Manchester United Contact Super Agent Over Possible Ronaldo Return
According to Fichajes.net (Spanish), Manchester United have contacted Jorge Mendes over the possibility of a Cristiano Ronaldo return. The Real Madrid superstar has always said he won't rule out returning to Old Trafford, but it would take a mammoth offer to get Real Madrid to sell.
The reported amount would be north of €100million, however there may be room for negotiation. Jeorge Mendes' monopolisation of European football is such that he has clients almost everywhere. Manchester United's 'keeper David De Gea is one of those clients. Feuds between Louis van Gaal and Mendes have been reported in the press and the super agent may be angling to get De Gea back to Spain. If United could use Mendes as a middle-man, they're more likely to get a realistic and agreeable deal out of Madrid.
It's still all a bit of a pipe-dream, but with reports of Manchester United looking at bringing Gareth Bale back to the Premier League, their fans can be confident something big seems to be stirring and Real Madrid appear to be involved.
