Cristiano Ronaldo may want to leave Manchester United, but his best option could be to stay at Old Trafford this season. That is despite Atletico Madrid emerging as a potential suitor as they look to boune back from their own disappointing season.
According to The Times, Atletico are preparing to make a move for the Portuguese superstar. First, they will need to cut down their wage bill, but boss Diego Simeone is keen to add Ronaldo to his squad.
Ronaldo is also thought to view a move to Atletico favourably, with a desire to return to a city where he set so many records. But making such a move would go against strong advice that Ronaldo received earlier this year.
Former Liverpool hero John Barnes stated his belief that Ronaldo’s best option would be to stay at United. He insisted that there were no clubs interested who would present a better situation than the Red Devils.
