Manchester United continue to be linked with a sensational return for former attacker Cristiano Ronaldo and following the Portuguese star’s brace in the Euros on Tuesday, the speculation was always going to resurface.
Ronaldo, 36, led his country to a brilliant 3-0 victory over Hungary during Group F’s opener on Tuesday evening.
A double, including a successfully converted spot-kick, saw the Juventus superstar smash the European Championship’s all-time leading goalscoring records.
The record, previously held by France’s Michel Platini, stood at nine goals – Ronaldo’s recent brace now sees him ranked number one on a whopping 11 goals.
In fact, so impressive was the Portuguese attacker once again, that according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Red Devils are poised to re-sign the 36-year-old.
Following a disappointing campaign last season, Juventus could now be preparing for their superstar to depart this summer.
With United strongly linked, it has also been suggested that French side Paris-Saint Germain are also in the mix for the attacker.
GdS claim that the Red Devils are ‘waiting’ and prepared to offer the 36-year-old a bumper £17m-per-year contract in a deal that could see current midfielder Paul Pogba move the other way.
