Manchester United ‘clear to seal Cristiano Ronaldo transfer for just £65m’

Manchester United are in pole position to seal the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo for just £65million, according to reports.

Ronaldo is believed to be considering his future at Real Madrid and United have been linked with a giant summer move.

United have been thinking the Portuguese would cost about £70-£80million to buy, but reports now say Madrid would sell for as little as £65million.

That would be more than achievable for United, who are also looking to make other big name signings.

Ronaldo’s wages would be in excess of £270,000-a-week, but the reduced figure would make that easy to afford.
