Man Utd ‘to splash Champions League cash on Cristiano Ronaldo transfer with Paul Pogba heading to Juventus in swap deal’


MANCHESTER UNITED want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus this summer, according to reports in Italy.

And this could lead them to making a massive move.

According to Calciomercato, United want to mark Champions League qualification with an ‘important’ signing.

And Cristiano Ronaldo fits the bill.

They claim that the Portuguese hasn’t ruled out a return to Old Trafford one day.

With his wages reportedly crippling Juventus’ finances, the Old Lady may want to cash in with a year remaining on his contract.

Ronaldo is 36, and has not featured in a single Champions League semi-final during his time in Turin – with Juve also looking likely to surrender their Serie A title for the first time since 2011.

They also claim that Pogba, 28, could return to Juventus as part of the process.

Like Ronaldo, the Frenchman will also have just a year remaining on his contract come the summer, with Mino Raiola having infuriated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by admitting his client wants to leave United just 24 hours before a huge clash with RB Leipzig.

Pogba’s form has recovered since then, however, and he delivered a scintillating performance against Tottenham on Sunday as United ran out 3-1 winners in North London.

While Man United will want to keep Pogba in his current form, the Italian report reckons that they are set for an ‘important’ chat with Juventus over the futures of the two star players.
