Has Ronaldo run out of choices?
Sky Sports activities Information senior reporter Melissa Reddy:

Maybe he’ll attempt to swing it the place the 25 per cent pay reduce in his contract can be waived away by United, maybe he desires to manoeuvre and muscle a brand new deal, we’ll have to attend and see.
