Having achieved everything in the game that he can bar a FIFA World Cup win, Cristiano Ronaldo has nothing left to prove. However, for many in Portugal, his limited time spent in the domestic league means there is something missing from his career. Ronaldo came to prominence at the Sporting academy, playing for one of the largest clubs in the country. However, he moved on as a teenager to Manchester United before he really established himself in the Liga. Now, though, that might chance – there is talk that Ronaldo would accept a move back to Portugal to escape his Juventus nightmare.
As recently noted, Tottenham were believed to be very keen on a move for Julien Nagelsmann. The German coach ticked every box on the list, and was seen as the dream appointment – someone who could rebuild Spurs, field a young team of ambitious stars, and create an environment where success was truly possible. However, the news of the RB Leipzig coach moving on opened up another exciting opportunity – one that already looks like it has ended in failure.
