Manchester United to hijack Juventus's move for Cristiano Ronaldo?

Real Madrid transfer news: Cristiano Ronaldo lined up for Juventus move

Apparently, Real Madrid has accepted Juventus' offer too.

According to Spanish daily sports programme Jugones, Real Madrid have made a decision to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

"It was very nice to be at Real Madrid", he said on BeIn Sports after the 3-1 win. "In the next few days I'll give the fans, who have been by my side, an answer".

Throughout the transfer window Real Madrid has been linked with a move for Brazilian attacker Neymar, considered something of an "heir" to Ronaldo by the Spanish giant.

But former Juventus managing director Luciano Moggi believes the Serie A champions should not look to sign Ronaldo and focus on other areas of their squad.

A deal worth €30m-a-year for four seasons was tabled by Agnelli to Ronaldo - a clear €5m-a-year more than what Real have offered.

"It makes me laugh", he told Sportitalia (via Goal).

The rumour mill went into overdrive this week with reports of the possible transfer, with Sky Sport Italia reporting sources close to Juventus are now mulling the logistics of an offer for the 33-year-old.

The Spanish report claims that Ronaldo and Real have a deal which will see them allow him to leave for less than his outlandish release clause, reached in January, which puts an entirely new complexion on the situation as the Champions League holders begin to consider building a future in which their ageing star is not the foundation.

Meanwhile for Ronaldo, the Champions League was added to the Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup and Spanish Super Cup but Real faltered in domestic competitions.

Ronaldo, whose Portugal side were knocked out of the World Cup at the weekend, is in a moment of crisis and it seems that an exit from Madrid is the solution.
