Manchester United are set to enter the race to sign to sign Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo but the Red Devils face competition from Juventus, according to a report.

The Sun, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that Manchester United are ready to put a package together to sign the Portugal international this summer.

The same article states that Juventus have managed to agree terms with Ronaldo ahead of a sensational switch to Turin following nine seasons in the Spanish capital.

According to the same story, Ronaldo has been the subject of intense discussions amongst the Manchester United hierarchy over a potential summer deal to bring the club legend back to Old Trafford.

The Sun goes on to suggest that the 20-time English champions see no reason why they shouldn’t rival the Serie A giants for the 33-year-old’s signature in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season but the Red Devils were unable to win any silverware following a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

The Red Devils have signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred and FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot so far this summer.
