Cristiano Ronaldo handed sudden exit route as Man Utd transfer swap deal emerges

Manchester United have been linked with a move for wantaway Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix – amid the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo moving the opposite way.

Felix wants to leave the Spanish capital club at the earliest possible opportunity and ideally in the January transfer window, having fallen out of favour under boss Diego Simeone. He has completed 90 minutes just once this campaign – and is no longer viewed as a key player for Los Rojiblancos.

Ronaldo, 37, has been intent on departing United for the past four months after his high-profile return from Juventus last year did not go to plan. Despite netting 24 goals across all competitions last season, United’s collective form nosedived, and they finished a distant sixth in the Premier League.

Ronaldo stormed down the tunnel at Old Trafford after Manchester United’s dominant two-goal victory over Tottenham – with boss Erik ten Hag axing the star from the upcoming trip to Chelsea this weekend. It is now anticipated that he will leave Old Trafford next year, and potentially as early as the January transfer window.

Felix – the club’s record signing – is now closer to an Atletic exit than ever, with Diario AS claiming that United are one of three possible destinations for the 22-year-old, alongside Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
