The Blues won’t approach the superstar, though, unless United fires him first.

The executives of the Red Devils have threatened to take legal action against Ronaldo, age 37, and are prepared to break up his contract.

But first, they require legal assurance that they can end Ronaldo’s contract without paying him a dime.

According to reports, United may even sue Ronaldo over claims that his recent remarks have hurt the team’s brand and cost them money.

In a shocking interview with SunSport journalist Piers Morgan, Ronaldo criticized the club’s management over the previous ten years.

The club, according to the Portuguese, has not advanced since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013.

He also said he did not respect Erik ten Hag and criticized the club’s choice of interim manager Ralf Rangnick last season.
