Man United trying to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid [M.E.N]
Manchester United are interested in re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo according to a Manchester evening news report.
M.E.N. Sport understands United are working on what could be a new club-record deal to bring Ronaldo back to Manchester six years after he joined Real Madrid for a world record £80m.
Although United have completed deals for Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, the club is determined to secure a marquee buy in the vein of Angel di Maria’s British record £59.7m arrival last year.
United explored the possibility of signing Ronaldo during David Moyes’ first transfer window in 2013, however the three-time Ballon d’Or winner signed a new contract until 2018.
"There was talk of Ronaldo when I first arrived," Moyes said last year. "We were close to getting a couple of major names."
Ronaldo, 30, is believed to be unhappy with the arrival of Rafael Benitez as Real coach
With the above claims by M.E.N sport, it all seems as a mere assumption and nothing concrete about the report.
