Ronaldo's Next Move: PSG, Real, MLS, Man Utd Or Back Home?

With Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly considering a Juventus exit, it remains a mystery as to where he could go next. Would he be tempted by a move to big spenders Paris Saint-Germain, a return to Real Madrid or Manchester United, take his career to the MLS, or go back to where it all started?

Reports in Italy suggest that the 35-year-old could be open to a move away from the Bianconeri in the next transfer window, following two successful years in Serie A.

The rumours do not appear to point to where Ronaldo would go next, although there might only be a handful of options for the Portugal international, who has so far played in his country of birth, England, Spain and Italy.

Perhaps Los Blancos' record goalscorer could be tempted to try his hand in Ligue 1, with French giants PSG having reportedly been following his career for years. The club's president Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently reserved words of praise for Ronaldo, saying: "He remains motivated by this desire to improve every day and he always pushes his limits. I admire this relentless will; he is a great example for all athletes of the future."

Many believe Al-Khelaifi's kind remarks about the five-time Ballon d'Or winner was his way of flirting with the forward, suggesting that perhaps he has word that Ronaldo could be talked into leaving Juventus come the end of the season.

In March, he was linked with a surprise return to Real, but those reports have since been rubbished by publications in Spain. Regarding Manchester United, while his legacy at the club remains intact, signing Ronaldo would go against their clear transfer strategy.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to be pursuing young British players as part of his rebuild at the Red Devils, although Ronaldo's experience and know-how would certainly help the likes of Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.

What might be the most realistic move for the Portuguese would be to take his career to the US, where he reportedly already owns property and holidays quite often. Big names such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Andrea Pirlo have enjoyed spells in the MLS in recent years, but Ronaldo's arrival would arguably be the league's biggest arrival since David Beckham in 2007.

It shouldn't be ruled out that Ronaldo would seek a return to where it all started, Sporting Lisbon, although the Portuguese club would certainly not be able to afford the wages he currently earns in Italy. Perhaps the striker would take a pay cut to return to the club that developed his talent, but maybe not just yet.

If Ronaldo were to leave Juve, where do you think he would go next? Let us know in the comments section below.
