Manchester United are hesitant about becoming embroiled in the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer saga this summer, according to reports
Manchester United have doubts about re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports.
Sky Sports is reporting that Manchester United are reluctant to become embroiled in a media circus surrounding Ronaldo’s future this summer.
The 32-year-old is thought to have informed Real Madrid of his desire to leave los Blancos this summer after being accused of tax fraud in Spain.
The same article states that Manchester United are concerned about the potential cost to sign Ronaldo, as well as the inevitable complications involved in any such deal.
Portugal international Ronaldo moved to Real Madrid in a then-word record £80m fee from Manchester United in the 2009 summer transfer window.
Ronaldo won three Premier League titles and the Champions League during a decorated six-year career at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese forward has enjoyed great success in Europe with Real Madrid after winning the competition three times in the past four seasons.
Manchester United haven’t won the Champions League since Ronaldo scored in normal time of their penalty shootout victory over Chelsea in Moscow in 2008.
