Man Utd kicked into action as PSG make bid for Real Madrid star Ronaldo

Manchester United must overcome mega rich PSG to bring Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford this summer.The Sun says the French Ligue 1 leaders have contacted Real Madrid with a 'substantial offer' for the former Old Trafford idol.

That has prompted United to speak with Ronaldo's agent in a bid to see off a potential move to the French capital and get the 28-year-old back.

United - who sold Ron to Real for £80million in 2009 - are willing to offer £65m plus a player - most likely Nani - if they get the green light from Ronaldo's people that the player wants a move.

But they have now been panicked by PSG's move. A United source said: "United are not happy now PSG have made their move with a substantial offer.

"They will not give up, however, and have told Ronaldo's agent of their intent."

The Qatari backed big spenders from France are understood to have offered Real £80m.

They would also top any wage offer by United who would make him joint top earner at Old Trafford with Wayne Rooney on £250,000 a week.

His main sponsors Nike would also offer the player further incentives to move back to United.

 Can United deliver Ronaldo a shock return? Or will PSG's money be too much? Give us your shout below...
