Football agent Jorge Mendes has revealed that former Manchester United hero Cristiano Ronaldo could move on from Real Madrid for another club in the near future.
The Portuguese forward has been the subject of much speculation over the past few weeks with a number of top European clubs harbouring hopes of concluding a deal.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain were always interested due to their advancing project, but his former club United were also said to have monitored his situation carefully.
In fact, rumours intensified after Los Blancos endured a nightmare campaign during Jose Mourinho’s final season in charge, and former United teammate Rio Ferdinand tried to personally persuade the star to return to Old Trafford.
Yet, after a failed attempt the arrival of Italian boss Carlo Ancelotti and the ensued success has all but ended the Red Devils’ hopes of welcoming back their former idol. Or has it?
Super-agent Jorge Mendes is usually quite vocal surrounding the on-goings of his client – and friend – and he revealed yesterday that Ronaldo could play for another club after the La Liga giants.
Fresh hopes for the Old Trafford outfit? Well, not exactly as the 29-year-old is said to only be considering a move to the United States once he decides to call it a day on his time in the Spanish capital.
“He will finish his career at Real Madrid, and after that, perhaps he will go to the United States. Only God knows what will happen,” Mendes was quoted as saying by Spanish newspaper AS.

Ronaldo has scored an amazing 26 La Liga goals in 15 matches so far this season, breaking numerous records and receiving a host of plaudits.
He is the big favourite to win the Ballon d’Or award ahead of his rival Lionel Messi, and there seems to be no limits to how much more he can achieve in the game.
