Cristiano Ronaldo, a forward for Manchester United, reportedly wants to leave Old Trafford this summer even if it means taking a big pay cut.
Ben Jacobs says that the legendary Portuguese player is willing to take a 30% pay cut to get a transfer. It has also been reported that he is willing to join Atletico Madrid, which is a rival of his old team, Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo asked United earlier this month to let him leave if another team wanted him.
Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is said to have been contacting the best clubs in Europe to try to speed up the move.
Atletico Madrid, led by Diego Simeone, is the latest big club to be linked to the 37-year-old Ronaldo, but they have moved away from him.
Chelsea, PSG, and Bayern Munich had all turned him down before, and now Los Blancos are the latest team to do the same.
The Spanish newspaper Marca says there is no chance that Ronaldo will return to the Bernabeu because he is not in their plans.
This is despite the fact that he scored an incredible 450 goals in 438 games for the club between 2009 and 2018.
