Chelsea are now ready to rival Manchester United for the signature of Ronaldo, who has said he wants out of Real Madrid and Spain after authorities accused him of tax fraud.

Cristiano Ronaldo has told his agent to secure a move back to Old Trafford as Manchester United prepare a stunning £175m deal to re-sign the Real Madrid attacker this summer, according to reports today.

Real Madrid will do everything they can to keep Ronaldo, but if he is allowed to leave, United are one of the very few clubs he would want to join.

And last night there were reports that he is interested in the possibility of a sensational return to the Theatre of Dreams - and a reunion with former Bernabeu gaffer Jose Mourinho.

Reports linking Champions League victor Cristiano Ronaldo with a possible move to Bayern Munich if the Portuguese made a decision to leave Real Madrid were a hoax, the German champions said on Monday.

The newspaper says the Portuguese worldwide has instructed his agent, Jorge Mendes, to do all he can to secure a move back to Old Trafford as he believes he still has unfinished business at United. There is nothing Real Madrid have to do now. This could be stunt in order for Ronaldo to get a pay bump from Real; we've seen numerous players do that before, including United captain Wayne Rooney.

"No one has sent us an offer for either Cristiano or anyone else", Perez told Onda Cero radio station. But I have no doubts about Cristiano.

"The whole thing is very odd because Cristiano Ronaldo is a great guy, both as a player and a person".

With Ronaldo they remain cautious in the knowledge that the story could quickly end if Real appease the 32-year-old.

Ronaldo maintains his innocence in the tax evasion case and insisted that did everything in accordance with Spanish law.

The 31-year-old, who is currently on worldwide duty with Portugal for the Confederations Cup, has been left angered at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities and now wishes to leave the country. PSG could make a bid, but it seems like Ronaldo has his heart set on Manchester United.
