Cristiano Ronaldo remains odds on to stay at Manchester United beyond the close of the transfer window despite a reported shift in the club’s stance on the player.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s dream move back to Manchester United has become somewhat of a nightmare in the last few months, with rumours of unrest and attitude problems streaming out of Carrington.
Now only a year on from his return he has been tipped to leave once again, with the oddschecker team looking at his most likely destinations around Europe.
Senior United players are said to be frustrated with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s attitude around the training ground as he creates a toxic environment, argues with coaches and sits alone to eat. New manager Erik ten Hag initially praised the forward but is said to have changed his position on Ronaldo and is now open to his departure.

Diego Simeone is one rumoured party said to be interested in bringing him back to Madrid to play for Real Madrid’s city rivals Atletico Madrid (6/1), but there has been uproar within the Atletico fanbase at this prospect. Meanwhile, a return to Real Madrid is as long as 25/1.
His agent Jorge Mendes has apparently looked at a return to Italy and offered him to both AC Milan (50/1) and Inter Milan (16/1) this month but both clubs turned down the opportunity to sign him. The more realistic option looks to be a sensational return to his childhood club, Sporting Lisbon, who are 7/2 favourites to sign him (worst price 9/4).
Chelsea’s (14/1 best) new owner has also thrown his hat into the race for the signing of the Portuguese international, but it is unlikely he will move to another Premier League club. On that note, it is worth mentioning that the odds suggest he is likeliest to stay with Manchester United (10/11) and fight for his place under ten Hag.

Ronaldo’s problems at Old Trafford are said to have stemmed from their failure to qualify for the Champions League this season but has now moved on to their lack of transfer activity and the style of football ten Hag is trying to implement.
At 37 years old he is at the end of his career, but his household name still makes him an attractive option to many. Will he get a move to back to a European giant or is his time at the height of world football finally coming to an end?
