Marca claims that the legendary former United manager is keen for the deal to go ahead, and will use his close relationship with Ronaldo to ensure a deal is done.

The pair allegedly met in early November to discuss a potential return to Old Trafford, and it’s also claimed that Ferguson is working with the Glazers in an advisory capacity, with a big focus on buying back Ronaldo.

Judging by reports from the last few days, it appears to be a straight shootout between United and Paris Saint-Germain for the Balon D'Or winner's signature.

There is of course the option of Ronaldo staying at Madrid, and Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes said of the Portuguese leaving the Bernabeu: "It is impossible. He will end his career at Real Madrid."

But the rumour mill has decided to ignore that little soundbite for now; after all what do agents know eh?

The mill prefers to focus on Louis van Gaal saying: “We are looking at all players, not just Ronaldo. But these players are mostly ungettable. With Ronaldo, let’s wait and hope.”

One thing is for sure, you will be hearing a lot more about this one between now and the end of the January transfer window.
