Manchester United are on the verge of completing a stunning £80m deal to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford this summer, according to reports today.

The Daily Star claim the champions made an official enquiry two weeks ago after learning that Real Madrid were inching closer to signing Gareth Bale from Tottenham, and the Spanish giants indicated they would be willing to sell the Portuguese superstar after he made it clear he’d be open to a return to England.

Ronaldo has just two years left to run on his current contract and is yet to agree terms over an extension. Madrid have always maintained the attacker would see out the rest of his career at the Bernabeu but the report claims that when president Florentino Perez approached him about committing to a new deal, he was left stunned when Ronaldo expressed an interest about returning to United instead.

It was this acknowledgement that forced Real into negotiations with United chief Ed Woodward as they know full-well that Ronaldo’s value would drop drastically next summer when he’d have just 12 months left to run on his contract.

The two clubs have been locked in negotiations over the past 12 days and the newspaper suggests an £80m deal is now close to being agreed with United confident they will lure the 28-year-old back to Old Trafford this summer.

Madrid’s apparent willingness to sell Ronaldo may also explain their determination to sign Bale, with the La Liga club expected to break the world transfer record to land the Welshman which would appease disgruntled fans when they learn Ronaldo could be on his way out.

The Star also claim that some of Ronaldo’s wages will be offset by United’s sponsor, American car giant General Motors, who will make the player their global ambassador.

It will certainly be a stunning coup if United manage to pull it off and would surely settle any nerves fans had following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. But nothing is official yet so we have to take this as speculation until we hear something concrete from the clubs.

    Like every United fan I would be over the moon to see Ronaldo back at Old Trafford. I still find it hard to believe that this could happen at this moment in time. I still think the most important thing is for Moyes to address the gaping hole in the centre of midfield as this will be exposed next season, especially when you consider how much stronger City and Chelsea will be with the signings they have made. I think its time to switch attention away from Fabregas as all signs suggest that he will be staying at the Nou Camp.

    I think it is possible considering that Real are looking for Gareth Bale so Cr7 could be alowed to move and i would be so happy to see that happen

    So Madrid’s going to pay £100M plus for Bale and sell Ronaldo for only £80M!!?? Who’s the better player and scores more goals per season!! Ronaldo is going nowhere unless Man U pay a more than double their valuation and even then why would he go back as Ferguson had left & still to win CL with Madrid!!??
