Premier League side Manchester United have reportedly held talks with Cristiano Ronaldo's entourage with regards to a possible return to Old Trafford this summer in the transfer window.

Ronaldo's future is under intense speculation after Juventus endured a disappointing campaign last season, failing to win the Serie A title and crashing out in the round of 16 of the Champions League at the hands of FC Porto.

The Portuguese hitman was still scoring goals for fun, netting a total of 36 times in all competitions, ending the top scorer in Serie A last season.

Now, according to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes is set to jet to Italy to hold talks over his client's future with intensifying interest from Manchester United.

The report adds that Mendes is set to arrive in Milan for his second trip to Italy in quick succession, with the agent expected to make contact with the Juventus management.

It has been reported that there are several offers on the table for Ronaldo, with United said to be willing to offer the Portuguese superstar a deal worth €20m (£17m) per season.

However, their major focus is still on ensuring they sign Jadon Sancho this summer, with interest in Ronaldo categorised as 'less enthusiastic.'

Ronaldo was asked about speculation with regards to his future recently and he replied, "It doesn't really bother me. I have been playing at the highest level for 18 years. If I was 18 or 19, I don’t think I would sleep thinking about the future. Now, I’m 36. If I’m staying? It doesn’t matter now. What happens will be for the best. Now I’m focused on the European Championship, I want to win and I want to have positive thoughts from the first to the last game."

Ronaldo will be seen in action when Portugal take on a mammoth Group F clash against France at the Euro 2020 tonight.
