With Manchester United now comfortably second in the Premier League, there’s almost a guarantee of Champions League football next season.

Following their 3-1 win over Tottenham at the weekend, only an incredibly untimely collapse would see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men fall out of the top four, meaning extra money should be made available for transfers.

According to Calciomercato, that could lead to a very surprising move for Cristiano Ronaldo, who ‘did not exclude returning one day’.

It’s said the return to the Champions League allows Manchester United ‘to study an important coup’, which could lead to an ‘interesting’ chat with Juventus about a certain Paul Pogba.

Their basis for that is Mino Raiola’s previous comments about how his client’s time at Old Trafford was all but finished, leaving speculation rife regarding the midfielder’s future at the club.

Honestly, if you ask us, this all seems a bit ridiculous, as bringing back Ronaldo would make little sense when looking at how Manchester United have been moving in the transfer market of late.

However, if Edinson Cavani were to leave after just one year, there would be an opening for an ageing striker who still has something to prove after a difficult season by their standards…

No, that would be foolish.

Or would it?
