Revealed: The early frontrunners to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Man United in January

The Portuguese is widely expected to find a new club this winter

An insight into the early favourites to seal a deal for disgruntled Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo following the turn of the year has been provided late on Sunday evening.

Open in new window

For those who may have missed it, veteran attacker Ronaldo dropped nothing short of a bombshell on not only United, but a host of individuals associated with the club, too, a short time ago.

In quotes provided during an interview with presenter Piers Morgan, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner slammed the Red Devils, boss Erik ten Hag, club icon Wayne Rooney, and more.

The key takeaway, though, came in the form of Ronaldo essentially signalling his intent to depart once more, in revealing that he has been left feeling ‘betrayed’ by the club he loves:

The widespread assumption, in turn, is that CR7 has already played his final game in Manchester United colours.

Ahead of an imminent transfer saga, though, just where could the declining frontman realistically end up?

Well, as alluded to above, late on Sunday night, an insight into as much has been forthcoming online.

The info comes courtesy of betting syndicate Betfair, who point towards Chelsea - hotly tipped to land Ronaldo during the summer, as his most likely January landing spot:

  • Chelsea 4/1
  • Roma 5/1
  • Sporting CP 15/2
  • Any Saudi Arabian club 9/1
  • Any MLS club 10/1
