Ronaldo interested in Man Utd move

According to reports in The Express, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is lining up a move for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo - who could cost more than £150m - in order to keep Antonio Conte at the club.

The Portugal global insists he wants to leave Spain after allegations of £12.9million fraud.

It claimed his decision was "irreversible" and that he has already told his Madrid team-mates that he wants to leave.

Both Bayern Munich and PSG are ready to meet the asking price of Real Madrid, but it's Manchester United who have the upper hand due to their "cash+player" bid.

Ronaldo is accused of defrauding the authorities of 14.7 million euros in tax through offshore companies.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported last night that the club are trying to calm Ronaldo down and get him to reconsider his position. So why does he want to leave?

"I only had to listen to Dr. Lobo Xavier [ António Lobo Xavier] firstly because he speaks very clearly about it and explains the situation very well - to understand there was no subject to discuss. Not because they can't pay the money but because they need to offer him the possibility of winning titles and personal awards", the former Real president, whose tenure (2006-2009) was sandwiched by Florentino's two terms, added.

Ronaldo is said to have informed former boss Sir Alex Ferguson of his intent to quit the Spanish club this summer, citing the grounds stated above. However, if the speculations are to be believed, there are only a handfuls of club sides around the world that could afford the 32-year old.

"I am sure he will stay in Europe", he said.

"I have a pact with my players, I have a great relationship with each of them".

The potential availability of the Portugal worldwide, one of the most marketable players in the world, would alert a number of top clubs, plus big-spending Chinese Super League sides looking to make a statement.
