Manchester United shirt numbers Cristiano Ronaldo may wear with transfer looking likelier

Manchester United have long been linked with Cristiano Ronaldo. But, this summer, the stars appear to be aligning.

The Juventus star is ready to leave Serie A behind for a different challenge, with a move to Old Trafford ‘tempting him’ at the current moment in time.

Manchester United saw Ronaldo take the Premier League by storm during his six years at the club, helping them win three league titles as well as the Champions League in 2008.

The Portugal international was sold to Real Madrid in 2009 and, every year since, has been tipped to return.

But an emotional homecoming for Ronaldo could be on the cards this summer.

The Glazers have reportedly talked with Jorge Mendes about the 36-year-old, who was Juventus’ top goalscorer as they scraped their way into the Champions League this term.

Ronaldo is said to be ‘tempted’ by the prospect of an emotional second coming, 11 years after he quit.

And, what’s more, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still in touch with his former team-mate.

So Express Sport will now take a look at four squad numbers he could wear if he’s to make the blockbuster switch.
