Ronaldo one step closer to United return

Cristiano Ronaldo now has the same lawyers as Jose Mourinho, sparking rumours of a return to Old Trafford in the near future.

The Real Madrid star has appointed Jose Antonio Choclan on the advice of his agent Jorge Mendes, as he prepares to fight his battle against tax evasion.

Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo claim that the 32-year-old is keen to leave the club, while El Mundo hint at a return to his former club, United.

Rumours of a return have been ongoing for some time now and have only been strengthened by Ronaldo’s latest legal problems. If he loses his case it may well be the trigger for that transfer to happen.
