Real Madrid has offered Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United to get a deal for David De Gea over the line
Ronaldo’s declining abilities have contributed to Real Madrid’s goalscoring woes this season. Despite scoring a brace in each of his last two league games, rumours of his departure refuse to die down. He even reiterated that he was happy to live in Madrid but the news of him being unsettled continue to get funnelled out in the media.
Spanish newspaper El Confidencial has reported that Real Madrid is trying to make the best use of this situation. Ths Spanish Champions have offered Manchester United a swap deal involving Ronaldo and David De Gea.

Super agent Jorge Mendes is reported to be the mastermind behind the deal. Mendes represents both Ronaldo and the Spanish shot-stopper. He believes that this supposed transfer would help both of his clients.
Real Madrid’s search for a new No.1 has seen them linked with a whole host of ‘keepers. Keylor Navas has been unconvincing and prone to unforced errors. Apart from De Gea, Seria A duo Alisson and Gianluigi Donnarumma along with Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois were speculated to be on Real’s radar. However, De Gea still remains at the top of the club hierarchy’s wishlist.
Real Madrid was close to bringing in the Spanish No.1 in 2015 and the deal was minutes away from being completed. However, a delay in paperwork submission saw them miss out on De Gea.
Meanwhile, United are reluctant to part ways with their three-time player of the season. Jose Mourinho values his player much more than Cristiano and wants to keep him at Old Trafford at all costs.
Another bewildering rumour linking Ronaldo with the exit door. He has shown signs of a return to form and I still believe that he will come good in the second half of the season. He has a big part to play in Real’s season. Admittedly his days are numbered at the Bernabeu but he still should not be discarded like any other player.
