Real Madrid to offer Ronaldo back to Man United
Real Madrid will offer Cristiano Ronaldo back to Manchester United for €60m (£48.5m) this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish publication ES have claimed that Real have decided to cash in on the 31-year-old at the end of the season because his contract expires in 2018 and he will only lose value.
Ronaldo played for United between 2003 and 2009 before his then-world record £80m move to Real. The Portuguese scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for the Old Trafford side, and won three Premier League titles, three League Cups, one FA Cup and one Champions League in a trophy-laden spell with the club.
He left United to join Real for a then-world record €100m in 2009.
Ronaldo has enjoyed another prolific campaign this season, scoring 42 goals in 40 appearances for Real in all competitions.
Despite defeating Barcelona 2-1 on Saturday, it has not been the best of campaigns for Real. They are seven points behind leaders Barca and lost 2-0 to Wolfsburg last night in the Champions League quarter-final first-leg.
