Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United has been a hot topic of discussion in recent weeks. The Portuguese superstar is rumoured to be looking for a way out of Old Trafford after the Red Devils failed to qualify for the Champions League as a result of finishing sixth in the Premier League last season.
Ronaldo, arguably the greatest player in Champions League history, is believed to be keen to continue playing in Europe’s elite competition.
But he does not appear to have many options to leave Manchester United this summer. The likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Chelsea were all linked with the legend, and all of them have been ruled out since then.
Recently though, some surprising news broke out. An unnamed club from Saudi Arabia are believed to have made a €30 million transfer bid to sign Ronaldo from Manchester United while offering the superstar €275 million in wages for the next two seasons. But as reported by ESPN, he is set to turn down the highly lucrative offer.

It looks like Ronaldo is keen to continue on playing at the top level at this stage of his career and as a result, he does not want to move to Saudi Arabia, which makes sense.
At the same time, he does not seem to have much chance of leaving Manchester United this summer. On one hand, the club do not seem to be ready to let their star man leave. On the other hand, it appears that not a lot of clubs are looking to sign him either.
Thus, the situation is far from ideal for Ronaldo. It remains to be seen what the future holds for him and whether we get to see him in the Europa League next season.
