Manchester United have accepted an £80million bid for Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid and he will now travel to Spain for transfer talks.
Ronaldo has long been a target for the Spanish giants, whose president
Florentino Perez vowed earlier this week to do “everything possible” to take the 24-year-old to the Bernabeu.
A statement on from Manchester United on Thursday morning read: “Manchester United have received a world-record, unconditional offer of £80million for Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.’
“At Cristiano’s request – who has again expressed his desire to leave – and after discussion with the player’s representatives, United have agreed to give Real Madrid permission to talk to the player.
“Matters are expected to be concluded by 30 June. The club will not comment until further notice.”
