It is the transfer rumour that refuses to fade and now there is a set to be fresh round of speculation over Cristiano Ronaldo's possible return to Manchester United.

Widespread reports are suggesting that Real Madrid will look to cash in on their 31-year-old icon at the end of this season, with a €60m asking price meaning any buying club would be unlikely to receive any sell-on profit.

Yet Ronaldo's status as one of the greatest players of his generation would ensure that his signing would offer the potential of huge commercial revenue and there will be no shortage of clubs eager to sign the Portuguese star.

Ronaldo's affinity for United and previous suggestions that he might return to play for the club where he made his name as a world star will fuel the belief that Old Trafford chiefs would be prepared to pay the lavish asking price.

Paris Saint-Germain are also being strongly linked with a move for Ronaldo, who has given hints that he is keen to seal one final mega-money move in his goal laden career.

Ronaldo has scored an astonishing 254 goals in 231 games since his arrival at Real Madrid in 2009, but it seems increasingly likely that his time at the capital city club will conclude next month.

Where next for one of the true icons of the modern game? We will not have long to wait for that answer now.
