Former Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a move back to Manchester United from Juventus.
Ronaldo,35 still has a lot to offer at the top flight has already scored six goals in six Serie A games so far this season, despite being slow down by coronavirus in the past weeks.
Ronaldo left Manchester United for Real Madrid in 2009 for a then -world-record fee.
“Our sources in Manchester and Porto confirm that Manchester United have tempted Cristiano Ronaldo with a return to the club next season,” the ESPN journalist Christian Martin’s tweet read.
“The Portuguese is analysing it. Juventus would negotiate if he asked for [the move].”
Cristiano has a contract at Juventus until June 2022 and he was viewed as an important signing for the club as they looked to go to the next level, but the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that his hefty salary has become a very heavy burden.
While he was playing for Real Madrid in 2014, Cristiano admitted that he would like to one day return to Manchester United.
“I love Manchester,” he stated. “Everyone knows that.
“Manchester is in my heart. The fans are incredible and I would like to return one day.”
Ronaldo joined Manchester United in 2003 from Sporting Lisbon, he won three Premier League titles and one Champions League with the Red Devils. He scored 118 goals in 292 games.
Juventus is open to the deal as they aim to reduce their wage bill ahead of the coming season.
