Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly offered himself to one of his former clubs following his bombshell interview criticising his current employers.
After his much-publicised chat with British broadcaster Piers Morgan, it is believed that Ronaldo will never play for United again considering his slating remarks regarding the club and current manager Erik ten Hag last week.
The English giants confirmed on Friday that they had had launched their own internal investigation regarding the controversial interview, and some reports in the English media have suggested that the 37-year-old's actions are irreconcilable and that an early departure in January is likely.
Australian Professional Leagues CEO Danny Townsend has already revealed his interest in luring the Portugal international to the country's A-League, and it is understood a formal proposal has already been made to his agent Jorge Mendes.
Per Spanish outlet Diario Sport, however, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has now offered himself to his ex-employers Real Madrid, on a six-month deal until the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
It is said that Los Blancos striker Karim Benzema's latest injury, which has ruled him out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup for France, leaves the door open for a potential Santiago Bernabeu homecoming for Ronaldo, with the LaLiga club believed to be looking for a centre-forward due to the Frenchman's concerning physical condition.
Real president Florentino Perez is also understood to have a good relationship with Ronaldo, who spent nearly a decade with the 14-time UEFA Champions League winners between 2009 and 2018.
It is further claimed that the Portugal captain would assume a secondary role in the team once the 2022 Ballon d'Or winner returns to full fitness.
Ronaldo remains Real's most prolific goalscorer of all time with an incredible 450 goals in 438 matches for the LaLiga powerhouses.
