Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti is ready to give Manchester United a friendly alternative if they're forced to sell Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

United are furious with Real Madrid's public pursuit of their star man and El Mundo Deportivo says Moratti is prepared to step in and take Ronaldo off United's hands from under Spanish noses.

Moratti is convinced United would prefer to sell Ronaldo to anyone BUT Real Madrid and has the cash to land the Portuguese. New Inter coach Jose Mourinho would love to work with his fellow Portuguese and has already given Moratti the green light to explore the possibility.
