Cristiano Ronaldo Is 'Set To Reject £210m Mega-Deal From Saudi Arabia', It's Not About The Money For Him

Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly turn down a highly lucrative offer to join a Saudi Arabian club from Manchester United.

Ronaldo, 37, is searching for a way out of United this summer after informing the club he wants to leave should a suitable offer arrive.

The club are prepared to give the five-time Ballon d'Or winner a huge two-year contract worth £210m, while also offering United a £25m transfer fee for the Portugal captain.

But Ronaldo is set to reject the chance to overtake PSG star Kylian Mbappe as the world's best-paid footballer, according to ESPN.

It is claimed Ronaldo wants to play Champions League football next season and compete for major trophies in a competitive league at this stage of his career.

Chelsea had expressed an interest in signing Ronaldo but have now decided against signing the forward.

But ESPN claim Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid are still in the race to sign the Portuguese.

Ronaldo is currently training by himself after being left out of United’s squad for their pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus forward still has one year remaining on his contract at Old Trafford.

United manager Erik ten Hag insists the striker remains part of his plans for this season and that "nothing has changed".

Ronaldo only returned to United last summer, rejoining the club from Juventus.

He scored 24 goals in all competitions last season but is now seeking a move away after United finished sixth in the league under Ralf Rangnick, with their lowest points tally of the Premier League era.
