Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly close to joining Juventus, but it is said that Manchester United are said to believe that they can convince him to return to his former club.
Reports have claimed that the Portuguese is nearing a transfer to the Old Lady, with his agent Jorge Mendes dropping a big hint on his client’s future recently by saying if he does leave Real, he will always be thankful to them.
However, according to the Sun, United vice-chairman Ed Woodward is considering swooping for the 33-year-old before he commits to Juventus.
United emerged as favourites for his signature moments after Ronaldo admitted he was considering his future at Los Blancos, but in recent weeks, the Italian giants seems his preferred destination.
The Red Devils reportedly believe the Portuguese could still be convinced to return to England, though all reports say the Portuguese forward is set on joining the Bianconeri.
If Jose Mourinho’s United fails to persuade Ronaldo of a move, the club may turn their attention back to the likes of Willian and Gareth Bale.
Ronaldo and Mourinho share the same agent, which is what United hope will aid them in being able to persuade the superstar to return to the club.
