Manchester United set to land Cristiano Ronaldo, despite Ferguson leaving

Despite manager Sir Alex Ferguson stepping down from his role as Manchester United manager, United look set to land Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo in a mega transfer this summer.

Spanish paper Marca are reporting that outgoing United chief executive, David Gill, has been over in Spain, holding talks with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes over a possible deal.

Real Madrid look set for a major shake up in the summer, with manager Jose Mourinho set to leave to join Chelsea, players look set for moves too. The club confirmed that striker Gonzalo Higuain will be allowed to leave, whilst United are confident they can lure Ronaldo, who scored his 200th goal for Madrid this week against Malaga, back to Old Trafford.

English paper, the Manchester Evening News believe that PSG are ready to make an £80million offer to Madrid for Ronaldo, but United still believe they are in the driving seat, and are ready to offer a player plus cash deal.

Rumours circulating today that Wayne Rooney will look to leave Old Trafford in the summer have been refuted by the club, by if they cannot convince the England striker to stay, then he ma be used in a player plus cash offer.
