'Let's make it a hattrick!!' – Fans urge Man United to smash transfer record

Today, Man Utd are linked with Cristiano Ronaldo...

Regardless of who the future Los Blancos coach will be, it appears that both player and club want the move to happen.

Manchester United has reportedly opted to prioritise their pursuit of Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale over attempting to bring team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club this summer.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford admits to favouring Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi over Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Argentine considered to be "the greatest ever".

While his form in the first half of the campaign was often disappointing, Ronaldo still finished last season with 44 goals to his name, including 15 in the UEFA Champions League as Real won it for the third year running. "Now is the time to enjoy this".

TeamTalk are citing a report from AS that claims Ronaldo has chose to leave Madrid after they refused to meet his salary demands following talks over yet another contract extension.

"I want Cristiano to stay, all players want it but one thing has nothing to do with the other. It is hard to be at a better place than Madrid, the best club in the world, but life is not just about glory".

Nasser Al Khelaifi, chairman of PSG, has always wanted to have Ronaldo on his team and now, faced with Portugal's declared intent to seek another destination, the wish of the leader and the state of Qatar could come true. The newspaper also alleged that the Real Madrid dressing room had turned on him after the antics in Kiev, which soured what should have been a fantastic evening.

The world-record signing, at almost £200m, had a high-profile spat with Edinson Cavani over penalty taking duties, and Unai Emery found it hard to manage the big characters in the dressing room.

Ronaldo's desire for a new contract was believed to be behind last year's stories and he has still not signed a new deal at Real, who he joined from United in a then world record transfer worth 85.5 million pounds ($113.77 million). "We are not favourites but in football nothing is impossible".
