Bruno Fernandes has held talks with Portugal team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed.
Manchester City had reportedly agreed terms with Ronaldo, but they have now pulled out of a move.
Instead, the Red Devils are attempting to re-sign the United legend.
Juventus have been told the 36-year-old wants to quit the club in Italy.
Manager Massimiliano Allegri confirmed Ronaldo would not play in Serie A this weekend, and Ronaldo has since boarded a jet from Turin to Lisbon on Friday.
Speaking at the same time, Solskjaer did not close the door to United making a late move in the transfer window to lure Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.
And star man Fernandes could be planning a crucial role in tempting the iconic No.7 back.
Solskjaer said: "I didn't think Ronaldo was going to leave Juventus, speculation the last few days.
"We have always had good communication, Bruno has been talking to him. He knows how we feel about him, if he was ever going to move he knows we are here."
The United manager added: "Any manager is always looking for a little bit more.
"I am happy with the numbers we have quality, it is really good. The staff with them fit each other really well.
"I don't want to speculate too much – he is a legend of this club, the greatest player of all time if you as me.
"I was fortunate enough to play with him, to coach him… such a tremendous human being as well.
"Let's see, everyone who has played with him has a soft spot for him.
"He is probably the greatest of all time."
