Spanish giants Real Madrid have made a bid for on-fire Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo, a Spanish newspaper reported on Thursday.
Real, without silverware for four years, have bid 40 million euros for the 21-year-old Portugual international in an effort to sign him in the January transfer window, the Madrid-based ABC daily said.
But the English Premiership leaders have no intention of letting go of the in-form Ronaldo, who scored three consecutive doubles for his club over the holiday period, and have slapped a price tag of 70 million euros on him, ABC said.
It was not possible to confirm the report at Real Madrid.
