All attempts by the 37-year-old Portuguese star to leave Manchester United and join a new team during the current summer transfer period have so far been unsuccessful.
Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético Madrid are all clubs that refused to sign Ronaldo despite wanting a player with the perks and characteristics of a Portuguese star.
The only offer Ronaldo received this summer was from a Saudi club, but the Portuguese star turned him down because, despite his advanced age, he wanted to continue playing in Europe and fight for the Champions League.
