Widespread reports on Friday claimed Ronaldo had made the ‘irreversible’ decision to leave the Bernabeu following his charge of tax fraud in Spain.

The motives behind his desire to leave the club, where he’s won three Champions League titles, are yet to be revealed but the news is of huge interest to former club Manchester United.

Despite their differences, Jose Mourinho would love to be reunited with Ronaldo at the Theatre of Dreams and United are one of just a handful of realistic options should he force through his departure.

Madrid, however, are trying to remain calm about Ronaldo’s decision and have slapped a deterring £175.4m price tag on the forward, according to Marca.

The club do not wish to sell Ronaldo but Marca claim they will listen to offers in the region of their valuation.
