Cristiano Ronaldo is prepared to take a significant pay cut in order to escape Old Trafford, according to Ben Jacobs.

The CBS Sports Golazo journalist reports that the Manchester United forward could agree to a deal 30 per cent lower than his current contract if it meant playing Champions League football next season.

However, no club involved in Europe’s stellar competition are currently prepared to take a chance on the 37-year-old, with both Madrid clubs – Atletico and Ronaldo’s former side Real – ruling themselves out.

Jacobs also states that agent Jorge Mendes offered the Portuguese legend to Barcelona, who opted instead to sign Robert Lewandowski.
