Ronaldo left Manchester United in November after publicly slamming the club.

But he has been on the lookout for a new club since the summer, and was turned down by the likes of Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Napoli.
Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt also said no to Ronaldo, 37, with bosses at the club hinting that the superstar was becoming desperate.
Executive board member Axel Hellmann indicated Ronaldo was offered to several clubs across Europe.
He told DAZN: “He was even offered to us,” while Philip Holzer, chairman of the club’s supervisory board, added: “I have the feeling he was offered to every Champions League club.”
Ronaldo wants to continue playing Champions League football for as long as possible but there does not appear to be a willing suitor.
Instead, the Portuguese could opt for a lucrative offer in the Middle East.
Ronaldo has reportedly been offered a two-and-a-half year contract worth £173million-a-year with Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Nassr.
Sporting Lisbon have also been linked to the striker, but manager Ruben Amorim is now refusing tobe drawn into speculation on Ronaldo’s future.
In his press conference following Sporting’s 5-0 Taca da Liga win over Braga, Amorim said: “Ronaldo was in Qatar, they had the opportunity to ask him and they didn’t.
“I’ve been asked 500 times and I already answered.”
