Manchester United are trying to re-sign Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, six years after he left Old Trafford for the Bernabeu.
This is according to the Manchester Evening News, who understand United could potentially break the world transfer record in order to bring the three-time Ballon d’Or winner back to England.
Although Real Madrid will be reluctant to sell their prized asset, who turned 30 in February, Barcelona-based newspaper Sport claim the Spanish club will not be able to keep the player if he decides to leave.

Sport claim Ronaldo is “unhappy” at the Bernabeu - they categorically state that the relationship between the world-class winger and new head coach Rafael Benitez is “not good” - and this is echoed by the M.E.N.
Ronaldo has only been working under ex-Liverpool boss Benitez for a couple of weeks, but there already appear to be cracks in their relationship.
Ronaldo 'unhappy' under Benitez
Benitez did himself no favours by refusing to declare Ronaldo as the world’s best player last week - although the Spanish coach attempted to rectify that earlier this week - while several recent training ground incidents suggests the pair haven’t got off to the best start.
Manchester United fans are used to being linked with their old hero Ronaldo - who scored 61 goals in all competitions last season - but while most are a little sceptical about the new reports, others are already getting excited.
Here are some of the best tweets.
