Man Utd willing to buy Real Madrid star Ronaldo - if Mourinho wants him

Manchester United chiefs are prepared to move for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo - should Jose Mourinho want a reunion.

Spanish sources suggest Ronaldo is demanding Real sell him at the end of the season after rejecting a new contract offer.

The Daily Mail says United want Mourinho as part of a long-term strategy after four turbulent years after Sir Alex Ferguson. They have finished seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth in the Premier League.

And the club are happy to follow his transfer targets with Valencia playmaker Carlos Soler, Sweden winger Emil Forsberg, Antoine Griezmann and Gareth Bale all being monitored.

Ronaldo, 32, is regarded as an unlikely recruitment because of his age. Interest would depend on Real Madrid being willing to accept a knockdown transfer fee.
