In an interesting turn of events, Cristiano Ronaldo has, once again, offered his services to Real Madrid, as reported by SPORT. The Manchester United striker is facing the sack at Old Trafford, and could become a free agent as early as January.

This comes on the back of his interview with Piers Morgan, where has openly admitted that he does ‘not respect Erik ten Hag’, while also dumping on Manchester United’s sporting facilities, and the lack of etiquette from his teammates.

Madrid meanwhile, are dealing with Karim Benzema’s injury, who is now set to miss the World Cup after picking up a knock in training for France. Ronaldo’s entourage jumped on the opportunity and have submitted a six-month proposal to Madrid.

Benzema has been struggling with fitness all season, and has only participated in 50% of the total league games (7/14) so far.

Carlo Ancelotti has chosen to deploy Rodrygo in Benzema’s striker role, but to mixed success so far.

Napoli and Sporting Lisbon are two of the other teams considering a move for the Portuguese, while Chelsea are keeping tabs from within England given their poor goalscoring form.

Ronaldo is more than open to a return to Madrid, which is further boosted by Jorge Mendes’ friendly relationship with the club.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
