Cristiano Ronaldo Has A Transfer Offer On The Table And Wants Man Utd To Set A Price

Cristiano Ronaldo has a move away from Manchester United 'on the table' and has asked the club to set their asking price.

The Portugal international and agent Jorge Mendes held talks with United chiefs earlier this week in an attempt to resolve his future.

Ronaldo is desperate to play in the Champions League again and according to The Sun, a 'live offer' is in play.

It is believed United's hierarchy were less than thrilled with the suggestion they release the 37-year-old as a thanks for all he's done.

Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford from Juventus last summer and still has one year remaining on his contract.

There is an option to extend that for an extra year too, something manager Erik ten Hag hinted at being activated in 2023.

Ronaldo missed United's pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia due to a personal family issue and has since returned to training.

He did not feature in a behind closed doors friendly against Wrexham on Wednesday however and it is unlikely he features in games against Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano this weekend.

That puts his involvement in United's Premier League curtain raiser against Brighton and Hove Albion on August 7 in doubt.

Ronaldo scored 24 goals in all competitions last season as United finished sixth with their lowest-ever Premier League points tally.

According to The Athletic, Ronaldo wants to cement his Champions League goalscoring record ahead of bitter rival Lionel Messi.

The Paris-Saint Germain superstar is two years younger than Ronaldo and virtually guaranteed a place in Europe's elite competition while playing in France.

Ronaldo is currently ahead of Messi by 15 goals but knows the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner could make up the difference quickly.

Talks have been held with Sporting CP, where Ronaldo started his career. The forward's former club finished second in the Primeira Liga and will be in the Champions League.

Finance to fund the move would be difficult and head coach Ruben Amorim is cautious of Ronaldo's arrival damaging his side's dynamic.

Atletico are the other side publicly linked, but ultras are passionately against a bid for the Real Madrid legend.
