According to emerging report from Portuguese outlet Record, Manchester United could agree a deal for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo who has “made the decision to leave the La Liga club”. Ronaldo, who’s earning £365,000 per week, was reportedly promised a new deal by Real president Florentino Perez but unfortunately, the Spaniard hasn’t stayed true to his word.
Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, has three years left to run on his current deal with 13-time Champions League winner, meaning by the time this contract expires, he will have turn 36. Ronaldo recently scored hat-trick for Portugal in the World Cup fixtures against Spain and had 44 goals in all competitions for Los Blancos last season.
The Red Devils have kept an interest in their former player and they could look to steal a match on Real with this current situation. If it turns out that the Portuguese is unhappy at Bernabéu, the club could decide on bringing him back to Old Trafford this summer. Ronaldo registered over 290 appearances for United between 2003 and 2009, winning three Premier League titles, two League Cups one FA Cup and one Champions League.
Although, re-signing him would mean Man United will have to break the bank once again as he have release clause of £876m, but United could agree a deal for considerably less given his advancing age will underpin his lower value.
