Ex-Roma stars insist move being made for Man Utd star Ronaldo: July 7 announcement

Former Roma stars Angelo di Livio and Fabio Petruzzi are insisting they're attempting to bring Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo back to Italy.

Ronaldo left Juventus for United only a year ago, but is unsettled after a disappointing past season at Old Trafford.

Di Livio told Rete: “I know from various sources that Roma are trying to sign Cristiano Ronaldo and July 7 could be the date of the announcement.

"It is an indiscretion, but it circulates insistently in the world of football. By chance I spoke with a friend who works on television and who found out about the negotiations for Cristiano from an important club manager at a dinner a few days ago."

Petruzzi has also stated: “I know from a good source, from a very reputable person, that Roma is trying to get Cristiano Ronaldo by all means. Details will have to be ironed out, for image rights, but I know he will leave United."
