Cristiano Ronaldo agent’s stance on Manchester United transfer amid swap claims

Cristiano Ronaldo’s representatives do not think Manchester United are prioritising his signing this summer, according to reports.

Ronaldo is strongly linked with a return to United, with his future at Juventus up in the air. There has even been rumours regarding a potential swap deal involving Paul Pogba.

Ronaldo’s contract at Juventus expires at the end of next season and the Old Lady are said to want to cash in on the 36-year-old in this window.

Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites to sign the Portugal superstar.

However, a romantic return to United could also be on the agenda.

United are eyeing Borussia Dortmund and England star Jadon Sancho, so may not be able to sign both players.

Dortmund have reduced their asking price for Sancho, who is expected to be allowed to leave the Bundesliga club this summer.

Speaking on the Transfer Window podcast, Duncan Castles says there have been talks between United and Ronaldo’s agents.

However, they are yet to be convinced by how desperate the Red Devils are to get a deal done.

“In their discussions with Ronaldo’s representatives to date, the representatives don’t feel that he is being prioritised,” Castles said.
