A non-league football team based in Crewe have made the first bid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo - offering the former Manchester United player £35-per-week.

AFC Crewe, who play in English football's 14th tier, made the 'official approach' to Ronaldo on Tuesday (November 22).

The South Cheshire club play in the Crewe and District Premier Division and are the first team to have made an official bid for Ronaldo's services.

Today (November 24), AFC Crewe told Nub News their publicity had 'gone crazy' following the approach to Cristiano Ronaldo (AFC Crewe).

In a social media post, AFC Crewe said: "We can confirm that the club has made an official approach to sign free agent Cristiano Ronaldo on a one year deal.

"Should Cristiano accept the offer, he would become AFC Crewe's highest paid player, taking home £35 per week."

Ronaldo's Manchester United contract was officially terminated on Tuesday - with AFC Crewe making him an offer almost immediately.

The 37-year-old's departure from Manchester United came after the Portugal striker claimed he was being "pushed out" by Manchester United bosses.

Ronaldo gave a surprise interview to Talk TV host, Piers Morgan - broadcast on 16 and 17 November.

The free agent went as far as saying he did not respect United boss, Erik ten Hag - also claiming ex-team mate Wayne Rooney was jealous of him.

Following nationwide media attention of the club's offer to Ronaldo, AFC Crewe responded on social media yesterday (November 23).

A follow-up statement read: "The train from Piccadilly to Crewe is £14.90 return.

"Our offer ensures he can afford the trip plus either an Upper Crust at Crewe station or a pint after the game. We eagerly await your response."

Today (November 24), AFC Crewe told Nub News their publicity had 'gone crazy' following the approach.

On Thursday (Novembee 24), Cristiano Ronaldo became he first ever player to score in five different World Cup tournaments (Wikimedia Commons).

Ronaldo scored a penalty in Portugal's 3-2 World Cup group stage victory against Ghana on Thursday (November 24).

The goal made Ronaldo the first ever player to score in five different World Cup tournaments.
