CR7 has been linked with a return to Old Trafford and Solskjaer seems to have added fuel to speculations with his recent comments.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he is “looking to strengthen his squad” amid reports linking Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United.

The news of Ronaldo’s potential return to Man United is nothing new, with the Portuguese forward having constantly been tipped to retrace his steps during his Real Madrid days. The idea had always seemed a bit far-fetched – but not this time.

Juventus are on the brink of missing out on Champions League football next season and Ronaldo, according to Todofichajes, has already made up his mind to leave the club.

It was recently reported the 36-year-old hired a transport company to move all his supercars to an unknown destination.

Man United, meanwhile, are said to be in the market to bolster their attacking ranks and have also been linked with Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

“We’re looking to strengthen the squad, of course, there’s many, many, many things that we have to consider when you put a squad together.

“I’m not saying that if Edi [Edinson Cavani] stays that means someone else in a forward position won’t come in.”

“I can’t talk about players that are in other teams,” Solskjaer responded when asked specifically about Kane. “I think you now me well enough, I don’t think that’s very respectful of any team, any players.

“There’s loads of good players out there: I could say Messi is interesting, and Ronaldo, but I can’t talk about them.”
