Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a surprising return to Manchester United for a long time, and the Portuguese star could return this summer.
According to FC Juve through Fabio Santini, Jorge Mendes has offered the Red Devils the opportunity to reclaim their prodigal son. For a return to Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo is also ready to take a pay cut.
During his time at Old Trafford, the Portuguese player went from being a skinny teenager to one of the most feared players in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo was a huge success at Manchester United before moving on to Real Madrid.
The Portuguese transferred to Juventus to try his mettle in Serie A after a decade of excellence at the Santiago Bernabeu. Cristiano Ronaldo's first two seasons at the club were successful, but he has yet to lead his team beyond the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
Juventus has suffered in the league this season and is in danger of losing out on the spot in the Champions League next season. A drop would not entice the five-time Ballon d'Or winner to the Europa League, which is why he could leave Turin this summer.
Fabio Santini said to 7 Gold that Manchester United had been given the opportunity to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer. If they give him a two-year deal, the Red Devils will sign him.
This season, Manchester United has made steady progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The former United striker has instilled in the new squad the ideologies and ethos of the past.
At Old Trafford, the Norwegian's master plan is slowly taking shape. A change for Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, might not be high on his priority list.
Manchester United will be on the lookout for a right-winger this summer, and Jadon Sancho remains their top priority. The Red Devils' willingness to change their plans and get Cristiano Ronaldo home in the summer window remains to be seen.
