Manchester United are keen on bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club this summer and are willing to make the 36-year-old one of the biggest earners at the club. Ronaldo is believed to want a move away from Juventus this summer, with a return to United heavily rumoured.

Reports in the Italian media suggest that Ronaldo’s preference would be a move to PSG, but, with no bid forthcoming, United could swoop in and seal his signing.

And Gazzetta dello Sport claim that United chiefs are willing to offer wages of £17million-a-year to their former star.

That deal would make Ronaldo the second biggest earner at Old Trafford, behind only goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Spanish stopper is comfortably the best-paid player in the current Man Utd squad, and one of four players believed to be on eight-figure annual salaries.

Anthony Martial, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford make up that quartet.

While Ronaldo’s first-choice may be a move to Paris, the Portuguese star remains extremely fond of his former Premier League club, as his compatriot Bruno Fernandes revealed prior to the start of Euro 2020.

“Every time I speak with him, he asks me how Manchester is and if everything is okay,” Fernandes said.

“Everyone knows he spent a lot of time in Manchester and he has consideration for the club.

“He likes the club, I think he won his first Ballon d’Or here, so it’s a club who’ve marked him, for sure.”

Ronaldo scored two goals in his opening game of Euro 2020 to become the record goalscorer in the history of the European Championship.

And the 36-year-old’s man-of-the-match display underlined his continuing quality despite his advancing years.

But his former Manchester United team-mate Rio Ferdinand does not believe Ronaldo will come back to Old Trafford this year.

“I don’t think Ronaldo will happen,” Ferdinand told the Sun.

“That chapter has been written and it’s closed so I don’t think there’s any chance of that happening. Defence is the priority.”
