Cristiano Ronaldo has re-emerged as a Manchester United’s top target for the summer, according to the Manchester Evening News, despite the $123 million price tag Real Madrid has put on him. The trigger for a sensational return to Old Trafford for the Portugal captain could well be Real signing Tottenham forward Gareth Bale, the report claims. If that happens, then Real would be willing to sell Ronaldo either to United or Paris Saint-Germain. The chain of events would also include Wayne Rooney leaving Old Trafford for Chelsea.
The Guardian corroborated the Manchester Evening News report by claiming that Rooney would only leave if either Ronaldo or Bale arrives at Old Trafford. He will stay regardless of whether Cesc Fabregas joins the English champion this summer, the report said.
