Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the Santiago Bernabeu next summer looks likelier than ever before as Liga BBVA expert Guillem Balague suggests that he should decide upon his future at the end of the season, with the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain continue to be interested.

The Red Devils vying for the signature of the Portuguese forward for the second time has been well documented and report emanating from Spanish news outlet Fichajes . now claims that Louis van Gaal will attempt to lure him to Old Trafford, with an astounding A?92.5million bid set to go in when the transfer window opens in July next year.

Cristiano Ronaldo does not seem to have fallen victim to senescence as he has hitherto netted eight goals in seven outings for Real Madrid and it is understandable why Ed Woodward does not mind offering a A?350k-a-week package for an aging centre-forward. United believe that the outlay could be financed by the commercial revenue that Ronaldo would provide.

However, Manchester United are believed to be facing stiff competition from fellow big-spenders in Paris Saint-Germain as they are reportedly preparing a A?110.8million bid for his services. Football, bloody hell!
