Man Utd hope to sign Real Madrid star Ronaldo in time for Ferdinand testimonial

Manchester United have already pencilled in Cristiano Ronaldo for his 'debut' second time around in preseason.

The Sun says they hope to sign the world superstar for £65million — and complete the biggest transfer in British football history.

United want to unveil Ronaldo on August 8 and then play him in Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial against Sevilla the day after.

But Ronaldo himself last night delivered Old Trafford chiefs a blow, insisting he has still not ruled out a new deal with Real Madrid.

He said: “I’m calm. I’m not worried about it, I know we are going to reach an agreement to sign a new deal and for that if I am honest, I’m not preoccupied about it.”
