Cristiano Ronaldo happens to be a Portuguese football sensation and is widely considered a modern-day GOAT of the sport. Although he is currently having a decent time at Juventus, he has failed to make a dominating impact.

Despite attaining domestic success with Juventus, the lack of European success has forced Ronaldo to reconsider moving back to either Real Madrid or Manchester United. Earlier reports have also suggested that United was considering having Ronaldo around, but for a cut-off pay.

Meanwhile, according to a new report by Tuttomercatoweb, Ronaldo has supposedly held talks with United but is unwilling to take a pay cut. The Portuguese currently earns £27 million per year in Turin.

Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea is the highest earner at Old Trafford, pocketing £375,000 per week. While United has previously paid bombs to the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Angel Di Maria, they failed to fire. In contrast, the continuing pandemic has somewhat hit the finances of The Red Devils.

The news also adds that Ronaldo could change his mind if Juventus fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season. Presently, Juventus is placed fourth in the Serie A table and is seemingly out of the title race, besides struggling against the likes of AC Milan and Lazio for a top-four finish. Nonetheless, Ronaldo continues to lead the race for the Serie A Golden Boot of the season for being the highest goal-scorer.
