Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo has been reportedly offered to Spanish side Barcelona this summer in what could be the biggest transfer ever in football history.
This is according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague who reported that the former Real Madrid star may be making a return to the Spanish La Liga.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been playing for Juventus for the past two seasons in which the Portuguese have won the Serie A title two times.
But the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has not been able to win the Champions League with the Old Lady which is one of the major reasons they signed him from Real Madrid.
During Cristiano Ronaldo's first season at Juventus, the forward and his teammates were sent out of the Champions League by Ajax in the quarter-final.
Turin fans were of the views that their side would do well this term in the Champions League, but they crashed out losing against Lyon in the round of 16. Juventus chiefs were angry with their elimination in the Champions League, which forced them to sack manager Maurizio Sarri.
However, Balague claimed Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes has been instructed to find a new club for the superstar and Barcelona were among the teams approached.
The contact with Barcelona raises the mouthwatering prospect of Ronaldo and Lionel Messi playing together for the first time in their careers. They have been rivals for more than 10 years in which these two players have won 11 Ballon d'Or awards.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za had reported Cristiano Ronaldo, who just won the Italia Serie with Juventus, has splashed £8.5 million (R191 million) to purchase the 2020 limited edition of the Bugatti Centodieci.
There has been speculation about the player’s intent to buy the posh ride, and the mega purchase has now been confirmed following his second Scudetto triumph.
Briefly.co.za learned that the Italian outlet Tuttosport reported that the 35-year-old, who has officially paid for the ride, will have to wait until 2021 before he takes delivery of the new motor.
