David Beckham has spoken to Cristiano Ronaldo about the possibility of signing for Major League Soccer side Inter Miami in the January transfer window, according to journalist Pedro Almeida.
Ronaldo was linked with a move away from Man Utd in the previous summer transfer window. Reports said Ronaldo had asked Man Utd to allow him to leave should they receive a suitable offer.
But an exit never materialized, with the interest in the Portuguese superstar few and far between. Man Utd had also insisted Ronaldo was not for sale.
But reports recently emerged have said Man Utd will allow Ronaldo to leave the club in the January transfer window.
David Beckham spoke to Cristiano Ronaldo about possibility of January Inter Miami move
According to Almeida, Beckham, who is a co-owner of Inter Miami CF, has spoken to Ronaldo about the possibility of joining the MLS side in January.
Ronaldo has had a difficult start to the 22/23 season. The 37-year-old has only one goal so far for Man Utd from nine appearances this season.
That goal came in Man Utd’s 2-0 win over FC Sheriff in the Europa League, with the star striker converting a penalty to score the Red Devils’ second goal of the match.
Ronaldo has also seemingly lost his place in the Man Utd starting XI. He is no longer starting every game for the Old Trafford outfit. In fact, he has made it to the Man Utd starting XI only on four occasions this season, and just one of those came in the Premier League.
Ronaldo has so far featured in six games for Man Utd in the Premier League this season. Five of those were appearances off the bench. Ronaldo was also left as an unused substitute when Man Utd faced Manchester City in their previous Premier League match.
While reports have indicated Ronaldo will look to seal an exit from Man Utd in the January transfer window, it remains to be seen if the Portuguese will be open to a move to MLS at this point.
Ronaldo reportedly wanted to leave Man Utd in the summer in search of Champions League football. The Red Devils missed out on qualification for this season’s Champions League after finishing sixth in the Premier League last season.
Would that Ronaldo then accept a move to MLS at this point? Or will he be aiming to seal a move to a Champions League club? Or will he choose to fight for his place in the Man Utd starting XI? Only time will tell.
