Details leaked about Cristiano Ronaldo’s possible return to Sporting CP

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s future is up in the air. The Portuguese star is a free agent, as he has yet to join a new team after leaving Manchester United.

Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr is reportedly interested in acquiring his services and they have offered 200 million euros per season, including salary and advertising agreements, in order to sign the Portugal captain.

However, according to The Sun, Ronaldo‘s cars were spotted in his hometown, where they were parked on the outskirts of the city of Lisbon.

Ronaldo transferred from Manchester his Cadillac Escalade, which is valued at 180,000 dollars and was given away to him as a birthday present by his partner Georgina Rodriguez, as well as his Bentley Flying Spur, worth 350,000 dollars.

His mother’s dream

Following his decision to transfer the cars to Lisbon, rumors sparked about his potential return to former club Sporting CP.

It should be noted that his mother, Dolores Aveiro, said some time ago that her dream was to see her son feature again for Sporting CP before retiring.

However, the Portuguese star is now focused on the 2022 World Cup, as his national team is set to take on Switzerland in the Round of 16 on Tuesday.

Don Lemon faces backlash for saying USMNT deserve more money than the Women’s National team

Don Lemon remarked that male athletes make more money than female athletes because men’s sports make more money than women’s sports, which sparked a heated discussion between Lemon and his CNN co-anchors.

Infuriating his co-anchors Kaitlin Collins and Poppy Harlow, Lemon made his remarks during a “CNN This Morning” story on the salary discrepancy between the US men’s and US women’s national soccer teams. They contended that male athletes earn more because the media provides men’s sports a wider platform.

Lemon countered with the claim that because men’s sports are more in demand in our “capitalist system,” male athletes get more money despite his insistence that “I’m not a sexist.”

Harry Enten, a CNN data analyst, was in the process of explaining the wage differences between the two teams when the dispute started.

Lemon stated that the argument about whether women should be paid more was meaningless despite the fact that the US women’s national soccer team has achieved greater success than the men’s team in terms of games won and having won several world championships, something the men’s team has yet to do.

“I know everyone’s gonna hate me, but the men’s team makes more money. If they make more money then they should get more money.” The two female co-anchors tried to interrupt him. “The men’s team makes more money because people are more interested in the men!” he added.

The debate got heated between the hosts

Harlow attributed the declining popularity of women’s sports to “big media companies.” “I have big issue with this, guys, WNBA – same thing’s happening to them. Until big media companies, big tech companies, advertisers invest and put them on their airwaves more and allow people to see it more and gain more fans, then you will push towards more equality,” she said.

“But if they are blocked in so many ways and not invested in as much, they don’t even have a shot,” she added.

Lemon resisted giving in. He declared, “I’m not sexist. I grew up the only boy in a family of all women.” He then said to Harlow “I understand what you’re saying, but not everybody honestly has the same skill, not everybody has the same interest in the sport.”

“I think that women should be paid more, I really do, but if the men -” Collins interrupted him, saying, “You’re right that not everyone has the same skills cause the women are better skilled.”

“Well the women are better skilled against better other women, but if the women played the men, they wouldn’t be winning the way that they win,” Lemon replied. “I’m not even going to get into that argument,” ended a frustrated Harlow.

There he will undergo a thorough examination to determine the state of his vital organs.

Meanwhile, his daughter Kely Nascimento has written on social media in order to attempt to allay fears for the worst.

“He is in hospital, checking his medication. Some of my siblings are visiting him in Brazil.

“We appreciate the concern and love.”

Russian Footballer got offered a sex marathon of 16 hours by a porn actress if he’d scored five goals

Russian footballer Aleksandr Kokorin was once offered a lengthy sex session with a professional in the adult movie business if he scored 10 goals during the 2015 season.

“If before the end of the championship [Russian Super League] Alexander Kokorin scores five goals, I promise to hold a 16-hour sex marathon with him as a thank you.”
