Knowing Ronaldo’s undying ambitions, it is highly unlikely he will settle for a second-rate European competition.

CR7 Reunites with Zidane: Ronaldo and Zidane – won three consecutive UCL titles together – formed a deadly combination at Real Madrid and getting the former French footballer on board could help matters at Turin. The two have won many titles and awards and accolades together. With Zidane not enjoying a good run at Madrid, a move cannot be ruled out.
The Old Trafford Return: Why not Manchester United? Reports in Italy last month claimed that the Portuguese are interested in the move. It could boil down to the contract and if Manchester United can afford him. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co would be more than happy to have his services back.
The PSG Move: If there is one club that can afford Ronaldo, it is Paris-Saint Germain. Ronaldo at PSG would bolster their frontline which already features superstars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. Following PSG’s heartbreaking loss against Manchester City in the UCL semis, they would be determined to take that extra step and that is where Ronaldo could help.
