Real Madrid have decided to let go of the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of the season. Real president Florentino Perez has decided to cash in on the player rather than offer him a bumper new deal and has valued Ronaldo at 60million euros (£48.2m).
Ronaldo, whose contract with the Spanish club ends in 2018, has not been able to shine at the Bernebeu stadium which has lead to his relationship turning sour with the Real fans.
United has been linked heavily with the player last summer with regards to his potential return to the Old Trafford, however, nothing came off it, and this time around too United are said to be looking to bring the player to the Old Trafford.
The Portuguese player has always been a favorite at the Old Trafford since he joined the club at the age of 18 years from Sporting Lisbon. Ronaldo spent six years at Manchester United and helped the club win many honors during his time there.
While Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in signing Ronaldo, recent reports suggest that the club is now looking out for Barcelona star Neymar and made him their top priority, this leaves United with no competition whatsoever.
