Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a number of clubs but made no progress, as he remains a free agent. It was such his desperation to play in this season’s Champions League, that there’s a feeling that he was offered to every club participating in the tournament.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United did not go as expected. Despite being one of their few bright spots last season, the Portuguese star was relegated to a supporting role this term and eventually pulled out of his contract after a huge hit with Erik ten Haga and the management.
His future now looks uncertain as Ronaldo has yet to find a new club following Portugal’s heartbreaking exit from the 2022 World Cup. The 37-year-old has already been linked with other clubs during his time at United, but even as a free agent he is trying to find a place where he can stick.
Ronaldo, the all-time top scorer, has been looking for a Champions League club all these months. No deal materialized, although he is believed to have been offered to every team in the tournament.
Cristiano Ronaldo may have been offered to every UCL club, Frankfurt board member says
Eintracht Frankfurt‘s chairman of the supervisory board Philip Holzer has recently revealed the German club turned down the chance to sign Ronaldo. However, Holzer believes that pretty much every UCL club could have landed the veteran striker.
“He was even offered to us,” Holzer told Patrick Berger of DAZN. “I have the feeling he was offered to every Champions League club.”
It would be insane that so many clubs reject Ronaldo, but in some cases, his own demands may be a stumbling block. Ronaldo has already shown he wants playing time, something only a few teams can guarantee, while others may not be able to afford his salary. So, what’s next for CR7? Only time will tell.
