Manchester United has appeared as head of the table of those interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo amidst reports of Machester City’s interest.
United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said the club is available if Cristiano Ronaldo decides to leave Juventus.
“I don’t want to speculate too much,” said Solskjaer as quoted by United’s website.
“Cristiano has been a legend of this club, he is a legend of this club, he’s the greatest player of all time, if you ask me.
“I was fortunate enough to play with him, I coached him. He almost retired me, because of that Wolverhampton game when I got injured, he kept switching sides! He’s such a tremendous human being as well, so let’s see what happens. Everyone who’s played with him has a soft spot for him.
“I didn’t think Cristiano was gonna turn out leaving Juventus. It’s been speculation the last few days, of course,” Ole added.
“We’ve always had a good communication. I know Bruno has been talking to him as well. He knows what we feel about him. If he was ever going to move from Juventus, he knows that we’re here.”
Reports also have it that United have been in talks with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, on bringing back their former Number 7 to Old Trafford.
Based on previous reports, Manchester City were reluctant to pay a fee to Juventus for Cristiano Ronaldo. However, that is not the case with Manchester United.
The Red Devils are currently negotiating Ronaldo’s potential salary and also a fee for Juventus, which was reported to be around €30 million.
