Ronaldo beg super-agent for Manchester United return

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly told his agent to seal a dream return to Manchester United this summer.

United will offer Spain goalkeeper David de Gea, 26, and £183m in exchange for Portugal forward Ronaldo, 32, and his Real Madrid team-mate Alvaro Morata, the 24-year-old Spain striker.

Alternatively, United will offer De Gea and £175m for Ronaldo and will pursue Morata in a separate deal.

If De Gea goes to Madrid, then United could move for AC Milan’s Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, 18, as a replacement.

United, along with Chelsea, PSG and Bayern Munich are all keen on the prolific Portugal star, with the French outfit ready to to offer £122m to land him plus a staggering salary of £26m per year.

Ronaldo, however, favours a return to return to United and has instructed his representative, fellow Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes, to do everything in his power to make it reality after ignoring pleas from Real boss Zinedine Zidane to reconsider his position.
The Chinese transfer window opens on Monday and the biggest prize is Cristiano Ronaldo.

Milan confirm that goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will leave

Gianluigi Donnarumma has put Europe’s top clubs on high alert after choosing against renewing his AC Milan contract.
The 18-year-old has made over 70 appearances for the Rossoneri since making a surprise breakthrough in October 2015 and many fine performances have attracted attention from high places.

Serie A champions Juventus, LaLiga winners Real Madrid and Premier League club Manchester United are all reportedly interested in the young stopper and he appears to be on his way out of San Siro following an announcement by Milan on Thursday afternoon.
In a statement, the club CEO Marco Fassone said: “Raiola informed us that Donnarumma has made a definitive decision not to renew the contract with Milan.

“We had made a strong proposal. The player evaluated it and made some evaluations that were not just economic, but he told us that he does not wish to renew the contract and his time with Milan will therefore conclude by June 30, 2018.

“We were taken by surprise, as we had hoped Donnarumma would be the goalkeeper taking Milan into the future. Naturally, the decision leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, but now we have to go forward.”
Donnarumma became the second-youngest goalkeeper ever to debut in Serie A in 2015, aged 16 years and 242 days.

He also broke the record as the youngest Italy under-21 player ever to play, aged 17 years and 28 days in March 2016. Six months later, he made his senior international debut, becoming the youngest goalkeeper ever to appear for Italy, aged 17 years and 189 days.
