Reports suggest that Cristiano Ronaldo's desire to play in the UEFA Champions League this season could go unfulfilled, with no top sides interested in the Portuguese forward.

Messi Makes Big World Cup Announcement

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has been yearning for a move away from Old Trafford since the off-season, but he might have to wait even until the end of the campaign before he can say goodbye to the Mancunian club for the second time.

As per ESPN, the Red Devils have accepted that Ronaldo will see out the duration of his contract with the club as there is a lack of interest from elite teams in Europe in the 37-year-old.

During the past transfer window, it was reported that Ronaldo wanted to leave for a number of reasons, but mainly because of a lack of UEFA Champions League football, and while the likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Napoli were all initially interested in acquiring his services, United never received any offers from them.

The Portugal captain has been used predominantly from the bench this season, something his manager Erik ten Hag has said the forward is "pissed off" about, while he has started all three of the club's UEFA Europa League games so far in this campaign.
