Cristiano Ronaldo has been tipped to make a surprise return back to the Premier League on loan.
The Portuguese forward joined Saudi Arabian side, Al Nassr, last year after falling out with Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo conducted an interview with Piers Morgan openly criticising the manager and hierarchy of the club.
The 39-year-old has continued to perform since moving abroad, scoring 29 goals and 11 assists for Al Nassr in all competitions.
Finance expert Kieran Maguire has tipped Ronaldo to make a return to the Premier League with Newcastle Utd.
“I suspect we could be moving into a very interesting time in January with talk of Newcastle potentially loaning players from the Saudi Pro League to Newcastle for the second half of the season,” Maguire said via the Price of Football podcast.
“Newcastle are flying at present, playing good football with the current squad but Ronaldo, (Karim) Benzema, if he hadn’t wrecked his knee, Neymar and co. There’s some good players.”
