The recent news that the Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘sad’ at Real Madrid has startled the world of football.
Though the reason behind this has not been released by the Spanish club or the player himself, and as all the major clubs get ready to capture the 27-year-old star, we have a look at the possible reasons why he should leave Los Blancos and what could be his possible destinations.
- Since being signed from Manchester United, Ronaldo has won only two major titles (Copa Del Rey and the La Liga) at Madrid, for a player with a habbit of biting the silverware that could be a reason to look into new avenues.
- When he joined in 2009 he was the best player in the Premier League. In the La Liga he has been under constant comparison with Lionel Messi and usually has been overshadowed by the little magician of Barcelona and with the recent shift of star power back to the Premier League. A move to remain in the center of attention rather than its adjacent could be speculated for world’s most expensive player.
- With more 3 years left on his contract at the end of which he would be 30 and probably unable to keep up his pace and agile game he may just end up on Los Blancos bench like many other Real Madrid stars which could become an issue of concern for him.
- Manchester United – With United and Ronaldo’s ex-boss and father figure Sir Alex Ferguson determined to conquer Europe once again before retirement, he would be eager to bring the former United star back, making United the most favourabale home for the Madrid hitman.
- Manchester City – With the new-found riches and reports that the Blue half of Manchester may be preparing a huge offer for the former World Player of the Year. But with Ronaldo denying money as a problem and he would not be keen to upset Ferguson by joining the reigning Premier League champions. The move seems more and more faint but as we have seen before the money of the Sheikh owned clubs can be quiet convincing.
- MLS – Another place which could be called his home in the future could be the United States. By doing so he would be following the footsteps of the legends such as Thierry Henry and David Beckham, who have shifted to the United States in the recent pas. In doing so, he will continue to earn a hefty sum in salary above that will have more time, considering Cristiano juniour being his complete responsibility very soon.
