Cristiano Ronaldo tells Jorge Mendes to get him to Manchester United

That has prompted speculation linking him with Paris St Germain and Manchester United amongst others, but Silva, who completed a big-money switch to AC Milan from Porto earlier this month, insists the four-time Champions League victor remains focused on his country's upcoming matches.

United would not want to pay that for the 32-year-old but keeper David De Gea, 26, could be used as a bargaining tool.

"I am sure he will stay in Europe".

Ronaldo has been accused of defrauding the Spanish tax office of nearly £13m over four counts of tax fraud relating to image rights, however, and despite being backed by Real Madrid, the attacker is said to want out of the Bernabeu this summer. "It took me a long time and a big effort to sign him when Man United didn't want to let him go".

Manchester United are putting together a stunning financial package for Cristiano Ronaldo - with the Portuguese superstar eager to return to the club.

Boss Jose Mourinho will have the final say, of course, and he and Ronaldo fell out towards the end of the Special One's final season in charge at Real.

Is Ronaldo annoyed he doesn't have the support of Real Madrid in this situation? "Maybe it is something he said in a moment when he's really angry". Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly very keen on the Brazilian and sees him as a key part of his summer transfer strategy.

"He likes Manchester United - that is something we all know". He's very fit, in good shape and playing very well.

Together with Barcelona's Lionel Messi, the presence of Ronaldo at Madrid has helped LaLiga cement its status as one of the most attractive competitions in world football, leaving Tebas concerned at the prospect of the Portugal global quitting Zinedine Zidane's side. "He has three or four more years to be a top, top player and he would like to keep winning titles, anywhere he goes".
