Manchester United dreams of re-signing Cristiano RonaldoThe English want to have Cristiano Ronaldo again
Any team on the planet dreams of having Cristiano Ronaldo on their roster. The forward marked an era in football mainly during his time at Real Madrid and, after trying his luck at Juventus, he would not look down on returning to the first team that trusted him when he was still a simple promise at Sporting Lisbon: Manchester United.
According to the Italian media Gazzetta dello Sport, representatives of the English team have contacted the CR7 agent to demonstrate his interest in repatriating the Portuguese and start negotiations in search of reaching an agreement. After being eliminated in the last 16 of the Champions League against Porto, Cristiano's path in Vecchia Signora would be finished and he would seek new horizons.
In addition, he also has little chance of reaching the Serie A title as he is 11 points behind Inter with six dates remaining. The only thing left to play is the final of the 2020-21 Italian Cup against Atalanta on May 19 at the Olympic Stadium in Rome where he will seek to add one more star and access the possibility of fighting the Super Cup against the champion of the Italian league.
From Italy they report that for 30 million euros Juventus would be willing to let CR7 go. The main reason for such a figure? It would get rid of an impressive salary of 31 million euros per year that expires in June 2022. But from Manchester United they recognize that Cristiano will have to cut his salary by half to just agree to sit down to negotiate.
With David De Gea and Paul Pogba as the highest paid players on the Red Devils squad, the English team will not mind giving him the highest possible salary but without reaching the stratospheric figures that he manages today at Juventus. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with the idea of signing the Portuguese alongside the plan to bring his former Real Madrid teammate and 2018 world champion Raphael Varane to Old Trafford.
But from England they know that it is still early to get excited: from the shadows, Florentino Pérez and the White House wait for the transfer window to approach to analyze if it is time to have 7 again with the shirt of the Spanish capital. The forward, who scored a total of 451 goals in 438 games for Real Madrid, is awaiting offers to analyze the possibility of stepping on the Santiago Bernabéu again.
