MANCHESTER UNITED superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is willing to take a pay cut to leave Old Trafford, reports suggest.
Ronaldo, 37, has fallen out of favour and his future at United is uncertain after he was axed from the squad by manager Erik ten Hag.
The axe fell when the five-time Ballon d’Or winner refused to come on against Tottenham on Wednesday and stormed down the tunnel with injury time still to play.
As a result, Ten Hag didn’t include the star forward in the squad for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea and ordered him to train by himself at Carrington.
According to The Athletic, the Portugal international could push for a move away from the Red Devils and potential suitors have been informed he is willing to accept a lower salary.
The star forward looked to leave last summer but no Champions League sides showed interest.
If the 37-year-old receives no offers in January then United would be open to letting him go for free if a mutual agreement is reached to terminate his contract.
Ten Hag will also not look for a replacement if Ronaldo ultimately puts an end to his second stint at Old Trafford in the New Year.
Chelsea appear a potential candidate to swoop in for the Real Madrid legend.
The Blues were one of several clubs contacted by the ex-Juventus star’s representatives last summer after he decided to leave the Manchester giants.

The West Londoners’ owner Todd Boehly was keen to bring the Portugal captain over to Stamford Bridge but former manager Thomas Tuchel opted against a potential deal.
But with Tuchel now gone and replaced by Graham Potter, Boehly could be keen to renew his interest and explore a swoop in the New Year.
Chelsea appear to consider a temporary deal that would see CR7 stay until the end of the season with an option to extend into a second term.
