Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has demanded a staggering £500,000 a week in order to return to Manchester United, with Chelsea still said to be sniffing around the player, as reported by the Daily Mail.
A mooted move to Man Utd in the summer of 2013 fell apart as a result of the player’s excessive wage demands, and the player then secured a new deal with the Spanish giants of around £350,000 a week.
Man Utd have shown their capacity to give huge wages too, however, and renewed Wayne Rooney’s contract last year at a sum of £300,000 a week.
They have also added Radamel Falcao, who is being paid around £346,000 weekly, and he shares an agent with Ronaldo in the form of Jorge Mendes.
The idea that Man Utd are now willing to spend big on wages has tempted Ronaldo into considering a move back to the club where he first made his name.
He is thought to want half a million pounds a week to return, a staggering sum by any club’s standards.
