CRISTIANO RONALDO’s agent, Jorge Mendes, met with Barcelona president Joan Laporta over a potential transfer move, according to reports.

The 37-year-old legendary forward sensationally told the club he wants to leave in order to play Champions League football.

United, though, have insisted Ronaldo is not for sale just a year after resigning the Portugal ace.

He was set to hold showdown talks with Erik ten Hag on Monday in what was scheduled to be his first day back at the club after a summer break.

According to RMC Sport, Ronaldo’s agent, Mendes, has held talks with Champions League side Barca.

The super agent had a dinner with Barca president Laporta, where Ronaldo’s future was discussed, as well as a potential move to the Catalan giants.

However, such a move may not go down well with United OR Real Madrid fans.

Ronaldo moved to Real from United for £84million in 2009.

He went on to score 450 goals and assist 131 in 438.

Ronaldo won two LaLiga titles, as well as FOUR Champions Leagues during his time in the Spanish capital.

The forward was also recognised individually by winning the Ballon d’Or four times during his nine-year stint at Real.

A move to Real’s fierce rivals could cause a stir among fans.

Bayern Munich as well as Chelsea also hold an interest in Ronaldo.

New Blues chairman Todd Boehly is a huge fan of Ronaldo and wants to make him the first marquee signing of his ownership.

Boss Thomas Tuchel and Boehly are now set to hold talks on whether to follow up with a firm bid for Ronaldo — or invest elsewhere in the squad.

Tuchel thinks Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling and defenders are the priority, having lost key centre-backs this summer.
