Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly rejected the opportunity to sign Cristiano Ronaldo for the Old Trafford club.
Soccerladuma reports that the Portuguese is understood to be upset with Real Madrid because club president Florentino Perez has been slow to offer him a new, improved deal
As a consequence, Ronaldo is said to be keen on leaving Los Blancos at the end of the season, and is reportedly interested in returning to United.
BeIN SPORTS journalist Palmeri Tancredi has claimed that Jose Mourinho met with Jorge Mendes, who is his agent and also represents Ronaldo, to discuss a potential move.
However, Tancredi insisted that Mourinho rejected the chance to take the Portuguese back to Old Trafford.
Ronaldo has struggled at Real this season, having scored only six LaLiga goals in 15 appearances so far, but is understood to be keen to sign a new bumper deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 32-year-old has fallen behind Lionel Messi and Neymar in the salary stakes, and believes he deserves to be in the same salary bracket as them.
