Man United are in talks to sign Cristiano Ronaldo next summer with Juventus looking to offload their star player, according to sensational reports.
The Serie A champions are believed to be keen to offload the former Real Madrid star next summer.
Juventus are keen to cash in before his contract expires at the end of the 2021-22 season and offload his £540,000-a-week wages.
And Man Utd are claimed to be in talks with Ronaldo, according to well-respected FOX America journalist Christian Martin.
Ronaldo is claimed to be ‘considering’ the offer, with Juventus ‘willing to negotiate’ with Man United.
Martin tweeted his 400,000 followers: “Our sources in Man United and Porto confirm that Man United tempted Cristiano Ronaldo with a return to the club for next season.
“The Portuguese star is considering it.
“Juventus will negotiate a deal it if Ronaldo asks for it.”
The Italian giants are considering selling Ronaldo for financial reasons after being hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.
Ronaldo rakes in £540,000 a week – nearly four times as much as the club’s next-highest paid player, Matthijs de Ligt.
The player scored once in Portugal’s 7-0 rout of Andorra in a friendly on Wednesday, moving a step closer to becoming the all-time top scorer for a national team.
Ronaldo reached 102 goals with Portugal to sit seven shy of the 109 scored by former Iran striker Ali Daei, the only other male soccer player to surpass the 100-goal milestone for a national team. Ronaldo broke the century mark after scoring twice in Portugal’s Nations League win over Sweden in October.
Coming off a minor knee injury and having recently been sidelined by a positive COVID-19 result, Ronaldo entered the match after halftime at the Stadium of Light in Lisbon. He made it 6-0 with a close-range header in the 85th minute after having squandered a few good chances.
He had replaced Pedro Neto, the 20-year-old Wolverhampton forward who was making his national team debut and opened the scoring for Portugal in the eighth minute. João Paulo added to the lead in the 29th and Renato Sanches scored in the 56th.
