Man United are keen to step up their push to re-sign Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo as speculation grows as to the Portuguese star’s future at the Bernabeu.

It is believed that the 29 year old is unhappy at Spanish giants and is apparently open to a return to the Premier League and a move back to Old Trafford appears the most likely to tempt Ronaldo.

Louis van Gaal is keen to welcome in Ronaldo and the club’s owners believe such a capture would be the type of statement of intent that would help the club recover from a disastrous campaign under David Moyes and one that incoming kit suppliers Adidas will be enlisted to help make a reality.

Man United have recently signed a ten year deal with the sportswear behemoths worth £750m and the chance to partner a new kit launch with a ‘Marquee’ signing is one that appeals to Adidas.

Though clearly Ronaldo currently represents a club tied to Adidas but their fear may be that the two time Balon d’Or winner could end up at moving to a side they do not cover and clearly they see the financial benefit of aiding Man United’s push to bring in last season’s La Liga and Champions League top-scorer.

Man United are ready to offer £60m as well as the services of Mexican international Javier Hernandez, who is currently on loan at Real Madrid, with Ed Woodward instructed to push on with moves to bring Ronaldo back with a move more likely next summer than in the January transfer window.

Though Ronaldo has been phenomenal since his move to the Spanish capital in the summer of 2009, netting 256 goals in 251 appearances, Real Madrid have endured a largely unsuccessful spell.

In five completed seasons since a then club record £80m move to Real Madrid the Bernabeu side have won just one La Liga title and despite last term’s historic Champions League success Ronaldo appears ready for a new challenge.

The chance to return to a Man United side with respected manager Louis van Gaal in place, and seemingly endless sums to invest in squad building, and one imagines the possibility of such a move would increase significantly if Louis van Gaal secures a Champions League return for next term.
