The Real Madrid FC is ready to sell Ronaldo to anyone club willing to pay around £74million, according to reports in Spain
The Spanish publication Fichajes claim club president Florentino Perez is refusing to open talks on a new contract for the club’s record goalscorer and is ready to let him leave.
Ronaldo has long been linked with a return to Manchester United, who were reportedly desperate to resign him during the summer.
And they could now be free to do so despite the player’s desire to finish his career in Spain.
The 29-year-old is said to be keen on staying at the La Liga giants but speculation as to his future has been rife.
Spanish expert Guillem Balague is previously quoted as saying this season will be his last at the Bernabeu, while the club hardly appear desperate to keep him.
The report in Spain cites his supposed difficult relationship with Gareth Bale as one factor that could force Ronaldo out.
The Real pair have been embroiled in a war of words that was started by Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett.
And the club’s hierarchy are understood to be fearful that Bale will never show his full potential while in the shadow of Ronaldo in the Real Madrid football club side line of play.
However, with the outstanding development if he does leave, United will not get a clear run at the three-time Balon d’Or winner by any means.
Paris Saint-Germain are also understood to be long-term admirers and have the requisite financial muscle to fund a deal.
