Real Madrid sensation Cristiano Ronaldo could make an astonishing return to Manchester United this summer but only if the Red Devils stump up the £80 million valuation that the Spanish giants have placed upon his head, according to The Daily Star via The Sun.
It is reported that the man holding all the aces at present is super agent Jorge Mendes who is also the representative of incoming United boss Jose Mourinho, which could make the move a real possibility.
A Manchester United fan here in the Transfer Tavern has overheard this astounding news and has just knocked several glassed off his table in disbelief.
Ronaldo holds a long-term affinity with the Premier League club and it is thought that a return to Old Trafford would be the only move that would tempt him away from Real Madrid in the future.
The 31-year-old will hope to be fit when his team face Atletico Madrid this Saturday in the Champions League final, with speculation over his future likely to continue through the summer months.
Manchester United fans, would you welcome Ronaldo back to Old Trafford? Where would you play him in the team?
