CRISTIANO RONALDO is 'tempted' by a return to Manchester United, according to reports.
The Portuguese star became a legend at Old Trafford between 2003 and 2009, winning his first Ballon d'Or and Champions League gongs during his time in the North West.
Now 36, Ronaldo is entering the final years of his career.
And where better to spend them than back at Man United?
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, CR7 is growing unhappy at Juve, with a return to Old Trafford starting to cross his mind.
Ronaldo has failed to go beyond the quarter-finals of the Champions League since swapping Real Madrid for Juve in 2018.
And this season, under Andrea Pirlo, the Old Lady appear unlikely to even win Serie A – currently sat in fourth, 11 points behind Inter Milan.
In fact, Juve are only two points above fifth-placed Napoli, opening them up to the unthinkable possibility of not even qualifying for the Champions League.
Struggling financially due to Ronaldo's wages and the effect of the coronavirus pandemic, Juventus could benefit from offloading the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.
They could also face financial penalties from Uefa or Serie A after their role in the attempted European Super League breakaway.

Ronaldo has also been linked with a return to Real Madrid.
But Madrid president Florentino Perez has rubbished the rumours, telling El Larguero: "The rumours of Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Madrid are just rumours from his entourage.
"There is nothing."
This will be a boost to Man United, should they decide to actively pursue a reunion with Ronaldo.
Come the summer, their former No7 will have one year remaining on his Juventus contract.
