Manchester United should mastermind a sensational return this summer to cope with the potential loss of striker Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan striker has reportedly made his intentions of leaving Old Trafford this summer clear.
However, in his place could arrive former forward Cristiano Ronaldo with reports from Gazzetta dello Sport suggesting that he is not fully content with current employers Juventus and could prefer a move back to either Spain or England.
Should that be the case, the Red Devils need to be primed to re-sign the Portuguese sensation should Cavani depart.
It goes without saying that the 36-year-old is one of the best players in world football.
Throughout his club career, he has netted 670 goals in 888 appearances and his standards do not appear to be dropping any time soon.
Despite Juve having a supremely inconsistent season, Ronaldo has still managed to get on the scoresheet on 32 occasions, a figure that simply cannot be bettered by any player at Old Trafford this season.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has certainly drawn plenty of praise throughout his career for the monumental feats he has achieved.
Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, who managed the Portuguese in his three years whilst at Real Madrid, hailed him as “incredible”.
Whilst a move back to Old Trafford has been mooted on a number of occasions in the past and never come to fruition, it actually makes more sense now more than ever with the Red Devils keen to once again challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title.
Ronaldo, rated at £45m, would certainly go some way to achieving that should he arrive at Old Trafford and replace the potentially outgoing Cavani.
After all, he has never made his admiration for the club a secret, on numerous occasions expressing his “love” for the Red Devils so could well be tempted by a switch.
United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must then seal his sensational return this summer.
