Ronaldo willing to take pay cut to return to Man Utd



According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Cristiano Ronaldo is tempted by a return to Manchester United and is willing to take a pay cut to play with the Red Devils again.

The contract of the Portuguese star expires in June 2022, but the paper reports Ronaldo is considering leaving Juventus as the season hasn’t gone as planned.

The Old Lady are also in financial troubles, which is the main reason they decided to launch a Super League along with some of the most storied clubs in Europe, but the project lasted just 48 hours.

La Gazzetta dello Sport points out Solskjaer has recently admitted he would like to see Cristiano Ronaldo return to the red side of Manchester, while Real Madrid President Florentino Perez played down rumours of a possible return to Madrid.

Ronaldo is on a €31m-a-year deal at Juventus and needs to take a pay cut to return to Manchester United 12 years after his exit.

The reports suggest the 36-year-old would accept to take a pay cut to return to Old Trafford but wouldn’t accept a salary below €20m-a-year.

Juventus need at least €29m from the Portuguese’s sale and would be willing to swap CR7 with Paul Pogba, although the Red Devils don’t seem open to completing such a deal.

Ghana disqualified from 4x100m World Relays Final



Ghana’s 4x100m men’s relay team were disqualified from the World Relays final after breaking changeover rules.

The team initially finished third in the final behind Brazil and South Africa with a time of 39.11s but minutes after the race and time confirmations, drama ensued as Brazil and Ghana were disqualified.

Ghana’s team was disqualified after breaking changeover rules. The final changeover took place outside the authorized zone.

Ghana’s disqualification came as a result of a late changeover – Rule TR 24.7 between the pair of Azamati and Joseph Manu.

In the process, it means South Africa, Italy, Japan and Denmark were the only four out of eight competing teams to record times in the men’s 4x100m.

On a slightly brighter side, the decision is subject to an appeal from team Ghana.

The quartet of Benjamin Azamati, Safo-Antwi, Joseph Paul-Amoah and Joseph Manu simultaneously have already secured Ghana a place at the Olympic Games and the World Athletic Championship in the heats on Saturday.
