Man Utd star wants to join Real Madrid in January
Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo is open to reuniting with Real Madrid on a free transfer in January.
The Portuguese star recently criticised manager Erik ten Hag in an explosive interview conducted by Piers Morgan.
United are expected to react by terminating his contract and Sport claim that he could make a possible return to Madrid.
Karim Benzema recently picked up a thigh injury and reports say that Los Blancos are concerned over his situation.
They don't want to rush him back to action, and Ronaldo is mentioned as a possible solution to fill the striker void.
The 37-year-old is ready to accept a huge pay-cut to rejoin the club and it remains to be seen whether they are keen on him.
Madrid president Florentino Perez has dismissed a reunion with Ronaldo on several occasions in the past couple of years.
Manager Carlo Ancelotti has also ruled out any January signings, but the scenario could change after Benzema's injury.
