Red Devils scout Portuguese superstar this week.
Manchester United are still eyeing up a stunning move to re-sign Real Madrid playmaker Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
New Red Devils manager David Moyes sent his two assistant coaches at Old Trafford, Steve Round and Phil Neville, to Portugal on Wednesday night to watch the one-time United star in action playing for his country in a friendly international against the Netherlands in Faro.
And the coveted 28-year-old did not disappoint either as he scored a dramatic late equaliser to hand the home team a 1-1 draw.
However, despite the fact that the Premier League champions have reportedly left vacant the No 7 shirt at Old Trafford next season, the jersey that the Portuguese wore during his six-year stay in the north west, his employers in Spain are also insistent that Ronaldo will see out his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Ronaldo left England to move to los Blancos in the summer of 2009 for a word-record transfer fee of £80 million and in the intervening four-year period, the attacking midfield player has scored a sensational 201 goals in just 199 matches for the Spanish giants in all competitions, making a return to the Premier League this summer highly unlikely.
