The future of Cristiano Ronaldo is once again ruling the transfer market, as doubts loom over his stay at Real Madrid.
The Portuguese star fuelled rumours on his future with his comments after Real Madrid’s Champions League win over Liverpool.
Ronaldo won his fourth Champions League title with Real and a fifth overall. He once again was the fulcrum of Real’s attack throughout the season. And now, it remains to be seen what happens from here on.
Former club Manchester United have always been linked with a move for Ronaldo, despite Jose Mourinho claiming that CR7 is an impossible target.

Now with the uncertainty that has come up, United haven’t shown interest in the Portuguese international. And according to a report in Don Balon, that, in turn, has disappointed Ronaldo.
He is reportedly miffed at the Premier League club’s lack of effort to sign him. Ronaldo would be demanding wages in the region of £44m-a-year, and wants United to match that.
Although the Mancunian club is being tipped as one of the possible destinations, it is unlikely that Ronaldo will come to Old Trafford. Jose has a plethora of attackers in his squad, and the signing of Alexis Sanchez in January means he is focusing more on other positions.
Moreover, given Gareth Bale’s situation as well, if United do decide to invest in a forward, they could go for the Welshman rather than Ronaldo.
Recently, the Portuguese was absent from Real’s official kit launch for 2018-19, which sparked more rumours that he will leave the club this summer.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain are one of the favourites to land the player, and could go on to match his demands, as per reports.
