United, City, Chelsea, Sporting, Inter or….these are the options for Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is looking for an opportunity to leave Manchester United and the media have already confirmed that he has requested the club to allow him to leave if there is an acceptable offer.

The Portuguese superstar has 12 months left on his contract at Old Trafford, but he wants to remain in the race for major trophies, while the Red Devils and Erik ten Hag still cannot fulfill this ambition.

While every club in the world would like to have him in the team, there are not many who can meet the financial conditions of the 37-year-old. With this in mind, the obvious question is: Where will Ronaldo end up at the start of the 2022/2023 season?

Manchester United

With 24 goals scored in all competitions last season while others in the squad were struggling, it’s clear the Red Devils are not interested in letting a player of his caliber leave.

However, it has been reported that he has made a request to the club to allow him to leave – especially given the fact that United do not play in the Champions League.

Chelsea

Another team looking for a center forward after the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Inter on a one-year loan.

Given his strong links with United, it would be a surprise to see him move to another Premier League club, but the potential interest is there.

Paris Saint-Germain

A transfer that would make football fans happy to see the two best of this sport, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, in one team.

With Neymar expected to leave the Parc des Princes and the funds available to make any move happen, the French capital is a potential destination for CR7.

Real Madrid

The nine years spent at the Santiago Bernabeu (2009-2018) were the most successful in the superstar’s career, but also among the most successful periods in the history of Los Blancos, until Cristiano broke every record.

The fans continue to love Ronaldo, although the reigning Champions League champion has the duo of Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr. in the attacking phase.

Bayern Munich

With Robert Lewandowski keen to leave, the German champions have been linked with CR7, despite signing Sadio Mane.

However, the sports director, Hasan Salihamidzic, when asked by a fan about the Portuguese going to the Allianz Arena, answered briefly: “NO”.

Rome

Jose Mourinho’s presence at the Stadio Olimpico could help Roma land one of their biggest signings, although the Giallorossi cannot be serious contenders for his signature due to the 37-year-old’s finances and ambitions, as it is similar to that of United.

Naples

His arrival in Naples would ensure a great fan base, similar to that of the legend Diego Maradona, but can the Italian club fulfill Ronaldo’s ambitions: Compete for trophies and pay him a hefty salary?

Sporting Lisbon

Returning to the place where it all started would be very exciting, but this is expected to happen when the footballer decides to retire. However, he has no plans to slow down until he’s well into his 40s, at least.

Inter

Ronaldo knows Italian football thanks to his time at Juventus (2018-2021), but would he go to the Old Lady’s biggest rival?

With the return of Lukaku and while there is Lautaro Martinez in the team and there is the possibility of the transfer of Paulo Dybala, the chances of this move happening are minimal.

MLS

Cristiano may be fed up with European football and may be looking for something new in the United States of America, where he could join Manchester United legend David Beckham at Inter Miami.

There are also many other American clubs who want the services of the Portuguese, as his name is a huge marketing opportunity. However, it is probably still too early to retire from elite football.

Manchester City

The move to the Etihad Stadium was supposed to happen last summer, but Ronaldo rejected United’s rivals to return to Old Trafford.

At City, the football superstar’s ambitions would be fulfilled, but Pep Guardiola has already bought Erling Haaland and has many options in the attack phase.
