La Liga giants Real Madrid are said to be working on a plan to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 37-year-old has been a standout performer for Manchester United in their hot season, and the Mirror reports that Real Madrid want him to wear their colors for another term due to his influence off and on the pitch.
The Portuguese scored 23 goals with 17 goals coming in the Premier League after moving from Juventus to 12.85 million pounds last summer. This performance in England caused an uproar at the Bernabeu with prominent club figures wanting Ronaldo’s return knowing that he would achieve guaranteed goals in La Liga.

The player has a two-year contract with United with the option of an additional year but his future at Manchester is now uncertain due to the club’s poor performance and their constant change of coaches.
United are gearing up for their third manager in less than a calendar year as Ajax boss Eric ten Hag prepares to begin a massive rebuilding this summer following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November and his replacement by interim chief Ralf Rangnick.
