Calciomercato journalist Stefano Benzi said on CMIT TV: “From my American correspondence I learned that there’s already the replacement of Gonzalo Higuain, who could be none other than Cristiano Ronaldo.
“There’s a lot of negotiations underway to bring him to MLS, it would be a welcome destination not only for the player, who would have been convinced to leave Europe.
“There’s an important possibility of going to Miami with David Beckham, who has preferential channels with Manchester United. The Americans who manage the Red Devils would gladly get rid of Ronaldo’s salary.”
Granted, paying a 37-year-old weekly wages of over £500,000 is not the best financial decision.
While Ronaldo has not been at his usual level this season, there are issues at Manchester United that are bigger than just selling him.
He’s still our highest scorer with 18 goals across competitions in 2021/22. Ronaldo has a year left on his contract but it remains to be seen how the new manager – most likely Erik ten Hag – feels about him.
