Man Utd eye Ronaldo
Manchester United have not given up hope of signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
That is the stunning claim coming from the Sun this morning.
Ronaldo is expected to join Juventus in an £88m deal and sign a lucrative four-year contract worth £106m.
But United are supposedly still in for the player, with Ed Woodward feverishly working out whether a matched bid is viable.
United would likely be able to meet Ronaldo’s wage demands but the up-front fee Real are seeking may be the sticking point.
Jose Mourinho has already spent £69.5m on Fred and Diogo Dalot this summer.
