Manchester United insiders are cooling talk from Portugal of a move for Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to the Manchester Evening News, United sources are laughing off the suggestion any deal was currently being discussed.
Ronaldo’s future at Juventus has been questioned amid reports the Italian club will look to slash their hefty wage bill at the end of the season to help ease the financial losses from the coronavirus pandemic.
As their highest earner it makes sense why Ronaldo would be the one linked with an exit, although he is currently contracted to the club until the summer of 2022.
His current contract situation at Juventus means United would not only have to match his high wage demands themselves but also pay a transfer fee to secure his exit.
