With Manchester United’s season going from bad to worse, it’s already fair to say that Cristiano Ronaldo’s comeback to Old Trafford hasn’t gone as planned.

Despite the star’s 18 goals in this new spell at the club, there’s some clear dissatisfaction with the Red Devils’ recent results, and that could be a reason for him to leave England sooner than expected.

Now according to the latest claims in the Italian media, there are already advanced negotiations for him to move in the summer. It’s said Ronaldo could be on his way to MLS, where David Beckham’s Miami FC could have an easy path to land him.

The claims were brought by journalist Stefano Benzi, who shared his information with CMIT TV.

“From my American correspondence I learned that there’s already the replacement of Gonzalo Higuain who could be none other than Cristiano Ronaldo,” said Benzi.

“There’s a lot of negotiations underway to bring him to MLS, it would be a welcome destination not only for the player, who would have been convinced to leave Europe.

“There’s an important possibility of going to Miami with David Beckham, who has preferential channels with Manchester United. The Americans who manage the Red Devils would gladly get rid of Ronaldo’s salary.”

“In the USA he’d earn a lot, more as a testimonial than by playing football. It’d be perfect for him, for his wife, for his children. Two years in America for Ronaldo are a business of 50-60-70 million dollars a year, not to mention that in November he’ll go to the World Cup. He does the whole season with United, MLS play-offs, then he’d go to the World Cup and at that point he’ll decide what to do.”

Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract with Manchester United running until 2023, with an option for a further year. Now in case the Glazers are really willing to get rid of his salary, it’d be no surprise to see them pulling off a deal which would make his departure easier.
