Should Man United bring Ronaldo back — Transfer Focus

Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Man Utd

As such, the forward has made clear his position to Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president, and is now "determined" to leave Spain.

The 70-year-old construction magnate's third term in charge of Europe's most successful club spanning 15 years - 2000-2006 and since 2009 - will be rubber stamped at a ceremony at the Santiago-Bernabéu Stadium later Monday.

When you quit a club like Real Madrid, then any possible destination will perhaps be a step-down.

Manchester City have also been linked with the signature of Ronaldo, but given his love and respect for Manchester United, it is hard to see the the once Reds moving to wear the Blues.

Italy's "Gazzetta dello Sport" had speculated that Bayern is set to swoop for Ronaldo so he can link up with the German club's former Real coach Carlo Ancelotti.

They have accused him of evading tax of €14.7m (£13m, $16m).

Ronoldo is now with the Portugal national team at this summer's FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

And Spanish newspaper Marca say Pepe has told Ronaldo: "Let's go together to PSG".

Onda Cero say Perez will "give his version of the "Ronaldo case" in an interview with the Spanish radio station late on Monday evening, while an event marking his re-election will be held at 6.30pm United Kingdom time at the Bernabeu's presidential box.

However, looking at the latest odds, the 32-year-old is in fact odds on (2/5) to remain at the Bernabeu.

"In the Spanish league, we've had the best footballers of our time, [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and we want to keep them".

Paris Saint-Germain are out at 8/1 at the moment, with a move to the MLS or Chinese Super a League both available at 20/1. Spain star Portuguese striker has won 12 trophies, including three victories in the Champions League and also netted in all competitions 406 goals in 394 matches.

Perez's opponents have criticised reforms in the club statutes which have toughened criteria for aspiring candidates.
