Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly made a plea to his agent Jorge Mendes to seal a return to Manchester United.
The Portuguese superstar continues to be linked with a sensational comeback at Old Trafford after apparently making an ‘irreversible’ decision to leave Real Madrid.
Ronaldo has been accused of tax fraud in Spain amounting to £13million, triggering his desire to escape La Liga.
And, according to The Sun, the Theatre of Dreams is his preferred destination, and he has reached out to his agent to broker a switch back to United.
Ronaldo joined United in 2003 aged 18 and went on to score 118 goals in 292 appearances for the Red Devils in six years.
He left for Real in 2009, becoming Los Blancos’ record goal scorer with 406 strikes in 394 outings to date.
As reported in Monday’s Mirror, United are willing to go all out to land Ronaldo over the summer, including letting David De Gea leave for the Bernabeu.
Although he has interest from China, Ronaldo wants to remain in Europe and United could have massive competition from PSG who intend to use their own financial firepower to make a rival bid.
Ronaldo scored 55 goals for club and country last season, shooting Real to the Spanish title and a third Champions League in four seasons.
United also want to sign striker Alvaro Morata from Real but it is believed they will pursue the Spaniard in a separate deal.
Real could reinvest the cash recouped for their prize asset into 18-year-old Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe. The Ronaldo camp are well aware of the Spanish giants’ interest in the teenager with the world at his feet.
Elsewhere, Mourinho is ready to test Blaise Matuidi’s loyalty to PSG.
The Manchester United boss is a big admirer of the midfielder who wants playing guarantees and is currently stalling on a new deal.
