Ronaldo's current deal with the Old Lady is scheduled to run until 2023 having joined them in 2017 on a five year deal.

On his part, current United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not hid his desire to have Ronaldo within his ranks having recently admitted he would not waste a minute to snap him up should an opportunity arise.
