After being turned down in the summer, Cristiano Ronaldo is looking to leave Manchester United, and David Beckham’s MLS team Inter Miami is preparing a sizable offer. 

Cristiano Ronaldo might have a way out of Manchester United as David Beckham’s Inter Miami team is planning to land the star striker. 

The Portuguese star has made it known that he wanted to leave Old Trafford in the summer, but he was unable to complete a transfer since the club made it obvious that it would not sell him.

However, Ronaldo has only received a few brief starts in the Premier League under Erik ten Hag. 

After the previous campaign, Manchester United chose to keep Ronaldo after the veteran scored 24 goals in all competitions while playing under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick. 

But so far this season, the 37-year-old Portuguese icon has regressed, scoring just one goal in all competitions and he is yet to score in the Premier League.

Even if he will continue to be behind Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in Erik ten Hag’s preferred starting lineup, Ronaldo still wants to leave Manchester United. 

After being snubbed in the embarrassing Manchester derby last weekend, Ronaldo’s frustration is only increasing. 

According to the Daily Star, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has few suitors at 37 and may find a move to the MLS appealing given the enormous £30 million contract on the table. 

Inter Miami, a newcomer to the MLS and managed by Ronaldo’s old teammate Phil Neville and owned by Beckham, has been associated with several A-list superstars. 

Gonzalo Higuain, their highest-paid player, has said he will end his career, leaving the team searching for a replacement. 

The American team’s sole demand is that Ronaldo joins them for no fee, which would require United to forego any transfer fees.

Manchester United is rumored to want roughly £10m if they decide to sell their player in the new year.

Even if Ten Hag does not employ Ronaldo as a squad player, United’s upper brass appears willing to keep him for the rest of the campaign. 

Despite this, the Portuguese star, who has spent a large portion of the current season on the sidelines, is likely to push for a January departure.

Once he returned to the Manchester United team in the previous season, Ronaldo was criticized by most pundits for reportedly harming the flow of the team. 

This term hasn’t seen any complaints of intramural conflict, but if that were to develop, Ten Hag might be inclined to approve his departure if he wants to keep the playing group together. 

The former Real Madrid player is out of form going into what may be his final World Cup with Portugal because he has only scored once this season, and that goal came in the Europa League.

Ten Hag asserts that despite Ronaldo’s dissatisfaction with his insufficient playing time, he is not actively trying to leave the team.

The coach stated: “He doesn’t appear to be unhappy to me. He is content, training effectively, and having fun.”

The Dutchman went on to say: “Don’t get me wrong, he’s not happy that he didn’t play on Sunday, but the question was about how he was feeling during training and whether or not he was happy. Naturally, he wants to play and becomes angry when he can’t.”
