Cristiano Ronaldo has one year left on his current contract at Juventus and the forward is now reportedly weighing up his options, despite being locked in talks with the Turin club. Ronaldo signed from Real Madrid in 2018 but has endured a disappointing three years on a collective level, despite winning two Serie A titles.
Ronaldo’s stocks skyrocketed at Manchester United between 2003 and 2009, where he won his first Ballon d’Or before eventually completing a then world record transfer for £80 million to Real Madrid.
But the 36-year-old is now reportedly discussing a potential move with his entourage. According to ESPN, the players representatives are ‘gauging interest’ from Europe’s top clubs before making a definitive decision.
The report claims that they have been in touch with Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Manchester United to understand the situation.
It also claims that a resolution is unlikely before the European Championships this summer and that more talks are planned between Ronaldo and his club when he returns for pre-season. The high wages and fees that come with a transfer of this magnitude is believed to be an obstacle for any suitor.
Manchester United are unlikely to wreck their wage structure by bringing Ronaldo in, who would almost certainly demand to be the clubs best paid player.
