Cristiano Ronaldo is wanted by David Beckham’s Inter Miami with talks under way over a shock move for the Manchester United outcast.
Ronaldo has given an explosive interview to Piers Morgan and the fall-out is all but certain to see him leave Old Trafford – with Miami now keen to tempt the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to the MLS.
According to The Sun, Miami owner Beckham has spoken to Ronaldo’s representatives and been told the 37-year-old is interested in a switch to America.
While Beckham is still hoping to lure another all-time great – Lionel Messi – to the club, he has been alerted to Ronaldo’s availability and exploring a potential deal.
Ronaldo replaced Beckham at Manchester United back in 2003 – taking his number seven shirt – and followed his career path by eventually joining Real Madrid.
Ronaldo could now see his career come full-circle by teaming up with Red Devils hero Beckham in America.
It would also represent an interesting reunion with former United teammate Phil Neville, who is the current manager of Inter Miami.
Ronaldo criticised Phil’s brother, Gary, in his explosive interview with Piers Morgan, declaring ‘we will never be friends’.
Ronaldo looks certain to have played his last game for Man United having made a number of astonishing complaints about his recent difficulties, hitting out at manager Erik ten Hag, the Glazer family as well as former teammates Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney.
It is understood Ten Hag wants to see the back of Ronaldo and United are reportedly exploring a big-name replacement.
France sensation Kylian Mbappe is being tipped as a potential replacement for Ronaldo.
Mbappe is thought to be unsettled in Paris, despite signing a lucrative three-year extension earlier this year to fend off interest from Real Madrid.
The Daily Mirror claims United are considering a £150million bid to sign the 23-year-old goal machine in January, while Napoli’s £60m-rated Victor Osimhen is also on their radar.
