With United keen and interest likely to come from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and clubs from the Chinese Super League, they face a tough task to persuade the Portugal global to move to Stamford Bridge.

Ronaldo played under fellow compatriot Jose Mourinho at Santiago Bernabeu and Manchester United could still afford his services.

Ronaldo is said to want to leave Real because of accusations he has committed tax fraud, which the Portuguese star strongly denies.

The rumours of a possible transfer back to England by the two-time Ballon d'Or victor started after a report surfaced that Spanish authorities have accused the 32-year-old of avoiding £14.7m in taxes.

The former Manchester United winger is angry about the way he has been treated by Spanish tax authorities and has told Real he wants a move away from the club.

The Portugal global shocked the world of football after declaring that he wants to leave Spain amid reports that he defrauded the Spanish taxman for £13million.

According to Italian football expert, Gianluca Di Marzio, Ronaldo has told his agent, Jorge Mendes, to do "everything he can" to make the move a reality.

He has also won two La Liga titles with the club he joined from Manchester United for a then world record fee of 96 million euros ($A140.9 million) in 2009.

"I had the same situation with Manchester United when he wanted to leave and I signed him".

"The club has been very important in his career".

Marca also reported that club captain Sergio Ramos had called Ronaldo to ask him to stay.

With Ronaldo's future at the club uncertain, Real Madrid are now rethinking their decision on Morata and according to AS, they are considering putting negotiations with Manchester United on hold.

"He says I want to leave and that's it, as a president you can't do anything other than let him go and get the best possible deal".
