed reports that the 37-year-old has attracted no interest from clubs is a “lie leaked by United management”.
Morgan tweeted: “More lies leaked by United management to damage him…@Cristiano received an offer of 130m euros to . for one season in Saudi but turned it down.”
