Manchester United have reportedly made a formal offer to agent Jorge Mendes over a deal for Cristiano Ronaldo.
United are said to have been keeping an eye on Ronaldo’s situation amid reports that Juventus need to reduce their wage bill.
The former United star currently earns a whopping £28million a season with the Serie A giants.
And such a wage would also appear too much for United who are eager to keep spending down through the coronavirus pandemic.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side likely to rekindle their interest in Jadon Sancho in the summer, a move for Ronaldo as well would likely be too significant an outlay.
Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with a move for Ronaldo, with a swap deal involving Neymar mooted.
