Roma 'trying everything' to ferry Ronaldo away from Man Utd

AS Roma are pushing hard to open talks with Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Retesport says Roma are 'trying everything' to land Ronaldo this summer.

Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from Manchester United in recent days, with reports suggesting he's unhappy with the lack of transfers at Old Trafford so far this summer.

Bayern Munich have rubbished suggestions they're eyeing up a transfer, but Roma have now been touted as a possible destination.

Former Roma defender Fabio Petruzzi told Rete that he has information from his old club confirming they are in pursuit of the Portugal international.

A move to Roma would see Ronaldo reunite with fellow countryman and former boss Jose Mourinho, who had the superstar forward at Real Madrid.

There's more Portuguese connection at Roma in the shape of director Tiago Pinto, who is in charge of transfers.
