According to Diario Gol, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has offered £70m and Paul Pogba to Real Madrid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer. The 33-year-old left United for Los Blancos in 2009 and is one player the Red Devils have been desperate to bring back to Old Trafford.
Ronaldo has gone on to score and create 582 goals in 437 games for Real since his 2009-move, winning three Champions League trophies, two La Liga titles and two Copa Dey Rey trophies. The Portuguese international has been in outstanding form this season too, contributing 52 goals in 44 games in all competitions, and has a Champions League final to come on Saturday.
Mourinho did say earlier in the season that he wouldn’t be strengthening his attack in the transfer market as he felt Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez were sufficient enough. However, Ronaldo would be a different story. The world-class forward might not be open to leaving Real, even for his former club, as his deal runs until 2021.
Ronaldo has shown no genuine desire to exit the Santiago Bernabeu, and his asking price and wage demands might be too much for United to meet. Paul Pogba could certainly be on his way out of Manchester, after a fallout with Mourinho and having nearly joined Real in 2016, but it may not be as part of a deal for Ronaldo.
