Cristiano Ronaldo ‘alerts Manchester United by snubbing new Real Madrid contract’
Cristiano Ronaldo has opened the door to a potential return to Manchester United by rejecting a new contract at Real Madrid.
Ronaldo, who has two years remaining on his current deal, is said to have snubbed a three-year extension to his current terms – leaving Madrid stunned.
President Florentino Perez had tried to allay fears the 28-year-old could leave this week by suggesting he was confident the forward would finish his career at the Bernabeu.
‘I think that Cristiano will end his professional career at Real Madrid,’ said Perez.
‘I don’t know whether the Madridistas are very concerned about the contract renewal of Cristiano. He still has a contract for two more years.’
However, the decision to snub the contract, coupled with his admission that he is unhappy at the club, has left a growing feeling that Ronaldo will push for a return to former club United.
Spanish publication AS claim that United have made Ronaldo a key target, and would be willing to part with up to £50million to try and do business.
Ronaldo has previously hinted at a return to United, while PSG are also known to be keen on the player.
