Ronaldo, who also won the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008, has scored a record 105 goals in the competition, 11 more than Barcelona's Lionel Messi, his nearest challenger.

Ronaldo, on Confederations Cup duty in Russian Federation with Portugal, is reportedly furious over a tax probe into the offshore accounts dealing with his image rights, and has reportedly vowed to leave Spain.

The report suggests Ronaldo told Fergie that he felt unloved at the club and has grown exhausted of his own fans booing him on certain occasions at a function before the Champions League final.

Sky Sports suggest United are not confident of striking a deal for Ronaldo, as they report that the Old Trafford club expect their former No.7 to resolve his difficulties in Spain and remain at Real Madrid.
