After questioning Real Madrid's decision to sell several key players this summer, Cristiano Ronaldo has now dropped a hint about returning to Manchester United in the near future.

"I am happy here in Real Madrid and have four more years, but in the future you never know because they treated me unbelievably there," he said.

"I really did love being at Manchester United. Believe me, they will be a good team again. I'm sure of it. It is a great club."

Ronaldo also backed the club's new signings, adding: "I do think they did well to buy Di Maria and Falcao. I think the team will be much better. I want to see them better because it is such a fantastic club and they deserve to be better."

Full story here.

If Manchester United want Paul Pogba back they'll have to spend around £60m to make it happen but, according to the Daily Express, that's exactly what they plan to do.

Pogba's Juventus contract expires in 2016 and, if he fails to agree a new deal, the Serie A champions will reportedly look to cash in next summer.

Juventus chief Beppe Marotta said recently: "We have had some negotiation with his agents, we hope to arrive at a positive conclusion shortly."

However, if an agreement cannot be reached, United are ready to swoop with a £60m bid, while Real Madrid and Chelsea are also interested.

According to talkSPORT, Manchester United failed with a deadline day offer for Barcelona wonderkid Adama Traore.

'(Spanish) newspaper Sport have claimed that United pursued a move for the 18-year-old starlet until the very close of the window - and could go back for him in January,' report talkSPORT.

'United have held a long-standing interest in the teenager, and the arrival of Louis van Gaal as manager has not changed the club's stance.'

We don't know anything about him, but apparently Traore is a speedy winger who made his debut at the age of 17 last season.
