Man Utd fans have Glazer theory over Cristiano Ronaldo ‘contact’ and £26m return

Manchester United have been in touch with Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, according to reports in Italy – but not all fans are pleased.

Some believe is part of a wider PR strategy by the Glazers to get supporters back on side following the European Super League debacle.

United were one of 12 clubs to sign up for the breakaway competition before quickly changing their mind after a series of fan-led protests.

With the Glazer family under-fire and seeking to rebuild their credibility, rumours of Ronaldo’s return have come at an opportune time.

Gazzetto dello Sport are reporting the Portuguese is unsettled at Juventus and is tired of playing for a side who can’t match his ambitions.

The same outlet has claimed United would be interested in bringing Ronaldo back to Old Trafford for a fee of around £26million.

Ordinarily, such news would be welcomed with open arms by United fans, but in the wake of recent events, some are taking a more cynical view.

One Twitter user labelled the rumour as “PR Heritage” and used the hashtag “#GlazersOut.”

“This is a PR spin from the Glazers. We won't agree to getting tricked #GlazersOut”, was the view of another.

A third added: “A brief from the glazer's to get fans back inside”, while a fourth declared: “Just PR from the glazers to try get us to stop the #GlazersOut stuff, which won't work.”

Ronaldo left Old Trafford for Real Madrid in 2009 after scoring 118 goals in 292 matches, helping the club to three Premier League titles and one Champions League.

After excelling at the Bernabeu, the 36-year-old joined Juve three years ago with the aim of helping the Old Lady win their first Champions League since 1996.

Things haven’t work out quite worked out how either party had planned, with Juve exiting the competition before the semi-final stage four times since Ronaldo’s arrival.
