Reports on Monday suggest that Manchester United are still very much in the hunt to bring back their former player Cristiano Ronaldo, with certain financial implications surrounding the deal.
It had been reported by various press sources in the UK that new Manchester United Boss David Moyes was to engineer a deal for the unsettled Portuguese winger, who has spoke of his unhappiness at Real Madrid at times last season. Speculation about his future at Madrid has continued to grow and Ronaldo himself was quick to deny a recent report that he had signed a new contract with Madrid.
The price could be an issue as the Portuguese International has two years remaining on his contract and it would certainly have to be a big money offer if Madrid would be prepared to let their superstar leave, however if the player is unhappy and wants the move, this could make the difference.
The situation seems a complicated one and suggestions had been made that Ronaldo would stick out his two year contract with Madrid in order to leave on a free, and demand a £60 million signing on fee with his new club. United have other plans, they want him back at Old trafford this season and it is said both them and the player could well be pushing the move through now.
The 27-year-old joined Real Madrid 6 years ago in 2009 after making a world record £80 million move to The Bernebeu and at the time describing it as a dream move. The controversial forward would certainly contemplate an emotional return to Old Trafford and the supporters there certainly haven't forgotton him.
