Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is interested in completing a blockbuster return to Manchester United, per multiple reports in Europe.
Juventus are set to miss out on the Serie A title for the first time in ten years and have once again failed to make progress in the Champions League.
Ronaldo moved to Turin from Real Madrid in 2018 to help the perennial Italian champions lift their first European title in the 21st century.
However, nothing has gone according to plan so far.
Juventus have not only faltered in the Champions League, but they are now facing financial turmoil due to the coronavirus crisis.
After failing to secure economic stability through the ill-fated European Super League, the Serie A giants may need to sell some of their star players.
The 36-year-old’s contract at the Allianz Stadium will run out at the end of next season, and Juventus may be willing to cash in on their standout performer this summer.
Fabio Paritici is ready to negotiate the Portugal captain’s departure on the basis of £25 million, with the player asking for an £18m annual salary.
Before joining Madrid in a then-record-breaking £80m transfer back in 2009, Ronaldo had enjoyed stellar six years at Old Trafford.
Often deployed as a winger during his career in Manchester, he notched up 118 goals and chipped in with 69 assists in 292 appearances in the red shirt.
Despite his age, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner remains one of the fiercest forwards in world football and would be an instant improvement on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current attacking options.
