Manchester United to try hijack Ronaldo’s Juventus move?

Cristiano Ronaldo’s proposed move from Real Madrid to Juventus looks to be edging closer with every passing hour, although reports today have suggested that his former club Manchester United may make a last ditch attempt to hijack his £88 million move to Italy and instead bring him back to Old Trafford.

Despite it emerging yesterday that Ronaldo had supposedly already completed a medical with the Serie A Champions, the Sun are reporting that Manchester United CEO Ed Woodward has been studying the finances involved in a deal for the Portuguese star with a view of bring him back to the club he played for between 2003-2009.

Although Ronaldo and current United boss Jose Mourinho had a strained relationship during their time together in Madrid, Woodward still wants to make a move for a player he believes will help his club bridge the gap to Premier League Champions Manchester City and at the same time have massive commercial value.

However, Juventus remain huge favourites to finalise a deal for the 33-year-old five time Ballon d’Or winner, which will surely go down as the biggest coup of the summer transfer window.
