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