Ronaldo’s form has dipped dramatically this season, as Real Madrid have fallen out of the title race already.

However, he is still the club’s top goal scorer in all competitions, with 16 so far.

Tianjin finished last season in third place under Fabio Cannavaro and qualified for the Asian Champions League.

They also tried to sign Wayne Rooney and Diego Costa in 2017, but were unsuccessful in their attempts.
