If we really let Cristiano go to Juve for less than 100mil without fighting them for him, that's a huge mistake on our part. W'll end up spending that much anyways on a much lesser player, without the commerical appeal, and let's be hoenst, Ronaldo doesn't look like he's slowing down anytime soon. I'd be ok if we try and he chooses Juve, but if we don't even put in our best effort, that's unforgivable in my opinion.

They won't sell him for 100m euros to us or PSG.

Mistake? No we should stay well clear imo Ronaldo best player in the world but at 33 he's only going to decline so spending such an huge amount on him when we should be prioritising other areas is the mistake.

We need to forget the old Ronaldo and search for the next Ronaldo.

Based on Ed002's reply to my previous post I would personally find it hard to believe Ronaldo's agent didn't at least sound Utd out about a move, probably a while ago. Transfers clearly take considerable time to organise, even if a player who seemingly appeared unobtainable becomes available. I'd love Ronaldo back but feel his fee and wages could be better spent in other areas.

{Ed002's Note - It really doesn't work like that with Ronaldo's representative.}

There is no next Ronaldo, that's stupid. And he's in better shape than any 28 year old I've seen, and I have no doubt he can stay a top 5 player in the world into his mid/ late 30s. And is is that big of a sum? When mediocre players are being priced at 60-70mil? I think it's a steal.

Real are built to get the best out of Ronaldo, it's not a simple case of he slips in seamlessly anymore. Players like Benzema and Marcelo carry out a role so unlike normal strikers and left backs.

Plus, I can only imagine Real are entertaining selling him because they believe the decline is coming. He's had problems with his knees and Real's medical staff will know his body almost as well as him.

To be honest dave, we have been saying that for Ronaldo for the past 3 years but he has only improved.

Something tells me all of these posters will be mysteriously quiet when Ronaldo is leading Juve deep into the CL and we're still relying on Lingard to try and get a top-4 spot and past the group stages.

What's the point in paying 80/ 90 million for Ronaldo who would want to be a striker when we already have Lukaku there. We need a team not an individual. LB, CB, RW all far more important areas we need to strengthen.

I am torn on the Ronaldo debate.
He is obviously not young anymore and doesn’t dominate games like he used to when he was with us before.

He would bring huge marketing revenue and more importantly he would bring back the winning mentality.
He would go all Keane on those not pulling their weight. And we have a few of them, considering the performances at the World Cup compares to those in our red shirt.
