Manchester United have reportedly been given the chance to match Juventus’s offer for Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Reports in the Spanish press emerged this week suggesting that the Portugal international is on his way to Juve in a £106m deal.
The 33-year-old, who has scored 450 goals in 438 games for European champions Madrid, will supposedly be paid wages of £500,000 a week in the Italian capital.
In a potential twist, however, The Sun reports that United could yet table an identical bid of their own, giving the five-time Ballon d’Or winner a chance to return to Old Trafford.
Portuguese outlet ‘O Jogo’ are reporting on their website that Ronaldo has accepted an offer from the Italian giants, which would see him earn €120m over four seasons.
With Portugal out of the World Cup, the country’s press has turned its attention to the star striker’s every move.
The aforementioned outlet is stating in no uncertain terms that Ronaldo has said yes to Juve, who have been a fan of the 33-year-old since he was a youngster.
‘O Jogo’ go further and explain the reasons behind Cristiano’s intention to leave. Firstly they suggest that he has fallen out with Real Madrid’s president, stating that his relationship with Florentino Perez has broken down completely.
