It looks like Manchester United may have already lost the transfer race for their former superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, as the Real Madrid scoring machine is believed to have already chosen a new club – and it won’t be the Old Trafford tenants.
According to a report from Mundo Deportivo [per Goal], Ronaldo has agreed to a deal with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain. Per the source, Ronaldo will only complete the move if he is unable to reach a new deal with Real Madrid.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic packed and ready to depart France at the end of the season, Ronaldo is arguably the only available player in the world who would serve as an upgrade over the Swedish scoring machine.
Ronaldo has been wanted by Manchester United for years ever since they sold him to the La Liga giants in a world-record transfer move back in 2009. Since moving to Spain, Ronaldo has won two Ballon d’Or awards, a La Liga title, the Champions League and the La Liga MVP.
