Premier League side preparing for Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer in January

Cristiano Ronaldo is having the worst moment of his career, but the Portuguese striker looks set to get a lifeline in January.

Reports have emerged suggesting the Red Devils are ready to leave the striker on loan after he was ruled out of the Manchester United squad for Saturday’s game against Chelsea.

United is reportedly concerned about a lack of suitors, but Chelsea, who had formed connections with Ronaldo over the summer, appears ready to make a move.

The Blues chose to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to replace Ronaldo at the request of then-manager Thomas Tuchel. However, with the German’s absence, the owners are now ready to make their move.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s lack of suitors

Manchester United has not sparked any interest in Cristiano Ronaldo despite leaving him on a free transfer since the summer, sources revealed to ESPN.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus striker also angered Ten Hag by leaving the bench before the end of the game to enter the dressing room and leave the field without the head coach’s permission.

After being criticized by Ten Hag in July for returning home for a pre-season friendly against Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford, Ronaldo’s latest display of indiscipline has raised the prospect of the Portugal international leaving United in January.

But a source told ESPN that the hierarchy of United, led by the Glazer family of American owners, has been poised to sack Ronaldo since he made it clear in the summer that he wanted to leave the club.

Graham Potter seems to be fascinated to sign Ronaldo

Current manager Graham Potter would welcome the signing as players like Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech have struggled to find the back of the net this season. Landing Cristiano Ronaldo allows him to move Aubaymeyang.

Cristiano is believed to be willing to take a pay cut to facilitate a transfer which has been one of the summer’s biggest obstacles. According to Sunday World, there’s even talk of United and Ronaldo ending their contracts, so the next few days will be profitable.
