Manchester United give Cristiano Ronaldo condition to return this summer
Manchester United have told Cristiano Ronaldo that he would have to cut his current salary in half, if he wants a return to the club this summer, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Premier League club has been in touch with Ronaldo’s agent over a move.
The 35-year-old’s future in Italy has remained uncertain, ever since their shock Champions League exit at the hands of Porto last month.
Juve’s nine-year league dominance also appears likely to end this year, as they sit 11 points behind leaders Inter Milan, with just six fixtures left.
EXCLUSIVE: Ronaldo set for free-kick ban at Juventus
United have made their interest in bringing the Portugal captain – who Juventus could sell for as little as £26million (€30m) – back to Old Trafford known and have spoken to his representative, Jorge Mendes last week.
However, Ronaldo who is on an annual salary of £27m (€31m), would be prepared to take half of that at Old Traffrod.
