Cristiano Ronaldo next club odds: Sporting favourites after Manchester United split

Sporting are the 2/1 favourites to sign Cristiano Ronaldo after he left Manchester United through mutual agreement.

United issued a statement on Tuesday evening announcing they had reached a settlement with the player to terminate his contract. That development comes just a week after Ronaldo unsettled the club in an outspoken TV interview.

After his old club, Chelsea are the second-favourites to sign the striker, with 'Any MLS Club' next on the odds available with Sky Bet.

Ronaldo, 37, rejoined United for a second spell last year but he had fallen out of favour this season under new manager Erik Ten Hag.

The Portuguese issued his own statement which read: “Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early.

“I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge.

“I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.”
