Real Madrid line up transfer for Cristiano Ronaldo with club convinced Ralf Rangnick move could force him out of Man Utd

REAL MADRID are looking to bring Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo back to the Bernabeu, according to reports. 

Ronaldo scored 450 goals in 438 games for Real during his nine-year spell at the club.


And according to FootballInsider, Real could look to bring the 36-year-old back to Madrid just three years after he left for Juventus.

The report states that Ralf Rangnick's arrival at United has potentially opened the door to a winter return to Spain.

There are concerns over whether Ronaldo will suit Rangnick's high-energy pressing game.

But Ronaldo and United's running stats in Rangnick's first game in charge say otherwise.

The Red Devils comfortably saw of Crystal Palace 1-0 at Old Trafford with midfielder Fred capping off the dominant performance with a sweet strike from the edge of the penalty area.

Rangnick's set-up saw Ronaldo be paired with Marcus Rashford, and the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's performance showed he is up for the fight and willing to press.

After the game, Rangnick singled Ronaldo out for praise saying: "We wanted to play with two strikers, especially in the central position.

"By the way, Cristiano Ronaldo's work off the ball, chapeau."

And club legend Rio Ferdinand believes Rangnick will look to modify his tactics, if need be, to work around Superstar Ronaldo.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: “He’ll be adapting his tactics to suit a superstar like Cristiano Ronaldo. 

“Don’t forget that at Schalke he had another superstar in Raul, who was another ageing superstar, and he adapted things to make sure he could accommodate a player of that calibre and class.”
