Manchester United are the bookies’ favourites to land Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo

With Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly considering his future at Real Madrid, Manchester United have emerged as the frontrunners to sign the Portuguese ace.

Manchester United are the favourites to sign Cristiano Ronaldo should the Portuguese attacker decide to call time on his Real Madrid career, according to the latest bookmaker odds.

The Express are among those reporting that the 30-year-old could be considering his future at the Bernabeu in the light of their 4-0 drubbing at the hands of archrivals Barcelona.

If Ronaldo does decide to leave the club, he is not likely to be short of possible suitors with both Paris Saint-Germain and former club Manchester United both consistently linked with move for the Madeira-born star.

However it’s the Red Devils who remain in pole position according to data collated by Oddschecker.com with United priced as the evens money favourites to be Ronaldo’s next club.

PSG are next in the running around the 7/4 mark while there could also be value in the 5/2 offered on Bayern Munich landing CR7.

Sporting Lisbon, the club where Ronaldo started his career, can be found around the 4/1 mark in the latest odds while LA Galaxy also remain contenders at 8/1 with the allure of a big money move to the US potentially proving too good to turn down.

Much, however, could depend on the future of current Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez, who is under pressure following their heavy home defeat to Barca.

A change of manager could see Ronaldo’s perspective change and then all bets would most definitely be off.
