Leer en español: Las opciones de Cristiano Ronaldo para continuar su carrera fuera del Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo has not been going through his best moment as a professional, since his return to Manchester United he has had a series of problems to demonstrate all his scoring power. As if this were not enough, his constant disputes with the club's managers and all the coaches he has had in recent months have put the career of the captain of the Portugal National Team in jeopardy.

With these issues, all the fans of the Manchester team hoped that with the arrival of the Dutch coach Erik Ten Hag, the striker would have a change in his attitude and could dazzle again. However, over the months his discomfort with this technical director has become known, this being the straw that broke the camel's back for his continuity in the "Red Devils".

Ronaldo's Imminent Departure

With his latest statements, CR7 has marked his destiny outside of Manchester United, since he has made it clear that he will never respect his current coach and that he feels betrayed by all the club's leaders. As a consequence of this, the few alternatives that the Portuguese attacker has to continue his career outside of Premier League football have begun to be revealed.

The possibilities Are Closing 

In recent months, the possibility of Ronaldo coming to Chelsea has become known, taking into account the change of president at the club and his large financial investment. However, the hiring of Graham Potter for the team's bench would set back this intention, since the Portuguese striker would not adapt to the game that the new strategist has been presenting.

In addition to losing the opportunity to reach Chelsea, it has been mentioned that Bayern Munich has closed its doors on him in recent weeks. With the departure of the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, everyone gave Ronaldo a great chance to make up for this loss. Despite this intention, the leaders of the Bavarian team have mentioned that they will not break their tradition in the market, so they will not make a high investment in this star.

Given these statements, the club has chosen to have other types of attackers, such as Sadio Mané, who has arrived this season to strengthen the offensive zone of the German team. Another footballer who has received opportunities from his coach is the Cameroonian striker Maxim Choupo-Moting, who has been having a fantastic season. With this great football news of this strikers, the arrival of Ronaldo has simply been ruled out.

The Last Dance?

Another option that has been lost over the weeks has been his return to Real Madrid, a team that did not have a good time after his departure. Despite this, the president of the Spanish club has mentioned that Ronaldo will not return to the merengue team, since he considers that he is of advanced age and his salary level is not adapted to the economic situation of the institution.

With these constant rejections, the footballer has few alternatives to continue playing in the best teams in Europe. Faced with this situation, everyone hopes that the striker of the Portugal National Team will have a great performance in the next world championship, with the intention of drawing the attention of several clubs from the old continent and that they can give him the opportunity to recover his best version. .

The Fall of a Legend

If this aspect does not materialize, it has been confirmed that from the MLS there are several clubs that have the economic fund to keep their sports rights, this being an opportunity to end their career in a lower-ranked league. One of the most interested teams is Inter Miami, where David Beckham has begun negotiations with the player's representatives.

On the other hand, it is known that Sporting Lisbon wants to count on Ronaldo again, remembering that CR7 has started his career as a professional footballer at this club, so it would be a very emotional close to his career. This is one of the possibilities that most attracts the footballer's attention, taking into account that this Portuguese team is constantly playing in the Champions League.

Lastly, the possibility of this attacker reaching PSG has been mentioned, a group that has begun to look at alternatives to the possible departure of Lionel Messi in the following season. In this scenario, the Portuguese striker would be an interesting option to reinforce the offensive part of the Ligue 1 team, which has been very close to signing Cristiano Ronaldo in recent seasons.

For now, it remains to be seen what determination the Manchester United leaders take, who have been hermetic in the face of this difficult situation. In addition to this, we must wait for the next World Championship, where all CR7 fans expect to see the best version of this striker, who could play his last World Cup in his career as a professional footballer in Qatar.
