If we could tell our younger selves one thing, it would be to watch every single moment of Cristiano Ronaldo with the Premier League badges on his shirt sleeves. 

Before he departed to Real Madrid in Summer 2009 – in what was a world-record deal – the Portuguese dynamo bullied his way through defenders, rabona’d his way through crosses, netted loads of goals and cleaned up Player of the Year awards.

Since then, he’s not done too bad either.

However, we could see a saving grace – according to ESPN, the Juventus forward has contacted several of his old clubs and Europe’s elite to see if there is any interest in giving him a Turin exit.

He’s still got one year left on his current deal, but the report details that that hasn’t stopped the £500k-a-week+ man trying to gauge interest elsewhere, following a supremely disappointing season with the Italian side that saw them finish fourth in Serie A – although they did win the Coppa Italia.

Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Manchester United are reportedly among the clubs contacted in an effort to discover whether he could fit into their plans for the summer transfer window.

Cristiano Ronaldo has the European Championships still to come with his country Portugal, which could go on until mid-July

The 36-year-old’s extremely high wage demands do make a move unlikely to even the richest of the world’s clubs.

The report also states that Ronaldo has already spoken to new manager Massimiliano Allegri, who replaced Andrea Pirlo, with more talks planned before the commencement of pre-season – while there is also the concern of the European Championships to overcome first, which could go on until mid-July if Portugal aim to go all the way for a second consecutive time.

Ronaldo scored 36 goals in 44 games for Juventus this season, proving that he’s still very much got it at the very highest level – perhaps sparking interest in the Red Devils overlords.

He scored 84 goals in 194 appearances for United in the Premier League but since his goalscoring output has increased even further, and it’s highly likely he could return an even better ratio if he were to don the red jersey again.

Can you see the Portuguese lining up for his old club again – or is this just another pipe dream in the minds of enamoured United supporters?
