The Sun says the former United star wishes to quit Real Madrid and return to Old Trafford, a day after boss Alex Ferguson admitted he would love him back.
Ronaldo, 27, has already told pals as well as ex-Red Devils team-mates he wants to “come home”.
The bombshell news comes days after Real Madrid were pitted against United in a mouthwatering Champions League tie.
Madrid would want around £122m for their prize asset.
But selling him would easily cost club president Florentino Perez re-election this summer.
Ronaldo is keen to move back to a club where he is loved like no-one else and not just another star. Also he wants to work again with Fergie.
