Manchester United reportedly failed in an attempt to re-sign legend Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, according to El Mundo (via Marca).

The Premier League side, who disappointingly lost 3-1 at the London Stadium to West Ham United on Saturday, were linked with a mega money move to bring the Real Madrid forward back to Old Trafford, but he ultimately completed a reported £99m move to Juventus.

The 33-year-old, who has a remarkable 154 international caps for his country, has scored three goals and provided five assists in eight appearances in all competitions for the Serie A champions so far this season.

Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, who netted 118 times in 292 games overall for United between 2003 and 2009 following his transfer from Sporting Lisbon, made the decision to leave the Bernabeu back in July, after winning two La Liga titles and four UEFA Champions League crowns, plus many more honours in Madrid.

The report claims former club United, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan all tried to land Ronaldo before his move to Turin this summer, though The Red Devils made the ‘first formal call’ to Madrid, but their offer was too low, with the Spanish giants demanding at least €100m (£89m) for his services.
