Ronaldo's future with Real Madrid has been the subject of intense speculation this season following the revelation of his unhappiness at the Santiago Bernabeu earlier in the campaign.

A return to Manchester United has been touted as a summer transfer window possibility, while Sir Alex Ferguson has publicly stated that he would love to have Ronaldo back at Old Trafford.

However, should Manchester United make a move for Ronaldo, they are likely to have to contend with the financial power of PSG - who demonstrated their clout with the acquisition of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the last transfer window.
