Cristiano Ronaldo won’t return to Manchester United this summer

According to MARCA, his current club, Juventus, are awaiting his return from summer holiday after his European Championship exertions with Portugal.

Given that his contract with the Bianconeri runs out in 2022, it could be inferred that 12 months from now is the likeliest time when United, or any other interested parties, will be able to acquire their man, and on a free transfer to boot.
