Manchester United Transfer News: Alex Ferguson To Swap Nani, David de Gea For Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo?

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 01/01/13 05:59AM EST

If reports are to be believed, Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is keen on returning to his former club Manchester United.

According to a report in the Sun, the Portuguese international could return to Manchester United for a fee of £60 million.

The deal may even see United winger Nani and goalkeeper David de Gea move to Madrid.

According to the report, United would be able to offer Ronaldo in the region of £300,000 a week.

Ronaldo has also attracted interest from French Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain, who may be willing to shed close to £500,000 a week on the winger.

Even though the January transfer window would be too early for the transfer, pundits and United fans are keeping their fingers crossed for 27-year-old winger.
 
It has been learnt that Ronaldo is stalling his new contract at Bernabéu. Ronaldo's current contract expires in June 2015.
 
According to a report in the Metro, Real have offered Ronaldo a 50 percent wage hike if he stays on at the club until 2018. However, Ronaldo hasn't agreed to it.
 
Ronaldo moved to Spanish La Liga giants in 2009 for a world record fee of £80 million.

It has been reported that Ronaldo is frustrated with the fact that his rival for the Ballon D'Or award, Lionel Messi, pocketed £100 million with a new deal six-year with Barcelona.
 
Ronaldo, who will play against his former club during the Champions League in February, has said that he won't celebrate on scoring at Old Trafford.
  
"I won't celebrate if I score against United," Ronaldo told the Spanish newspaper AS in December. "I still speak with Ferguson. I miss him a lot, and I miss Manchester United. I felt very good there, it was like a family.
   
"I had six great years there and am still friends with my team-mates. It is thanks to Manchester United that I am here playing for Real Madrid. Without them, I wouldn't be the player I am today."

United boss Alex Ferguson said: "It will be fantastic to have him back," and joked: "It is in his contract he can't play against us. It would be a disgrace if he played."
