Ghanaian-based business mogul, Chairman Wontumi has stated his aim to bring Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to the Ghanaian Premier League side, Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
Andy Owusu, the aide to Chairman Wontumi, stated in a confirmation message to Kwame Adinkrah, host of Kumasi-based Pure FM’s ‘Pure Morning Drive’ program, that they have already drafted their proposal letter for the purchase of Ronaldo to Kumasi Asante Kotoko Supporting Club and plan on submitting their bid by November 25, 2022.
The 45-year-old Ghanaian politician and businessman made headlines lately after making a failed $3.1 billion (£2.4 million) offer to purchase English Premier League team Chelsea.
Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, of Portugal, has been released by Manchester United and his contract has been ended.
At 5.30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, United issued a stark 67-word statement for the club icon.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect,” declared the Old Trafford club, who will NOT offer their legendary No7 a pay-off to save themselves £11.5million.
“The club appreciates him for his enormous contribution during two periods at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 games, and wishes him and his family the best of luck in the future.”
