Manchester United are considering a blockbuster swap deal to get Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.
Widespread reports have suggested that the Portuguese star is unhappy with how the Merengues have treated him recently.
Rumours state that Real promised Cristiano a new deal, but talks have yet to begin, which has apparently angered the former United man.
Several reports in Spain and Italy have claimed that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is willing to offload him in the summer.
Catalan paper Sport has added to the speculation, suggesting that Ronaldo will be leaving the Bernabeu at the end of the season if Neymar or David De Gea are signed by the LaLiga champions.
The recent signing of Alexis Sanchez may prevent a possible obstacle to an Old Trafford return for the 32-year-old.

However, the report claims that the Red Devils could choose to send long-term Real target De Gea to the Bernabeu in a dry swap deal.
According to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, Real will try for a third time to sign De Gea this summer, with the operation already underway. They claim that the Spanish international is worth around £87m (€100m), while Ronaldo has reportedly asked Real for his asking price to be no more than €100m.
