Cristiano Ronaldo spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson this morning ahead of his proposed return to Manchester United.
Ronaldo has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City, with the deal thought to be close to being completed as of Thursday evening.
However, come Friday morning, Man City now appear to be OUT the race and Man United are firm favourites to get a deal for Ronaldo over the line.
Things appear to have developed pretty quickly, with even Sir Alex Ferguson reaching out to Ronaldo on the phone in an attempt to convince him to move to Old Trafford.

Fergie was the man who brought Ronaldo to Old Trafford in the first place. If there’s anyone he’s going to listen to ahead of a proposed Premier League return, it’s him.
Man United appear to have used Fergie as the face of their pursuit of Ronaldo, reminding him of his affection for the Red Devils and convincing him to snub rivals City.
It’s genius – and even at his grand old age – Sir Alex Ferguson is still having the last laugh over City.
