The wantaway Manchester United star is desperate to play Champions League football next season and has been offering himself to clubs around Europe.

Ronaldo scored 446 goals in 436 appearances for Madrid during the nine seasons he spent at the club.

Los Blancos rejected the thought of signing Ronaldo earlier in the transfer window and Karim Benzema isn’t keen on the idea either. SportsKeeda reported that Benzema is against any move that will see Ronaldo return to Real Madrid.

Since Ronaldo’s departure, Benzema has been Madrid’s golden boy. Benzema score 44 goals in 46 appearances last season as he led Madrid to a Champions League and La Liga double and would hate to take a backseat to the Portuguese superstar again.
