Manchester United prefer record Gareth Bale deal over Cristiano Ronaldo return

The widespread rumours about Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid are refusing to die down.

Neymar made a world record transfer move to Paris-Saint-Germain from Barcelona previous year August, and he has been linked with a move to Real Madrid since January 2018.

Manchester United has reportedly opted to prioritise their pursuit of Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale over attempting to bring team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club this summer.

Reports also indicate that Ronaldo believes Real Madrid have not supported him well enough with regards to a potential court case surrounding image rights.

Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Inter and Roma are just some of the sides who could potentially benefit from Ronaldo's exit after nine trophy-laden years in Spain.

"If the president wants to sign someone, the president will sign him".

Record claims that the five-time Ballon d'Or victor has reached this conclusion, less than two weeks after winning his third straight Champions League with Madrid, not because of money but rather status, and because of unkept promises from Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Madrid won their 13th Champions League title a couple of weeks back and their star forward Ronaldo has hinted that he will be leaving the club this summer. Real Madrid doors are always open for Neymar.

"It was very nice to be at Real Madrid, in the coming days I will talk about it more".

Marcelo has also suggested that Neymar will one day inherit a crown now owned by Ronaldo.

"I'm a big fan of Ronaldo as well, but I think Messi is the greatest ever".

In the current 4-2-3-1 setup, the double-pivot stays deep and full-backs do not tend to stretch play, so opposing teams were able to crowd out the four most advanced players.

We have already signed one midfielder, with Fred arriving at Old Trafford, however, there is no doubt that we could do with someone of the ability of Kroos.
