In a blow to Man City, Manchester United is in discussion with Jorge Mendes about Cristiano Ronaldo’s return.
Manchester United will not want Cristiano Ronaldo to join Manchester City in a contentious transfer.
Manchester United are in talks with Jorge Mendes about bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back before the transfer market closes, according to reports. Juventus are willing to let the 36-year-old go. Manchester City, on the other hand, are presently the frontrunners in the race to recruit him.
Ronaldo was first signed by Manchester United in the summer of 2003 as a replacement for David Beckham, who had moved to Real Madrid.
Despite his evident talent, the Portugal international required three years to acclimate to life in the Premier League, with his trickery and flicks occasionally backfiring.
But Ronaldo emerged from a brawl with Wayne Rooney at the 2006 World Cup as a rejuvenated player, leading Real Madrid to three consecutive league victories and the Champions League trophy in 2008.
As a result, he is revered at Old Trafford as a club icon.
Ronaldo, on the other hand, may be poised to risk ruining his legacy with a contentious transfer to Manchester City.
The Premier League winners have spoken to the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, about a possible return to the Etihad Stadium.

Everything is silent on United’s end.
The Red Devils are expected to seek elsewhere after signing Tom Heaton, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane so far this summer.
However, according to Alex Crook of talkSPORT, United have been in contact with Mendes about a spectacular return for Ronaldo, though a deal remains doubtful.
He tweeted, “Understand Mendes has been in contact with #MUFC regarding a possible emotional return to Old Trafford, but it looks doubtful.”
Since joining Real Madrid in 2009, United has been connected with Ronaldo almost every year.
And it appears that something might happen on that front presently.

However, it appears like Ronaldo will return to England donning City’s sky blue colors.
And that would undoubtedly enrage many Old Trafford supporters, especially given how they continue to scream his name at matches after all these years.
Paris Saint-Germain is also a possibility.
