Will Cristiano Ronaldo Leave Juventus This Summer?

Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Juventus and it appeared heavily likely that the decorated Portuguese international would be signing for Manchester City.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been a massive Serie A success for Juventus, although it appears as though the Turin club have lost their battle to keep hold of a player who could be set for a return to Manchester United.

Initially it appeared that Manchester City were in pole position to capture Ronaldo, although their interest in the player has cooled significantly, with Pep Guardiola effectively ruling out a move for a 36-year-old coming to the end of his career.

However, the latest football betting odds suggest that Ronaldo is packing his suitcases and getting ready to return to Manchester. The red half of Manchester.

Manchester United Set to Capture Ronaldo

In an incredible turn of events, Manchester United have gone from the 6/1 outsider to the massive odds-on favourite to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo. The player made his name at Old Trafford after making 196 appearances and scoring 84 goals for the Red Devils, with his improvement under Sir Alex Ferguson as the pair won multiple Premier League titles.

However, Friday's press conference with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer intimated that the north-west giant are very open to welcoming back a player who has parted company with Juve and it could be that we see Ronaldo unveiled over the coming days which would make for sensational scenes. Some bookies have now suspended their Cristiano Ronaldo next club betting market and it would be a surprise if his destination wasn't Old Trafford, with the player having played his final game in Italy.

The United of 2021 is different to the one Ronaldo left in 2009, however. Alex Ferguson’s side were regular title winners back then, while they also reached Champions League finals in 2008, 2009 and 2011. United have not finished top of the Premier League since Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, and they did not even reach the knockout stage of the Champions League last term. Ronaldo is determined to win Europe’s biggest prize again and United hope the signing of CR7 will make them contenders for the titles the Portuguese won in his first spell at Old Trafford.

Manchester City's Interest in CR7 Cools

It's crazy to think that Cristiano Ronaldo is now likely to be lining up for Manchester United next season, with talks at Manchester City having broken down previously to this. Having missed out on Kane's signature after the striker declared he was remaining at Tottenham, it appears as though the champions of England were going all out to capture someone regarded as among the best in the world.

However, City lost interest in signing the highly-motivated 36-year-old who has plenty of years left at the top considering his physical condition, with Ronaldo not regarded as the missing piece of the jigsaw when it comes to challenging and winning the Champions League after last season's near miss when losing to Chelsea in the final.

Ancelotti and Cristiano back to Madrid?

Despite what the bookies say, it is easier to envision Ronaldo returning for a second spell at Real Madrid than Manchester United. Madrid have just appointed Carlo Ancelotti, the manager under whom Ronaldo won the Champions League in 2014. Ancelotti is a master at managing big personalities, and the Portuguese enjoyed working with him the first time around.

Madrid’s choice of Ancelotti demonstrates that they have postponed the rebuilding project for another year or two. Winning now is what matters most to the 13-time European champions, and the chance to re-sign Ronaldo might prove too tempting for Florentino Perez to turn down.

However, both Ancelotti and Ronoldo himself have recently played down reports of a Bernabeu reunion.

Sporting CP would be the Romantic Choice

Ronaldo began his career at Sporting CP but was whisked away by Manchester United before he had even played 50 games for the club. It would make perfect sense if the Portuguese felt he had unfinished business in Lisbon.

At the same time, a move to Sporting would in effect signal that Ronaldo has bowed out of life at the elite level. They may have won the Primeira Liga last time out, but Sporting will not be lifting the Champions League trophy any time soon. There is also the issue of wages: Ronaldo would have to accept a significantly lower salary in Lisbon.

Ronaldo’s homecoming could happen in two or three years, but it still feels a bit early for a player who is still scoring so many goals in a top-five European league.

CR7 in China or MLS?

The Chinese Super League and Major League Soccer are potential destinations too. Contrary to the odds, MLS seems a much more likely destination, partly because Ronaldo would no doubt prefer the lifestyle in Los Angeles to Beijing, but also because the Chinese Super League has made it more difficult to sign foreign players on big money.

Similarly to Sporting CP, it is hard to see Ronaldo moving to MLS just yet. He probably sees it as an option in the future, but the five-time European champion will believe he still has another Champions League victory left in him.

Another Superstar for PSG?

PSG are not afraid of making a splash in the transfer market, as demonstrated by their stunning £198m signing of Neymar in 2017 and the audacious swoop to sign Lionel Messi in 2021. At times it has felt like the club’s mission has been to gather as many high-profile superstars at the Parc des Princes as possible, although their recruitment has become a little more sensible in recent years.

As an outsider looking to break into Europe’s traditional elite, PSG are keen to show that they are an attractive project to the world’s best players. So, if Kylian Mbappe departs this summer – like Ronaldo, he is out of contract in 2022 – moves on we can expect the French giants to replace him with another big name.

Needless to say, Ronaldo would not be a like-for-like replacement for Mbappe, given the stylistic and age differences. But with PSG absolutely desperate to get over the line in the Champions League, they might view Ronaldo as an ideal stop-gap for a couple of years.
