CRISTIANO RONALDO has offered himself to Real Madrid in order to escape Old Trafford, according to reports.
Benzema was forced to pull out of France’s World Cup squad after picking up a thigh injury – though Didier Deschamps confirmed he would not be calling up a replacement for the Ballon d’Or winner.
Ronaldo himself fell ill earlier this week after linking up with the Portugal squad for their own World Cup campaign.
In terms of getting a move, Ronaldo’s problem thus far has been an inability to find someone who can accommodate his huge wage demands.
Ronaldo currently earns half a million pounds per week at Man Utd.

The 37-year-old revealed he rejected an offer from Saudi Arabia worth an eye-watering £3million per week.
In the interview Ronaldo also aimed both barrels at the club, Erik ten Hag and former team-mates.
