Lobi Stars rule out move for Ronaldo

Lobi Stars say they have not made any contact with free agent Cristiano Ronaldo or his representatives.

The 37-year-old recently saw his contract at Manchester United terminated by mutual consent after criticising the club and manager Erik Ten Hag in a no-holds-barred interview with Piers Morgan.

In what looks like a banter, Lobi Stars tweeted on Wednesday night that the former Real Madrid man is not in their plans.

“Please be informed that #WeAreLobi is yet to make any contact with representatives of #CristianoRonaldo following his release from Manchester United,” the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side said.

“We wish him the best & #LobiStars will make no further comment on this.”

Since Ronaldo’s contract termination, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has attracted interest from several clubs across the world. He is reportedly linked to Newcastle and Chelsea.

The Portuguese will decide his future after his last shot at the World Cup in Qatar.
