Manchester United are the only Premier League club that Cristiano Ronaldo would consider joining this summer, according to reports.
The Daily Record is reporting that Ronaldo isn’t interested in a potential move to Chelsea or Manchester City in the 2017 summer transfer window.
Ronaldo’s future has been a source of intense speculation over the past week after it emerged the 32-year-old forward informed Real Madrid of his desire to quit the Spanish capital.

“To go back to England there is only one club,” a close friend of Ronaldo said. “Cristiano has to respect his past.”
Ronaldo won three Premier League titles, the Champions League, two League Cups and two FA Cups under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Portuguese forward completed a then-word record £80m move to Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009.
