Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are reportedly keen on Cristiano Ronaldo whom they rejected in the summer and they have a glimmer of hope as he has not signed a new contract with United yet.

The club aims to tie down Ronaldo on a long-term deal which would be certainly lucrative. The player’s agent revealed they had received the offer but no decision has been made yet.

‘United have presented an offer but we are still studying the details,’ Sergio Alves, assistant to Ronaldo’s representative Jorge Mendes, told Onda Cero.

‘Today, Manchester United do not want to speak about any sale. The position of the English club is very clear – but we do not know what can happen later.

‘Many things change in football and the end of the season will be the key.’

What does that mean, dear Mr. Alves? Ronaldo will not sign this contract if we don’t win the title or the Champions League or both? Or we have to wait to see what will Ronaldo’s mood be by the end of the season and he will decide on the basis of those moods? Or what?
