Real Madrid is Cristiano Ronaldo's best option, while Bayern Munich is intriguing, according to teammate Jose Fonte.

Jose Fonte, Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal colleague, says Real Madrid is the 'best choice' for the Manchester United star.

Ronaldo has requested United to let him leave this summer, but the club is unwilling to sell. All eyes are on the 37-year-next old's move.

The curiosity surrounding his future will only deepen in the coming days as the club has stated he will miss the preseason tour due to an ongoing 'family issue'

The great goalscorer wants to make the most of his final years at the top level rather than spending a season in the Europa League with United.

This is backed up by Fonte, who says his Portugal teammate is infatuated with the Champions League and may not be impressed by the current Red Devils group.

The Lille defender told talkSPORT: “I know he loves the Champions League.” He believes it is the best tournament in the world and knows how to win Ballons d'Or.

"He's a serial winner, as everyone knows. He may be looking at the squad and thinking, "Can I win some titles this year?" Maybe he doesn't believe it. I don't know. Only he can say."

Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Napoli are the major contenders to sign Ronaldo this summer.
