Ronaldo Jr dazzles on Juventus debut

Ronaldo Jr dazzles on Juventus debut

However, according to the Daily Mirror, Mourinho told United transfer chiefs not to sign Ronaldo following his Real exit.

Ronaldo moved to Juventus from Real Madrid in a €100 million deal in July, ending his nine-year stay at the Bernabeu.

Manchester United are now looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Burnley away from home on Sunday afternoon.

Ronaldo has been in the Spanish capital since leaving Old Trafford in 2009 and it has been reported that Mourinho urged United not to re-sign the forward. Mourinho's main aim was to bring in a centre-back, with Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld and Leicester City's Harry Maguire significant targets.

Ronaldo has been left out of European champions Portugal's squad for the Nations League and friendly matches in the next week at his own request to focus on Juventus.

United will come up against their former hero in October when Ronaldo returns to Old Trafford with Juventus.

Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Mourinho said: "Difficult for us, hard for them [the other teams]".

Despite the disappointing summer and rocky start to the season, Mourinho has insisted he remains one of the game's greatest managers.

"To be really good offensively you have to be solid at the back, all the best teams are, because that is what allows you the confidence to take risks". "I knew that because finishing second last season was hard".

Mourinho is said to have felt that handing Real Madrid £90m in transfer fees for a player who would also demand wages in excess of £500,000-a-week made little sense when his top priority for the summer had been defensive reinforcements. If I say it again now it is not because of two defeats.
