Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is interested in returning to Manchester United, according to Sky Sports News.
A big reason why Ronaldo may want to leave Real Madrid is because of accusations of tax fraud against the 32-year-old.
According to Marca, Ronaldo is dealing with a lawsuit filed by Spain’s prosecutor office alleging that the star defrauded Spanish tax authorities of 14.7 million euros between 2011 and 2014.
He spent the first six years of his career with Manchester United before joining Real Madrid for the 2009-10 season.
He has won three UEFA Champions League titles with Real Madrid, all three of them coming within the last four years.
Real Madrid defeated Juventus, 4-1, back on June 3 to claim its third championship during Ronaldo’s tenure.
Jose Mourinho, Ronaldo’s former Real Madrid coach from 2010 through 2013 and a fellow Portuguese man, is the coach at Manchester United, giving Ronaldo more incentive to join the team.
Also, Manchester United, which is the richest sports franchise in the world, has the assets and the money to make a move for the megastar.
The transfer window is open until the end of August, so there is still plenty of time for both sides to decide whether or not they want to make the move.
He scored 25 goals last season, his lowest mark since his final season with Manchester United in 2008-09.
His best individual year came during the 2014-15 campaign, where he put 48 shots in the back of the net.
Manchester United recorded just 69 points during the 2016-17 season and finished in sixth place in the English Premier League.
