Cristiano Ronaldo exit speculation intensifies

Speculation surrounding the future of Cristiano Ronaldo as a Real Madrid player has intensified after the reported transfer window target for Manchester United placed his house up for sale.

Ronaldo's position at Real Madrid has been the subject of constant conjecture over several months after it was revealed the Portugal captain was unhappy with life at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, however, insists Ronaldo is not available for transfer, while the player himself has previously stated his intention to stay with Los Blancos for the duration of his contract.

But reports on Ronaldo's future persist and further suggestions he could join Manchester United are set to surface after it was revealed the 28-year-old has put his villa on the outskirts of Madrid on the market.

The property boasts seven bedrooms and includes two bedrooms in its acre of grounds, and is available to potential buyers at a cost of €5.4 million, as advertised by estate agency Promora.

It may be that Ronaldo is simply looking to move to another home in Madrid, but this most recent development is likely to excite Manchester United fans desperate for their former hero to return to Old Trafford.

Manchester United are reported to have already made plans to bring Ronaldo back to the club during the summer transfer window, although the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson may have an impact on any proposed deal.

Ronaldo left Manchester for Madrid in 2009 for a world record transfer fee of £80 million and has scored 201 goals in 199 appearances during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.
