Ronaldo has one more year left on his current deal and it is unsure if he will still be at the Allianz Stadium next season.

The former Real Madrid forward was seen transporting his cars from his Turin-based mansion through a cargo company believed to be headed to Portugal amid exit links from the Old Lady.

A few clubs are showing interest but Paris Saint Germain and Manchester United appear to be in the lead and it is left to be seen if he would remain in Italy or adventure somewhere new.
