Yesterday news broke that Manchester United were pursuing an £80m move for Cristiano Ronaldo, and whilst the source (The Daily Star) wasn’t the most credible it got United fans excited.
There are a number of things that make a return more feasible; Ronaldo’s contract situation, United wanting a marquee signing this summer and now Gareth Bale’s potential move to the Bernabeu has confirmed this.
A number of people have said that whilst it is likely that Ronaldo will play for United again, the likelihood of that happening this summer are slim. But the move has been lent credence by former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon who confirmed to Sky Sports News that talks have been taking place between United and Real to take the Portuguese star back to Old Trafford:
“It seems that Manchester United are interested in having him back. I know there have been talks where they have expressed interest.”
Calderon has previously claimed that Real are so intent on signing Bale out of the fear of losing Ronaldo, leading people to believe that there is a chance that Ronaldo could very well leave the Bernabeu.
