Inter wanted to sign Ronaldo

The Nerrazurri tried to sign the Portuguese ace when he was still at Sporting Lisbon.

“It was a long time ago and I don’t even remember it well,” Ronaldo told the Corriere dello Sport. “I was 17 or 18 and someone mentioned the possibility of a move to Inter.

“I can’t really recall what they were saying, but we did discuss it. Then Manchester United arrived and I came here.”
