STUNNER! Man Utd in Mendes talks about shock return for Juventus star Ronaldo

Manchester United have made contact with Jorge Mendes about a sensational return to Old Trafford for Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Juventus' current poor run has left the 36-year-old angry and tired of playing for a side that has not been able to match his ambitions this season.

And United have made their interest in bringing the Portugal star - who Juventus would reportedly sell for as little as £26million (€30m) - back to Old Trafford known, having spoken with his representative and super agent Mendes last week.

However, while the report adds Juventus would be very happy to get rid of the former Real Madrid star's £27m (€31m) salary, the player himself reportedly has no intention of giving up such wages until his contract expires in June next year.

The report however adds that while his annual salary would need to be halved for United to make a move, Ronaldo could still be tempted to forego those economic ambitions to return to the club where he made his name and that more than any other believed in him, having felt a lack of support this season in Italy.
