Manchester United have reportedly told Cristiano Ronaldo that he would have to cut his current salary in half, if he wants a return to the club this summer, Gazzetta dello Sport reports.
The 35-year-old’s future in Italy has remained uncertain at Juventus, ever since their Champions League exit at the hands of Porto last month.
Juve’s nine-year league dominance in Serie A seems to end this year, as they sit 11 points behind leaders Inter Milan, with just six fixtures left.
United are reportedly keen to bring the Portugal captain who Juventus could sell for as little as £26million (€30m) – back to Old Trafford known and have spoken to his representative, Jorge Mendes last week.
Ronaldo is on an annual salary of £27m (€31m) and would be prepared to take half of that at Old Trafford.
