Cristiano Ronaldo is refusing to confirm or deny reports that he’s agreed an extension to his Real Madrid contract thus fuelling rumours he could be on his way out of the club.
Reports surfaced last week that David Moyes and Manchester United were exploring the possibility of Ronaldo making a block-buster return to Old Trafford for a fee in the region of £80m once they became aware Gareth Bale was a serious and viable target for Real Madrid in a record triple-figure deal.
With two years remaining on his current contract, the time to sell Ronaldo, if of course Madrid were ever stupid enough to, would be now.
Here’s a question for the many (if not all) United fans who believe United need to strengthen their midfield as a priority:
IF Ronaldo was the ONLY United signing of the summer, would you be satisfied and would our squad be strong enough to not only defend our title, but have a serious crack at the Champions League?
