Manchester United make a formal offer for Cristiano Ronaldo reunion. He spent six years at Old Trafford having joined from Sporting Lisbon.
Manchester United have reportedly made a formal offer to super agent Jorge Mendes in a bid to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford, 11 years after he departed for Real Madrid.
The 35-year-old Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from Juventus in recent weeks with reports emerging that the Italian champions want rid of the superstar and his £28million per year salary.
Portuguese newspaper Record, via SportWitness, were the first to break the story of Ronaldo heading to Madrid in 2009 and have now detailed how United have ‘made a formal offer’ to Mendes, who represents the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
The financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic have seen elite clubs across Europe look to curb their spending and reduce their wage bill and Juventus are no different.
His current deal runs until 2022 and given Ronaldo’s desire to continue playing, talk over his future has intensified following Juventus’ disappointing start to the new season.
