    Ronaldo’s next destinations

    Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will certainly not be short of suitors if he leaves in the summer.

    According to The Times, Bayern Munich and Premier League rivals Chelsea could try and snatch him if he departs from Old Trafford.

    New Blues owner Todd Boehly met the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s representatives Gestifute last month.

    Bayern, on the other hand, would first like to wait and see what happens with their own wantaway superstar Robert Lewandowski, as they have already signed Sadio Mane from Liverpool.
