Cristiano Ronaldo wanted final shot at winning the Champions League, move was brutally rejected

Cristiano Ronaldo wanted final shot at winning the Champions League, move was brutally rejected

Cristiano Ronaldo is on the hunt for a new club after his Manchester United contract was terminated.

Cristiano Ronaldo was offered to Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, the club's CEO claims.

Ronaldo went into the World Cup as a free agent after his Manchester United contract was terminated by mutual consent on November 22.

It came as a result of his explosive interview with Piers Morgan and after assessing the situation, it was decided that Ronaldo should leave United for a second time.

There have been rumours aplenty as to where Ronaldo, now 37, will end up. Saudi Arabia side Al Nassr have been heavily linked with a lucrative €200 million-per-season switch but Ronaldo's desire to keep on playing in the Champions League is well known.

In the summer he was offered to what seemed like every club under the sun and Frankfurt's top brass have confirmed United proposed him recently.

Executive board member Axel Hellmann told DAZN: "He was even offered to us."

Philip Holzer, chairman of the club's supervisory board, backed up Hellman's claims. He explained: 'I have the feeling he was offered to every Champions League club."

Frankfurt beat Rangers in the Europa League final in Seville back in May and secured a spot in this season's Champions League as a result.

They finished second to Spurs in Group D on 10 points and secured qualification to the round of 16, where they will take on Serie A leaders Napoli.

They can therefore offer Ronaldo, the Champions League's record goalscorer, top-level European football for at least two games in February.

It would also give him a new challenge in a new league, having conquered the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.

However, there is no word on whether Frankfurt would be keen on taking the five-time Ballon d'Or winner given his age and hefty wages.

Reports claim that Al-Nassr are still the frontrunners for his signature and even freed up the No.7 shirt, but Qatari outfit Al-Sadd are also now believed to be in the mix.

Ronaldo, whose World Cup campaign ended with a substitute appearance in Portugal's quarter-final defeat to Morocco, has been training at Real Madrid's facilities in order to keep his fitness up.
