Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid – his six possible moves revealed

first_img 6 1. Manchester United – A dream move for both parties. Ronaldo enjoyed his six-year spell at Old Trafford and has often spoke of his love for the club, telling the Telegraph in 2014: ‘I love Manchester. Everyone knows that. Manchester is in my heart’. He played under compatriot Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid and the Red Devils could afford his services. With his age in mind, would he really want to risk tarnishing his first spell in England? On the other hand, he could be the ideal replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic… 6 Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly stunned Real Madrid – and the world of football – by telling the Spanish giants he wants out.The 32-year-old is ready to leave the Liga and Champions League winners this summer after being hit with tax evasion charges – READ MORE HERE.Ronaldo has been accused of defrauding the Spanish tax office of 14.7million euros over image rights payments – allegations he strenuously denied – and he is said to be ‘outraged’ by the treatment he has received.If these reports are to be believed, there are only a handful of clubs in world football that could afford the Portuguese star, who is currently with his national team at the Confederations Cup.He only signed a new five-year deal with Los Blancos in December and interested parties would have to break the bank to sign him before agreeing to his eye-watering wage demands.talkSPORT has taken a look a possible destinations for Ronaldo should he leave the Bernabeu. Given the size of the club, where does he go from here? Many of his options will be a step down for a player who remains at the top of his game. Click the right arrow, above, to see six possible options for Cristiano Ronaldo and comment with your thoughts below… 5. Chinese Super League – A move that would truly rock world football. The Sun reported last week he will be offered £105m-a-year (yes, you read that correctly), making him the highest-paid athlete ever. It would be a huge statement of intent by the league but, as with the MLS move, it would be a massive step down from the top of his game, damaging his Ballon d’Or hopes and claims he is the best in the world ahead of Lionel Messi. 6 6 6 2. Paris Saint-Germain – The lure of an even more lucrative contract, as well as a project to help PSG win the Champions League, could be enough to bring the 32-year-old to the French capital. The Ligue 1 club are one of few in the world that could afford him. 4. Sporting Lisbon – Completing a full circle and returning to the club where it all started…but surely it is too early for this? The Portuguese hero signed a new contract at Madrid in December and revealed his desire to play on for a further decade, so maybe this could happen later in his 30s, as it would be a big step down when he is still at the top of his game, though not as much as MLS or China. 3. Bayern Munich – When you leave Real Madrid, any move will probably be a step down. Aside from Barcelona and Manchester United, the next best would probably be German giants Bayern Munich, managed by former Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti. Ronaldo would also get the chance to win a title in another European league, while being surrounded by stars and competing for the Champions League trophy. Would Bayern – huge as they are – be able to afford him, though? 6. Major League Soccer (USA) – click the right arrow, above, to see more possible options for Cristiano Ronaldo… – You would not be surprised if Cristiano Ronaldo conquers America – but most likely after his career as a football player comes to an end. MLS would be a huge step down, but a statement signing eclipsing LA Galaxy’s deal with David Beckham in 2007. It remains to be seen whether clubs could afford him, but Ronaldo would undoubtedly like the American lifestyle. He would effectively be retiring by moving there now, though. 6last_img read more
