Man Utd makes Cristiano move but will re-sign him under one condition.
Manchester United have made contact with Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent over a return of the Portuguese to Old Trafford according to reports in Italy.
Ronaldo’s future at Juventus remains unclear since Juventus’s shock defeat to Porto that handed the Italian giants a Champions League exit at the hands of Porto last month.
Juventus’s nine-year Serie A dominance also appears likely to be coming to an end, with the club now sitting 11 points behind leaders Inter Milan with just six games remaining.
According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus’ current poor run has left Cristiano angry and tired of playing for a side that has not been able to match his ambitions this season.
The same outlet further claims Manchester United have made their interest in bringing the Portugal star back to Old Trafford with Juventus reportedly willing to sell for as little as £26million (€30m).

Manchester United are reported to have spoken with his representative and super agent Jorge Mendes last week regarding a possible reunion. Juventus would be very happy to get rid of the former Real Madrid star’s £27m (€31m) salary, the player himself reportedly has no intention of giving up such wages until his contract expires in June next year.
The report however adds that while his annual salary would need to be halved for United to make a move, Ronaldo could still be tempted to forego those economic ambitions to return to the club where he made his name and that more than any other believed in him, having felt a lack of support this season in Italy.
United boss and Ronaldo’s former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would reportedly be thrilled to coach him for at least a year, while Juventus would be willing to sell the player in their bid to rejuvenate their squad.
