Reports suggest Real Madrid have offered their all time leading goal scorer Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United for 60 million euros.

According to reports from Sport.es, Real Madrid are reportedly set to put the Portuguese superstar on the transfer market. With his age catching up and two years remaining in his contract, the Madrid giants seem to have no plans for an extension. They will look to offload their all time leading goal scorer and expect to make more than half of what they paid for him in 2009.

Ronaldo was reluctantly sold to Madrid but the Portuguese is still adored at the Stretford End and would be welcomed back to Manchester with open arms. Ronaldo has never shied away from declaring his love for the Red Devils even while representing Los Blancos. He was famously cheered even after knocking Manchester United out of the Champions League in 2013, scoring against them in both legs.

The report goes on to say that Ronaldo’s team and Madrid are both looking for the best possible solution and are already negotiating a way out for the Portuguese forward this summer. The Real Madrid star has also made ​his financial demands known. Los Blancos will demand around 60 million euros for the 3 time Ballon D’or winner. Cristiano will be looking to get between 20 and 25 million euros per year from any possible suitor. PSG had already shown interest in taking the services of the Portuguese captain, but are reportedly more keen on Barcelona’s Neymar due to the age factor and career longevity.

One assumes Ronaldo would love to head back to Manchester, where he became one of the best players on the planet. But the lure of Paris could also tempt the Portuguese to consider an ambitious PSG who are looking to establish themselves as a European powerhouse. Cristiano, even after his exploits in front of goal for Los Blancos, has never really been on the best of terms with the notoriously demanding Real Madrid fans. A switch to Manchester, where he is worshiped, would be a welcome change as he looks to move on to the next stage of his career. United have the financial backing to acquire the services of any player they wish, but a lot has changed in 7 years at the club and it would be interesting to see whether the Portuguese would come back to a lack of Champions League football and a possible reunion with Jose Mourinho.
