Cristiano Ronaldo has suddenly stunned Spanish giants Real Madrid and the entire world of soccer by publicly notifying the reigning La Liga champions he wants to leave this summer. CR7, as he is fondly called, is ready to quit Real Madrid this summer after tax evasion charges were allegedly leveled against him by the Spanish tax office. However, if the speculations are to be believed, there are only a handfuls of club sides around the world that could afford the 32-year old.

Ronoldo is currently with the Portugal national team at this summer's FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.

Cristiano Ronaldo signed a new five-year contract with Real Madrid in December 2016. Interested clubs would certainly have to break the bank to lure him before agreeing to his eye watering weekly wage demands. Here's a look at the four possible destinations for Cristiano Ronaldo should he quit Real Madrid this summer

Manchester United

Obviously, is a dream move for the both parties.

The Portuguese superstar enjoyed his six year period at Manchester United and has most time spoke of his undying love for the Red Devils. Ronaldo played under fellow compatriot Jose Mourinho at Santiago Bernabeu and Manchester United could still afford his services. With his current age in mind, would Ronaldo actually want to risk “tarnishing” his first-spell in the English Premier League? On the other hand, the 32-year-old could probably be an ideal replacement for the outgoing United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Paris Saint-Germain

The Lure of an even more mouthwatering deal, as well as a massive project to help the French giants Paris Saint-Germain win the UEFA Champions League, could be enough to woo the Portuguese superstar to France. PSG are currently one of the few teams in the world that could afford the 32-year-old.

Bayern Munich

When you quit a club like Real Madrid, then any possible destination will perhaps be a step-down.

Aside from Manchester United and Barcelona, the next best team in the world would probably be Bayern Munich, managed by former Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti. The Portuguese superstar would also get the opportunity to win a major club silverware in another elite European league. While Bayern Munich is being surrounded by top-notch soccer stars and consistently competing for the UEFA Champions League title, would the German giants, rich as they are actually able to afford CR7?

Major League Soccer - possible US destination, LA Galaxy

Given his skills, the idea that Ronaldo might conquer the U.S. one day should not surprise you. This would most likely only happen after his top-notch career starts to wind down. Major League Soccer would certainly be a huge step down. However, it remains to be seen whether teams in the MLS could even afford his services, but Cristiano Ronaldo would no doubt like the American kind of lifestyle, though Ronaldo would probably be retiring if he eventually moves to the United States.
