Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer News & Odds

Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer News & Odds

Cristiano Ronaldo is on the lookout for a new club after his contract at Manchester United was terminated following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan’s show, ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’.

This interview made the 37-year-old’s position at Old Trafford untenable, due to his scathing verdicts of United’s owners, board, manager and legendary players such as Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney.

Many feel that it was a great shame for such a legendary figure of the club to leave in this fashion, as the 37-year-old has inspired the club to their last Champions League crown in 2007/08, while also winning eight other major honours in his first spell at Old Trafford before making a return at the start of last season.

In total, Ronaldo managed 27 goals in 54 matches during his recent spell with the Red Devils, on top of 118 goals in 292 appearances between 2003 and 2009. The Portuguese forward is also one of four United players to have won the Ballon d’Or while at the club, doing so in 2008, putting his name alongside legendary figures such as Denis Law, Sir Bobby Charlton and George Best.

Any Saudi Pro League Club Odds: 1/5

Following his acrimonious departure from Old Trafford, Ronaldo is a free agent and can effectively negotiate where he wants to move to next, whilst receiving a large signing-on fee for his services.

Of late, the likes of the Telegraph have said that the 37-year-old is considering a mega-money offer from Saudi Pro League outfit Al Nassr, who have notable players such as Vincent Aboubakar, Luiz Gustavo, Alvara, Davide Ospina and Anderson Talisca on their books and are managed by French coach Rudi Garcia.

Reports have said that Ronaldo will be offered a deal worth £173m per year at Al Nassr, with many saying that the Saudi Pro League see this as a league-enhancing move that could help them in a bid to host the 2030 World Cup.

Sporting Lisbon Odds: 8/1

A homecoming to Sporting Lisbon could be on the cards for Ronaldo, having possibly used up all of his other options at the elite end of European football.

Having played for United between 2003 and 2009, as well as Real Madrid and Juventus after his first spell at Old Trafford, perhaps at the age of 37, a return to Portugal could be the ideal way to end a glittering career at the top level - especially at the club where his career first started, as Ronaldo made his senior debut for Sporting back in September 2002.

The only honour that Ronaldo won with Sporting back then was the Supertaca Candido de Oliveira, so he may feel as though there is unfinished business having not won the league title in his homeland. Interestingly, Ruben Amorim’s men are in need of a clinical striker at this moment in time.

Ronaldo is priced at 8/1 for a sensational return to Sporting Lisbon.

Real Madrid Odds: 10/1

Could a return to Real Madrid be on the cards? After all, Los Blancos currently trail Barcelona by two points in the title race and don’t have a high-quality alternative option up front when Karim Benzema is injured.

Despite playing at Real for four more years than Ronaldo, Benzema is the La Liga giant's second all-time top scorer with 329 goals, 121 fewer than the former who has persistently shown a desire to stay and work at the top level. Having been coached by Carlo Ancelotti in the past as well as knowing that the Italian is good at getting the best out of ageing players, perhaps this is a move that could suit all parties.

Real are priced at 10/1 to bring Ronaldo back to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Newcastle United Odds: 12/1

Newcastle United are the wealthiest club in world football following the takeover of the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund. Could they prize the 37-year-old to St James’ Park?

The signing of Ronaldo would certainly be a huge statement and increase the brand popularity of the club, as the Magpies are looking to grow on and off the pitch to meet the standards of their wealthy owners.

With Eddie Howe’s men third in the Premier League table and showing a lot of ambition in their project, could Ronaldo spearhead their attempts to qualify for the Champions League?

Newcastle are priced at 12/1 to sign Ronaldo in January.

Any MLS Club Odds: 16/1

The MLS is a league where many high-profile players have gone in the latter stages of their careers, such as David Beckham, Gareth Bale, Giorgio Chiellini, David Villa, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and more.

With the likes of Inter Miami desperately looking for a new star striker after the retirement of ex-Real Madrid man Gonzalo Higuain, Beckham’s side could perhaps tempt Ronaldo into a move across the pond.

Meanwhile, a potential lifestyle in Los Angeles with either champions LAFC, or Los Angeles Galaxy could also tempt Ronaldo. Interestingly, he could be reunited with ex-Real teammate Bale at the formerly mentioned LA club and Chiellini, who he played with at Juve.

Ronaldo is priced at 16/1 to move to the MLS.

Chelsea Odds: 16/1

Chelsea were known to be interested in signing Ronaldo last summer, with new owner Todd Boehly going on a spending spree, hammering out just shy of £240m in transfer fees on the likes of Marc Cucerella, Wesley Fofana, Raheem Sterling and more.

It had previously been mentioned that Thomas Tuchel was the reason why the Blues didn’t sign Ronaldo, as the Portuguese forward reportedly didn’t fit into the German coaches' plans. Meaning, that with Graham Potter at the helm, Ronaldo could more or less be a player that is given to the manager rather than a planned signing.

Chelsea are priced at 16/1 to sign Ronaldo in January on a free transfer.
