It seems inevitable that Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave Real Madrid, but where will he end up? You could count on one hand the amount of teams that would be able to afford the transfer fee, never mind the wages for the Portuguese winger.
Firstly Paris Saint-Germain, with their newly acquired wealth from the far east, the French capital would be a perfect match for Ronaldo and his glamorous lifestyle. They are definitely one of the few teams able to match player and club's demands financially.
PSG would also have the luxury of being able to offer him Champions League football. The project they have going on at the Parc des Princes is an exciting one and could be appealing to Ronaldo.
Another option for Ronaldo would be to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu. His relationship with Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is on-off and whether Mourinho will even be at Real Madrid come the end of the season is questionable.
However, Ronaldo is adored in the Spanish capital and fits perfectly in their ethos. Whether he would want to leave and have to settle in somewhere else is also questionable.
The most unlikely of the options for Ronaldo would be to go to Manchester City. A former Manchester United player himself and still loved by Old Trafford fans, Ronaldo would find it hard to go to his former club's biggest rivals.
Again, City are one of the few clubs able to afford Ronaldo but this would be the most unlikely of destinations for the 27-year-old.
Finally, there is Ronaldo's former club Manchester United. He was a hero in Manchester amongst the Red Devils fans. Rio Ferdinand described Ronaldo as like a "pet" to Sir Alex Ferguson.
Theres no doubt that Ronaldo loves Manchester United still and when Real Madrid and his former employers meet in the Champions League next month we will get an indication to what the United fans think of him.
