Cristiano Ronaldo offered Man Utd escape route by Brazilian side Corinthians to join ex-Chelsea and Arsenal ace Willian | The Sun

CRISTIANO Ronaldo has been offered an escape from his Manchester United misery… by Brazilian giants Corinthians.

The Portugal superstar hopes to end his second Old Trafford stay amid discontent over the Red Devils' failure to secure Champions League football.


Ronaldo made his first pre-season appearance in a 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano, but was subbed at half time.

And boss Erik ten Hag branded the 37-year-old's conduct "unacceptable" after the frontman left Old Trafford before the end of Sunday's game.

Corinthians president Duilio Monteiro Alves has now declared his ambition to bring Ronaldo over to the Portuguese-speaking nation.

The Sao Paulo club recruited ex-Chelsea and Arsenal star Willian last year, and former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Renato Augusto is also part of their squad.
