The Daily Star Sunday says Ronaldo has told a senior player at Old Trafford that he would seriously consider that proposition.
And United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted he will have the backing of the club’s owners – the Glazer family – to make a major splash in this summer’s transfer window.
There are persistent rumours that United are trying to buy him back for £65 million and overcome obvious financial hurdles by having his wages sponsored.
Ferguson would love to bring back Ronaldo, 28, but has always insisted it would be a difficult deal to complete.
