Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has already held transfer talks with Newcastle over the prospect of signing the Manchester United forward in January, according to The Express.

Ronaldo is expected to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window if his contract is not terminated before then after his interview with Piers Morgan in which he hit out at the club and Erik ten Hag.

Premier League side Chelsea have been previously linked with a move for Ronaldo and Newcastle United have now joined the race to sign the 37 year old forward.

Ten Hag is expected to block Ronaldo from ever playing for United again following his controversial comments.
