Agent: Real Madrid star Ronaldo could easily be playing in Serie A

Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes says Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo could easily be running around in Serie A.

Mendes recalled the interest in Ronaldo while he was still in Portugal with Sporting Lisbon.

“Yes, it's true before moving to Manchester United Ronaldo was a step from joining an Italian club, but I am not going to tell you which one,” Mendes revealed.

“I am certain of one thing and that is that Italian football missed the opportunity to sign one of the absolute greatest footballers in 2003.

“Cristiano is a player who will leave a mark like Pele.”
