Cristiano Ronaldo Next Club Odds: Ronaldo Remains Hopeful Of Securing A Move
© PA

Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire to leave Manchester United has intensified after showdown talks with new manager Erik ten Hag proved fruitless.

Betting sites still make him odds-on to remain a Red Devils player after the transfer window slams shut, but Ronaldo remains hopeful of securing a move.

He appeared visibly unimpressed with ten Hag’s team talk during Man Utd’s 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano in a friendly on Sunday, and he left the stadium before the final whistle.

Ronaldo, who missed the club’s pre-season tour of Australia and Thailand for “family reasons”, has made an official transfer request.

He has instructed agent Jorge Mendes to find him a new club this summer, but there are limited options as we hurtle closer to the transfer deadline day on 31 August.

Let’s take a look at where Ronaldo is most likely to be plying his trade during the 2022-23 season:

Stay At Man Utd

Man Utd have made it abundantly clear that they intend to keep hold of Ronaldo this summer.

The Portuguese superstar is contracted until the end of the campaign, and they do not have many alternatives in attack.

Edinson Cavani has now left the club, while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have been far from prolific over the past couple of years.

Ronaldo banged in 24 goals in 38 games for a struggling Man Utd team last season, so they may be loath to let him go.

He does not necessarily fit into the intense pressing style that ten Hag favours, but the Dutchman is adamant that Ronaldo is not for sale. “We are planning for Cristiano Ronaldo for the season and that’s it,” said ten Hag in an interview earlier this summer.

Nothing has changed since then, and football betting sites are offering 9/20 on him staying put.

Sporting Lisbon

The Primeira Liga side have emerged as the frontrunners to snap up Ronaldo if he manages to force through a move this summer.

The 37-year-old striker began his career at Sporting before completing a £12.25m deal to join Man Utd back in 2003. He could now go full circle by trading Manchester for Lisbon.

A desire for Champions League football is driving Ronaldo’s desire to leave the Red Devils this summer.

He is the leading scorer in the competition’s history, with 140 goals in 183 games, but fierce rival Lionel Messi is lurking ominously behind him on 125 goals, and Ronaldo apparently fears being overtaken.

Sporting could certainly offer Ronaldo Champions League football. However, they are unlikely to go deep into the competition, and their highest earning player is on just £88,000-a-week, so he would need to take a huge pay cut.

Yet Sporting are now priced at just 3/1 with Paddy Power to sign Ronaldo, which would be a landmark moment in their history.

Atlético Madrid

Diego Simeone

Ronaldo is now priced at 10/1 with bet365 to secure a controversial move to Atlético Madrid this summer.

He won his first Ballon d’Or and Champions League title at Man Utd, but Ronaldo really cemented his status as a modern great during a trophy-laden nine-year spell at Real Madrid.

Moving to Atlético could tarnish his legacy, and some fans at the club have protested against plans to sign him, but manager Diego Simeone is said to be keen to work with Ronaldo.

Los Rojiblancos regularly reach the latter stages of the Champions League, so it could prove to be an attractive destination.

However, Atlético would need to sell key players to clear room in the wage bill, so a potential move could prove complicated.

Chelsea

Mendes met with Chelsea owner Todd Boehly to discuss a potential move for Ronaldo last month.

The Athletic later reported that the Blues have no interest in signing him, but that could change if they make a slow start to the season.

Romelu Lukaku has returned to Inter on loan, leaving Chelsea without a conventional striker to lead the line.

Forward Timo Werner continues to be linked with a move away from the club, and Boehly could still be keen on making a statement signing to mark the start of his ownership.

Some reports suggested that Ronaldo is not keen on playing for a direct rival to Man Utd, although he seemingly has no qualms about moving to Atlético Madrid.

Chelsea are one of the few clubs that could afford his wages, so they are priced at 14/1 with Betfair to sign him.

Bayern Munich

Bayern were the favourites to sign Ronaldo from Man Utd earlier in this summer transfer window.

Robert Lewandowski has left the club for Barcelona, and new arrival Sadio Mané is not really a direct replacement, so Ronaldo could be an appealing target.

However, chief executive Oliver Kahn has ruled out a move for him, saying it would not “fit with our philosophy”, so he has drifted out to 16/1 with 10Bet to join the Bundesliga champions.

Long Shots

Napoli want to make Ronaldo a Neapolitan icon, following in the footsteps of Diego Maradona.

They are a Champions League team, they play attacking football and he knows Serie A well from his time at Juventus, so a move could make sense.

However, they would have to shatter their wage structure to sign him, so he is 20/1 with some betting apps to move to Napoli.

Longer shots include Real Madrid (22/1), Inter (25/1), a return to Juventus (28/1), any MSL club (40/1), Roma (40/1), AC Milan (50/1) and Tottenham (66/1).
