Where would CR7 play if he leaves Real Madrid?

CR7's possible destinations if he chooses to leave Real Madrid

June 16, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
The Portuguese superstar is not happy with his involvement in a tax fraud investigation, and rumors coming from Spain suggested which teams could lure him away from Spanish soil.

The news about Cristiano Ronaldo being willing to leave Real Madrid over his tax fraud investigation by Spanish authorities has prompted all sorts of reactions, and among those is, of course, which team could be his next employer.

Signing a player such as Cristiano Ronaldo takes  more than a smile. A massive check is needed, and there are only a few European clubs who could undertake that mammoth task. Without further ado, here's our take on which teams would be in the race to sign the Portuguese superstar.

Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo's love for Manchester United is a well-documented fact. Neither him nor the club have hidden the fact that a return to Old Trafford would be a dream come true for both parties, and the Red Devils surely have the necessary cash to lure the player back to the Theatre of Dreams.

Pros: Manchester United can pay CR7's buyout clause without hesitation. Fans love him, and having Sir Alex Ferguson around as a mentor once again would be appreciated by the striker.

Cons: His relatioship with Jose Mourinho could be a deal breaker, as The Special One and CR7 ended their run together at the Bernabeu in bitter terms.

Paris Saint-Germain

The French club has been linked several time to CR7's future. Owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi has repeatedly admitted that it would be a "dream" to have the Portuguese player around, and he would be more than happy to ask his "friend" Florentino Pérez to make way for the transfer to happen.

Pros: PSG has the resources to pay CR7 more money than he could ever dream of, he'd still be involved in UEFA Champions League games, and adding one more UCL title with another team could be tempting enough for him to sign.

Cons: Ligue 1 is not as competitive as La Liga, which has been the cause for CR7 to snub any potential move to the French capital side.

Years ago, Catalan and French newspapers revealed that a deal had been reached between CR7 & PSG.

Bayern Munich

Die Roten would be another potential suitor for CR7, especially due to one man: Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian boss was like a father figure for the Portuguese player in his two-year stint at the Bernabeu, and CR7's willingness to play once again under "Carletto" could make the Bavarian side splash cash to sign him.

Pros: Top-caliber team, UCL contenders every season, one of the most laureated football clubs in the world, Ancelotti's excellen relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cons: Just like Ligue 1, the Bundesliga is also considered a one-team league, where no matter which team spends the most, the end result will see Bayern Munich lifting the trophy.
