Cristiano Ronaldo could be set for a return to Manchester United, according to reports.
Despite initially refusing to sell David De Gea, Manchester United are now ready to part with the goalkeeper and some £175million in order to land Cristian Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has sparked a crisis at the Bernebeu by reportedly insisting he is ready to leave Spain after being accused of a £13million tax fraud, with a return to Manchester United now looking likely.
Real had been interested in De Gea, but United told them to back off, but the Red Devils are now ready to give their Spanish goalkeeper plus some huge sums in a bid to land Ronaldo, several reports have claimed.Read also: Guardiola prefers to be called Mourinho's name at home
Ronaldo scored 55 goals for club and country last season, shooting Real to the Spanish title and a third Champions League in four seasons.
United also want to sign striker Alvaro Morata from Real but it is believed they will pursue the Spaniard in a separate deal.
Real could reinvest the cash recouped for their prize asset into 18-year-old Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe. The Ronaldo camp are well aware of the Spanish giants' interest in the teenager with the world at his feet.
