Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) club Lobi Stars have denied reports that they are interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
In a statement released on Tuesday, United announced that Ronaldo has left the club by mutual consent.
The decision to release Ronaldo from his contract was due to his explosive interview with Talk TV, where he slammed the club’s officials and his former United teammates.
Following his departure, a lot of clubs both big and small have been linked to the former Real Madrid star and one of such clubs surprisingly linked to the Portuguese skipper is Lobi Stars.
However, the Makurdi-based club have come out to deny the report.
“Please be informed that #WeAreLobi is yet to make any contact with representatives of #CristianoRonaldo following his release from @ManUtd,”
“We wish him the best & #LobiStars will make no further comment on this.”
Ronaldo is expected to lead Portugal against Black Stars of Ghana in their opening game at the Qatar World Cup.
He was not in action when the 2016 European Champions defeated the Super Eagles of Nigeria 4-0 in their final warm up game in Lisbon before heading to Qatar.
