According to media reports Ronaldo is unsettled at Madrid because he believes Real did not back him as fully as he had hoped in his dispute with the taxman.

However, Express Sport understands the 32-year-old may not be granted a dream return to Old Trafford.

He told Spanish radio station Onda Cero: 'Neymar passed a medical with Madrid.

Barcelona star Neymar had a medical at Real Madrid and nearly joined the Catalans' great rivals, according to Bernabeu club president Florentino Perez.

Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes says there is a €1bn buy-out clause in his contract.

Regional prosecutors have accused the Portugal captain of four crimes against Spain's exchequer, committed between 2011 and 2014 and which involve a tax fraud of 14,768,897 euros ($16,467,518), reports Efe.

"I've not spoken with Nasser (Al-Khelaifi, PSG president) or with anybody", Perez said.

Perez said: "We have built a legendary team with the best players from Spain and the world, but also with many players from our youth academy".

Free-spending Paris St Germain have also been linked with a player that Perez insists there have been no bids for, nor he says has there been any offers for Alvaro Morata or James Rodriguez.

The 70-year-old construction magnate's third term in charge of Europe's most successful club spanning 15 years - 2000 to 2006 and since 2009 - was rubber-stamped at a ceremony at the Santiago-Bernabeu Stadium on Monday night.

"We're used to being the subject of intense transfer speculation during transfer windows", Rummenigge said in a statement.

"Ronaldo recalls being protected by Manchester United as a club, Sir Alex Ferguson as a manager, in a way that he's still at a loss, that he still laments".

"As a rule, we do not comment on these rumours".

He is their all-time top scorer with 404 goals in 394 games and has won three Champions Leagues, two La Liga titles and two King's Cups with the European Champions.
