Cristiano Ronaldo has been heavily linked with with a return to Old Trafford 11 years after walking away from Old Trafford.
The 35-year-old was tipped to rejoin his former team after Juventus made it clear that they want to cut down on their wagebill.
Ronaldo is the most paid in the team with an annual earnings of about £28 million – five times over what Paulo Dybala who is the club’s next most paid star takes home.
However, the chances of the Portuguese returning to the Premier League club have been cut down in the last 24 hours according to bookmakers Betfair.
The forward’s current deal with the Old Lady expires in the summer of 2022 but he might be put up for sale in January according to SunSport.
Juve wants to expunge Ronaldo out of their pay list owing to his £540,000-a-week wages to offset the financial impact of COVID-19.
And the Red Devils appear to be one of the favourites to land the five-time Ballon d’Or with the odds as big as 9/1 on Tuesday. But the price has crashed down into 10/3 with Betfair.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint Germain are leading the chase for the most successful football star in the history of Champions League with 7/5 odds, while a return to Real Madrid can be snapped up at 5/1 odds.
It earlier reported that Juventus are planning to cut ties with Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of this season due to the impact of the coronavirus crisis.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner currently earns £28 million – five times over what Paulo Dybala who is the club’s next most paid star takes home.
And the Old Lady can’t wait to get that huge amount off their wage bill in a bid to remain in business beyond this term.
