According to the UK Independent, Sporting Lisbon has stated that they are open to signing Cristiano Ronaldo, but only on a free transfer.
Prior to joining United in 2003, Ronaldo spent his formative years at the Portuguese club.
Before she passed away, his mother Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro reportedly told him: “Son, before I die, I want to see you return to Sporting.” She had always wished to see the five-time Ballon d’Or winner playing at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.
And now, with Sporting eager to re-sign Ronaldo, who is anxious to play Champions League games, that dream may come true.
They may have gotten in touch with United and offered to take him off their hands in exchange for United terminating his lucrative contract, which would mean they wouldn’t get paid.
The Red Devils are considering selling Ronaldo after initially ruling one out during preseason due to his actions during the first few weeks of the new season.
