Manchester United have entered the race alongside Manchester City to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus after Massimiliano Allegri confirmed that the Portugal forward wants to leave Italy. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted today that he would welcome Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United amid stories that the club has joined neighbours Manchester City in the race to sign him.

Speaking at today’s press conference ahead of Sunday’s Premier League tie against Wolves at Molyneux, the United boss said Ronaldo is ‘the greatest player of all time’.

It is understood that United have now held talks with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, with a view to re-signing the player that joined from Sporting Lisbon as a teenager and spent six seasons at Old Trafford before moving to Real Madrid for a world record £80m in 2009. City have yet to table a formal bid for the 36-year-old and Solskjær hinted that his side may now attempt to trump their neighbours by signing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Manchester City are no longer in talks to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, with a Man Utd return now possible; Pep Guardiola said Cristiano Ronaldo will decide where he wants to play just moments before Manchester City pulled out of a deal to sign the forward and a return to Manchester United emerged as a possibility.

He also said that City “did everything” to try and sign Harry Kane, but “big master of negotiation” Daniel Levy made a deal difficult.
