The Campeonato Brasileiro Série A club has expressed an interest in signing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, according to a report in the Brazilian publication Veja.
The current Copa Libertadores champions are negotiating a three-month contract with the former Manchester United attacker.
In preparation for the FIFA Club World Cup, which takes place in February, it is believed that the Brazilian team is looking to add players to their roster.
Additionally, the report asserts that Flamengo has not yet initiated negotiations with Ronaldo’s representatives. The chiefs of the Brazilian team are reportedly in talks with the sponsors of the club to obtain a financing package.
After mutually agreeing to terminate his contract with Manchester United on Tuesday, Cristiano Ronaldo is currently without a team. The footballing legend has had a turbulent season, scoring just once in ten Premier League games.
However, following his explosive interview with journalist Piers Morgan, the Portugal international found himself in hot water. The superstar from his time with Real Madrid criticized manager Erik ten Hag and the club’s owners.
Additionally, former Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick and the club’s young players were targeted by Cristiano Ronaldo. He also made fun of former teammates Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney.
After the FIFA World Cup 2022 is over, the superstar from Portugal is expected to make a decision about his future.
Portugal defeated Ghana 3-2 in their World Cup opener, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored from the spot.
Manchester United is reportedly looking to sign a former flop to replace Ronaldo. The exile from Barcelona has been identified by the Red Devils as a potential replacement for the Portuguese star.
Prior to joining Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven in 2015, Depay had a forgettable time there from 2015 to 2017. Following his much-anticipated move to the Theater of Dreams, the international from the Netherlands failed to live up to his promise.
Before being sent to Olympique Lyonnais, the versatile attacker was only at Old Trafford for one and a half years. He appeared in 53 games for the Red Devils, netting just seven goals and assisting six others.
After his contract with Lyon ended in 2021, the Dutchman left for Barcelona on his own accord. Despite being the Blaugrana’s leading scorer with 13 goals this season, he has struggled for playing time.
