Manchester United are in advanced talks with Real Madrid regarding a potential deal that could see Cristiano Ronaldo return to Old Trafford, the Daily Star understands.
The two clubs have spent the best part of the last two weeks negotiation a package worth £80m, with the Premier League champions confident of getting the deal over the line.
David Moyes increased his efforts to bring the Portuguese international back to Manchester amid Real’s determination to take Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale to the Bernabeu.
The new United manager has so far failed to bring in any of his big name transfer targets, and is keen to secure a marquee signing before the transfer window closes.
Ronaldo has made no secret of his wish to one day return to the club where he won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup, two league cups, the Champions League and the FIFA World Club Cup.
