The news regarding Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo is starting to heat up with uncertainty over the Portuguese strikers intentions after putting his Madrid home on the market for 5.4€ million.
A few months back we reported that a deal had been arranged between Manchester United and the team’s main sponsor Nike in an effort to get the Adidas wearing Real Madrid star back at Old Trafford and into a Nike jersey once more.
Everything seems to be pointing in the direction of CR7 returning to Old Trafford with him refusing to sign a new contract with Madrid, and with only two years remaining on his current contract Real Madrid president Florentino Perez know that now would be the best time to cash in on their costliest player before his contract expires.
It is no coincidence that Real Madrid have with the advice of Zinedine Zidane lined up Tottenham’s Gareth Bale as Ronaldo’s replacement in a deal that could see a world record transfer fee should Perez and Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy agree a deal.
England international Wayne Rooney has also said he wants to leave Manchester United, and with French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain telling the striker to name his own terms, not only would it give United some of the cash needed to sign Ronaldo but would allow the £250,000 a week salary he makes to pay Ronaldo’s wages.
Since Leaving Old Trafford in 2009 the now 28-year-old Ronaldo has kept in close contact with Sir Alex Ferguson and his former Red Devils teammates, and would have no problems moving back to Manchester.
The signing would also be a huge boost for new manager David Moyes as he takes over from Sir Alex Ferguson who reigned supreme at the club for 26 years.
