The Monterrey CF fans wanted Cristiano Ronaldo, and once they had the chance to talk with the club's Chairman, Jose Antonio 'Tato' Noriega, about bringing him to the team soon, the fans were denied. Fans were waiting for Monterrey to play a match in the United States when suddenly they saw Noriega close to the stands. Fans chanted Ronaldo, and Noriega said, "It's impossible. If the fans raise money, it might happen (laughs).” This gives an assumption that the Mexican club will struggle to make the signing of Ronaldo happen, which is expected because of the salary he earns in Saudi Arabia with Al Nassr.

Monterrey was in the United States to play in the CONCACAF Champions Cup semi-finals against Colombus Crew at the Lower.com Field in Ohio, USA. Monterrey fans would've wished to have Ronaldo in this game because the Mexican side lost 2-1 in the first leg of the tie. Next Wednesday, Monterrey will play Columbus Crew at the Estadio BBVA for the second leg. Monterrey is on this stage of the competition after defeating Lionel Messi's Inter Miami 5-2 on aggregate in the quarterfinals.

The rumors of Ronaldo joining Monterrey started to increase these past few weeks coincidentally after the match against Inter Miami. Monterrey fans were booing Messi while Inter Miami visited Mexico at the Estadio BBVA. Messi heard boos from the Mexican fans and even chants of Ronaldo's name. From there, Ronaldo to Monterrey started to grow as the Portuguese were reportedly feeling unappreciated by Saudi Arabia due to the bad treatment from opposition fans and the way the football is lived there. Monterrey fans celebrated eliminating Messi's Inter Miami from the CONCACAF Champions Cup by doing the SIUU.
