A Juventus exit for Portuguese megastar, Cristiano Ronaldo, is looking more and more likely, however, Manchester United face competition for his signature from PSG.
Ronaldo left the Red Devils in 2009 – after a six-year spell in Manchester – when Real Madrid made him the most expensive player in the world.
He has since claimed victories in La Liga and the Champions League, before a move to Juventus yielded more silverware.
However, Ronaldo's days in Turin look numbered and a move is becoming 'increasingly likely', according to Italian-outlet Corriere Dello Sport, and United and PSG are monitoring the superstar's situation.
The report continues that whilst PSG are interested, due to the uncertainty of Kylian Mbappe's future, Ronaldo only has eyes for Manchester.
However, there's a sizeable obstacle preventing the deal; Ronaldo would be forced to take a pay-cut should he return to his former side.
And there's the sizeable price tag Juventus could command for the services of their star-man.
Paul Pogba could be used as a makeweight, and it's been long since rumoured that the Frenchman could be leaving Old Trafford, and after a spell in Turin earlier in his career, Juventus is a likely destination.
United face a problem, however, should they sign Ronaldo with their two main striking options – Ronaldo and Cavani – being 36 and 37 respectively.
Mason Greenwood still has youth on his side, but he may find game time limited to his more experienced teammates.
