According to reports in Spain, the Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team has been told he is free to re-join Manchester United in a £75million deal next summer.
Cristiano Ronaldo who became Manchester United’s first-ever Portuguese player when he signed before the 2003–04 season. His transfer fee of £12.24 million made him, at the time, the most expensive teenager in English football history.
Don Balon claims Los Blancos are willing to cash in on their record goalscorer, who has looked below his usual high standards so far this season. The outlet claims the club will allow Ronaldo to move on and build their team around Isco, who it is claimed no longer wants to play second fiddle to the Portuguese star. Isco has in previous seasons been in and out of the Real Madrid team but has arguably been their most consistent player this season, having scored four times and assisted three more from nine starts in La Liga.
And with Isco seemingly seen as the future of the Real team, it’s reported that the European champions want to cash in Ronaldo now while he still retains some value in the market. Furthermore, it’s claimed the player will be granted the return to Old Trafford he craves with a fee of £75million being suggested.
