AS Roma 'Trying Everything' To Sign Cristiano Ronaldo From Man United

​AS Roma are 'trying everything' to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United, according to stunning reports. 

​Ronaldo has been the subject of intense transfer speculation following a disappointing campaign as Man United finished outside of the top four.

He's thought to be frustrated with the club over the lack of transfer action this summer and is reportedly ready to quit Old Trafford.

Further reports suggest the 37-year-old was offered to Bayern Munich by his agents amid growing uncertainty surrounding his future. 

Now, Italian outlet Retesport ​claim Roma are 'trying everything' to get Ronaldo.

Former Roma defender Fabio Petruzzi told the outlet that he has information from his old club confirming they are in pursuit of the Portugal international.

A move to Roma would see Ronaldo reunite with fellow countryman and former boss Jose Mourinho, who had the superstar forward at Real Madrid. 

There's more Portuguese connection at Roma in the shape of director Tiago Pinto​, who is in charge of transfers.

However, just like Man United, Roma are without Champions League football for next season. 

Mourinho's side finished in sixth place in Serie A last season. 

Ronaldo has already enjoyed a prolific spell in Italy's top flight. 

He spent three seasons at Juventus and scored 101 goals in 134 games, winning the Scudetto twice. 

Of course, Ronaldo left Turin to return to Man United, where he scored 24 goals in all competitions. 

The Red Devils have appointed Erik ten Hag ahead of the new season and reports state that the Dutchman has spoken to the five-time Ballon d'Or winner. 

At the time of Ten Hag’s appointment, Ronaldo said: "What I know about (ten Hag) is he did a fantastic job for Ajax, that he's an experienced coach. But we need to give him time.​

"Things need to change the way he wants. I hope we have success, of course, because, if you have success, all of Manchester is going to have success as well. I wish him the best.

"We are happy and excited, not only as players, but the supporters as well. I wish him the best and let's believe that, next year, we are going to win trophies."
