Earlier this month reports in Italy claimed the COVID-19 outbreak could affect Juve’s ability to pay the star man his mammoth £510,000-a-week wages.

And an unnamed director of football at a top European club would not be surprised if the Red Devils moved for their former hero, according to prominent Spanish journalist Guillem Balague.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Balague said: “Interestingly I was told by a director of football of a top club in Europe: ‘How about if Manchester United decide to go for him?’

“And I said: ‘No, that cannot be possible, they actually are putting the money somewhere else, they are looking for a different type of player’.

“But he told me: ‘I wouldn’t be surprised’.

“However, I would pass on that one. I would be surprised.”

Juventus’ players – including Ronaldo – agreed to waive four months’ wages at the end of March but it still might not be enough for the Serie A champions.

The Old Lady would likely demand around £62.5million for 35-year-old Ronaldo, who was proving age is just a number with his pre-lockdown form.

Rumors have also surfaced linking Ronnie with a return to Real Madrid.

But Balague quickly put that suggestion to bed and said: “The simple answer is no.

“Real Madrid is not after Ronaldo, they are looking for a different type of profile.

“They want to invest their money, wages, into a different type of player. So no.

“Secondly, I think [the story] came off the back of the struggles at Juventus who asked the players to reduce their wages, which they did.

“And as a consequence – also of coronavirus – they realized they may actually have to get rid of some of the players.

“Of course the one they spend more money on is Ronaldo.

“So somebody close to Juventus left that little bomb out there if anybody wants Ronaldo he may be available.”

Will Cristiano Ronaldo set to announces retirement soon? -The answer is yet unknown because the 35-year-old is still much more inform as Juve fans expect more from him.
