Cristiano Ronaldo could be headed back to Old Trafford in the summer.
That is according to reports in Italy, linking the Portuguese striker with a swap deal involving Paul Pogba.
Ronaldo is reported to be unhappy with Juventus after a disappointing season in which they exited the Champions League early and have failed to defend their Serie A title, with Inter Milan set to end their nine-year Serie A dominance.
And speculation was further raised at the weekend when he threw his shirt to the floor after the derby match with Genoa, apparently in disgust at his teammates, although it was later explained away as a gift to a ball boy.
Juventus do not want him to leave publicly, but saving on his £26 million a year salary has its advantages for the Italian club whose finances have been hard hit by the pandemic.
CR7, as he is popularly known, played 292 games for United between 2003 and 2009, scoring 118 goals, before he was sold to Real Madrid for what was a world record fee at the time.
