The Red Devils have already announced deals for right-back Diogo Dalot and midfielder Fred, but Jose Mourinho is believed to be keen on a marquee signing in this window.

Reports suggested that United could go after their former player Ronaldo, who recently hinted he is unhappy at Los Blancos and could leave in this window, but the Premier League side would reportedly prefer Gareth Bale instead.

"Ronaldo's agent has met with Florentino Perez to try and push the matter and get the contract he feels, and Cristiano feels, he deserves," English journalist Duncan Castles has claimed, as quoted by the Daily Star.

"And they have got no positive response to that. The stance at present it is unlikely he will remain at Real Madrid beyond the end of the summer and they are looking for outs.

"They don't think Manchester United is a strong possibility because United are well stocked in that area of the field and more likely to recruit on the right-hand side of attack and are working on a deal for Gareth Bale."

Spanish publication AS has claimed the Welshman is not short of offers after his Man of the Match performance in the UEFA Champions League final, but Real are believed to be unwilling to sell him for less than €150 million (R2.4 billion).
