Transfer News: Cristiano Ronaldo still open to Juventus exit amid Manchester United interest
According to ESPN, the representatives of former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo are gauging transfer interest from elsewhere despite talks with Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri over his future.
The Portuguese superstar enjoyed 6 successful years at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson before leaving for Real Madrid. And 12 years on, a reunion could well be on the cards.
The report mentions that Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are the clubs who have been contacted in order to see if the 36-year-old has a place in their starting XI next season.
Despite being in the twilight of his career at 36 years of age, Ronaldo has shown no signs of slowing down. Despite a disappointing campaign for the Old Lady, he still managed 36 goals in 44 appearances for them.
That goes on to show that he still has a lot left to give to football. And there is no doubt how much United fans would love to see a club legend return to Old Trafford this summer.
However, his wage demands and the transfer fee could be a problem for any suitor, considering the after-effects of Covid-19 on the club’s finances. He still has one year left on his current Juventus deal.
United have extended Edinson Cavani’s stay at the club by another year but that shouldn’t stop the club from looking for strikers in the transfer window. The Uruguayan is not getting any younger while Anthony Martial’s goal output has been below average.

That being said, a failure to land Ronaldo would also not be the end of the world for the Red Devils. That amount of money could then be used to strengthen the team elsewhere.
