Amid reports Cristiano Ronaldo might leave Juventus in the summer of 2021, let’s take a look at the 10 clubs that he might sign up with next.
Could Ronaldo’s time at Juventus really be up? There have actually been doubts for over a year, but he is still around to this day as the club’s star performer under his third different manager in as many seasons in Andrea Pirlo.
Six goals in just 5 league games this season shows that, even at 35, Ronaldo stays in red-hot form and at the top of his video game.
However even these eye-watering statistics, on top of a goal-laden first 2 seasons, appear to be insufficient. If the reports are true, the Bianconeri board won’t use the Portuguese ace an extension on his contract that expires in 2022.
The supposed strategy is to OFFER the five-time Ballon d’Or winner at the end of the season prior to he leaves as a totally free representative.
But who exactly could afford Ronaldo in this current climate? Or be prepared to spend a lot for him?
Using odds from Betfair, we’ve assembled the names of the 10 favorites to sign Ronaldo in the summer of 2021 from leading to bottom.
1) PSG– 2.4
Coordinating With Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in Paris would be a dreamlike situation for any fan. Even Ronaldo, again if rumors are to be thought, fancies the prospect and eyed a move to PSG prior to COVID-19 cut it
Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has spoken on his regard for CR7 in the past and would no doubt deal him a huge fat cheque.
2) Inter Miami– 4.33
David Beckham’s MLS franchise clinched a playoff spot at the very first time of asking on Sunday in the Eastern Conference. Title magnificence is still an outside bet, but it’s been a strong launching campaign by all ways.
Now Beckham wishes to generate some star power to Inter Miami for a title push next season. Sergio Ramos, who is out of contract at Genuine Madrid next summer, is supposedly on his list. And he’s made it no secret of his desire to add Ronaldo to his team either.
3) LA Galaxy– 6.0
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no more, and Javier Hernandez has actually failed to fill deep space left by the big Swede in Los Angeles.
LA Galaxy, for that reason, will probably be on the lookout for a new striker to supply the objectives in the MLS. Adding Ronaldo seems a long shot at finest, but Betfair apparently feels otherwise.
4) Genuine Madrid– 8.5
Could the Bernabeu be the perfect area for Ronaldo to have his ‘last dance’?
The 35- year-old is probably the best player in Real Madrid history after an objective and trophy-laden nine years and could still show to be the difference-maker for Zinedine Zidane’s team– specifically for the Champions League.
5) Bayern Munich– 10.0
The Bavarians dominated everything last season on path to Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, and Champions League splendor.
One could argue they already have a goal device in Robert Lewandowski, however what’s the damage in having 2? That, on top of the many appealing talents coming through, would make Bayern an attractive choice for any player.
6) Manchester United– 10.0
Ronaldo ended up being a first-rate player throughout his Red Devils profession and still keeps tabs on his old club, according to Bruno Fernandes.
United are no longer the very same monsters they when were under CR7, but the difficulty in restoring those magnificence might just suit him. Leading them back to Premier League and Champions League glory would probably elevate him beyond famous status.
7) Manchester City– 15.0
Pep Guardiola’s side had their hearts set on Lionel Messi in the summer, however a change in the presidency at Barcelona may convince the Argentine to sit tight.
If that ends up to the case, and Sergio Aguero leaves once his agreement expires in 2021, could Ronaldo be the man instead? Again it seems unlikely, but Betfair feels there’s an opportunity it might take place.
8) Sporting CP– 19.0
Going back to the location where it all started might be a fitting end for Ronaldo’s remarkable career. He is Sporting’s biggest academy item and there is even talk the club could call their stadium after him.
9) FC Barcelona– 23.0
If Messi leaves Barcelona, who would replace him?
That’s something nobody responded to in the summertime however, if there was someone, could it be Ronaldo? He would have no problems bagging the objectives, but his past ties to Real Madrid alone make this a big outside opportunity.
10) A/C Milan– 34.0
The Serie A leaders claimed they nearly signed Ronaldo in 2018, but had to pull the plug on a prospective deal due to the financial resources included.
But the prospect of Cristiano connecting with Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the San Siro would be tough to turn down.
