Major League Soccer side Inter Miami have reportedly made an astonishing move to sign Manchester United’s want-away striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portugal international could be on the move this January after courting controversy and the wrath of Man United fans when he slammed his club and manager in an explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

In the interview, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner accused the Old Trafford side of disappointing him while he also stated that he did not have respect for head coach Erik Ten Hag. He also heavily criticised his former teammates, including Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney- meaning that his time at Old Trafford is surely coming to an end. 

With several clubs already rumoured to be interested in his signature, there are reports that MLS side Inter Miami are seriously considering bringing him to the States.

According to The Sun, the club’s owner David Beckham has spoken to the superstar’s representatives over a move to his MLS outfit.

According to the report, the former Manchester United attacker received a positive response as Ronaldo is interested in a move to Miami.

Meanwhile, Inter Miami isn’t the only MLS franchise interested in signing Ronaldo. According to reports, the Portuguese is also attracting interest from LA Galaxy and LAFC.

But with Beckham present in the picture, Inter Miami looks like the most viable option for Ronaldo now. Also, with former Inter Miami forward Gonzalo Higuain retiring at the end of the MLS season last month, there is a gap in the team’s squad, meaning a move would make sense for both parties.
