Ronaldo to quit Real Madrid despite Zidane appointment

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is still expected to leave Real Madrid in the summer despite the appointment of club legend Zinedine Zidane as head coach,the Telegraph reports.

The publication claims Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites to land the Portuguese star, though Manchester United are touted as the most likely Premier League destination should he prefer a return to England.

Gareth Bale has been linked with a move back to the English top flight himself, but it has been suggested the Welshman is still very much a key part of Florentino Perez’s plans, with the club president more open to Ronaldo’s exit if he had to choose between the two.

The Telegraph claims to have spoken to a source close to Madrid, who stated: “Out of Bale and Ronaldo, Ronaldo is the player expected to leave the club. Bale is seen as the future, whereas Ronaldo’s best years may now be behind him.
