CRISTIANO RONALDO is ready to leave Real Madrid for Manchester United – if Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah heads to the Bernabeu this summer, according to huge claims in Spain.
Ronaldo doesn’t want another star player to overtake him as the key man at Real Madrid admid links with Salah.
And, according to Don Balon, Ronaldo has told Madrid he has a stunning offer on the table and could complete a sensational return to Old Trafford.
Manchester United remain linked with Ronaldo amid the player’s Bernabeu contract woes.
The 33-year-old wants pay parity with Lionel Messi and Neymar after driving Los Blancos to a fourth Champions League final in five years.
Reports in the past have claimed Ronaldo may even threaten a stunning United return if Real refuse to bow to his demands.
And Spanish outlet Don Balon say the Red Devils would gladly accept him – for both on pitch and commercial reasons.
Jose Mourinho is becoming desperate for a marquee player as he targets Premier League glory next season.
United finished a huge 19 points behind champions Manchester City this season.
As a result, Mourinho reportedly wants more stardust and Ronaldo, despite being 33, would fit the bill.
The 54-year-old sees Ronaldo as the perfect acquisition as other blockbuster players are primed to go elsewhere.
The website, known for their outlandish transfer claims, have tipped United to pursue Liverpool’s Salah in the past.
Neymar is unlikely to leave PSG, despite reports over the weekend saying United were in the mix for his signature.
And Tottenham’s Harry Kane, a long-term Red Devils target, is supposedly on Manchester City’s radar.
United could even afford a deal for Ronaldo via the help of shirt sponsors Chevrolet.
Yet whether the prodigal son makes a stunning Old Trafford return remains to be seen.
