Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United looks even closer after a falling out between his agent Jorge Mendes and Ronaldo’s current club Real Madrid, as reported by the Daily Express.
Ronaldo has been interesting Man Utd in recent seasons, and the Balon D’or winner seemed perturbed by Angel Di Maria’s departure from the Santiago Bernabeu earlier this summer.
Mendes came under criticism from Real hierarchy after allowing another of his clients, Di Maria, to publish a letter criticising the upper echelons of the Spanish giants after he secured his move to the Old Trafford club.
With another of Mendes’s clients, Radamel Falcao, also moving to the Manchester side this summer, there is increased belief that Ronaldo can be tempted into a move back to the club where he made his name.
Reports in Spain even suggest that Mendes is going to convince Ronaldo to move back to Old Trafford, and Man Utd have put aside £55 million for the purpose of signing him.
