Although there are big problems to overcome in order for Ronaldo to join Atlético, Sky Sports News He told a source not to completely rule it out just yet.

Is Ronaldo out of options?

Melissa Reddy, Sky Sports News Senior Correspondent:

“As we saw on Instagram, Ronaldo has kept fit, so there are no concerns from Manchester United about his physique or his physical level; he is one of the best players in world football.

“In the end, Ronaldo said he wanted to leave Old Trafford, but the options are running out, and it looks like he’s really going to have to stay. He will be given up by United, maybe he wants to maneuver and get a new deal, we’ll have to wait and see, but it doesn’t look like Stamford Bridge on his papers.

Chelsea distanced themselves from the Ronaldo deal, as did Bayern Munich, Napoli and many other elite clubs that Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo’s agent, tried to sell to.

Danny Mills believes he could work for Erik ten Hag if Cristiano Ronaldo secures a move away from Manchester United.

“The offer from Saudi Arabia is astronomical but in the end it does not give Cristiano Ronaldo what he wants, which is that legacy. He wants to set Champions League records that he thinks no one else will be able to achieve in the future.

“He wants to sign at the highest level ever. Now, it increasingly looks like he will have to stay at Manchester United because there are no players from the big clubs.

“Everyone has strikers already, and Chelsea, which is the only club that seems likely to be affected by what Cristiano Ronaldo offers off the pitch. We were told that Mendes, while in front of these clubs, has been putting up the numbers in terms of social media influence, and the sponsorship he gets. On them, commercial gains from his shirt sales and things like that. But now they say it’s not in their plans. Their immediate goal is to bolster the defence.

“So, that really leaves Ronaldo with quite a few options. We know he wants to compete at the highest level, so if he goes to Saudi Arabia, it goes against everything he said and everything we already know about him and his career.”

“Manchester United have always been very calm and relaxed. They insisted he is not for sale, the last year of his contract will expire. How they manage this now, we will see, but Ronaldo is keeping fit, so they have no issues, problems or concerns about the condition he will be back in. prep season.”
