Cristiano Ronaldo set to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season

The appointment of Zinedine Zidane as the new manager of Real Madrid isn't likely to have an impact on the future of Cristiano Ronaldo.

This has been reported by the Telegraph, who claim that former manager Rafa Benitez was open to the idea of offloading Ronaldo this summer. 

Despite the appointment of Frenchman Zidane, it appears that Ronaldo will still be allowed to depart the club at the end of the campaign.

And the Telegraph claim that this news will come as a boost to the duo of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, who have long been linked with the superstar's signature. 

Ronaldo departed Old Trafford for a staggering £80 million in the summer of 2009, but it appears that the club could yet be reunited with their former hero as he approaches the latter stages of his career. 

Ronaldo on the move? 

However, the same report claims that PSG are the favourites to land Ronaldo ahead of the 2016/17 campaign. Of course, the future of the Real Madrid ace has long been debated, but this summer could be an interesting one. 

Perhaps, as he approaches his 31st birthday, it really could be time to move on. In truth, a return to Old Trafford appears to be unlikely; Ronaldo is already a hero in Manchester and would surely be on the lookout for a fresh challenge. 

PSG fits the bill, of course; they have the money and credentials to become one of the leading clubs in Europe and the signing of Ronaldo would only enhance their reputation.
