MANCHESTER UNITED met with Nike officials yesterday to plot a mega bid for Cristiano Ronaldo.
An Old Trafford return would cost at least £65million.
And it would reunite Ronaldo with Wayne Rooney, who Alex Ferguson has vowed will be a United player next season.
The Nike representatives flew in to London to also talk about the renewal of their shirt sponsorship agreement with the Red Devils.
But top of the agenda was talks about how they could help the club get Ronaldo.
Nike is desperate to get the Portuguese star back to the biggest football club that wear their logo.
They currently sponsor Ronaldo in terms of boots and sportswear but are frustrated that he runs out in an adidas shirt with Real Madrid every week.
They believe their global brand would be even stronger with him back in a Nike United shirt.
United would need to put together a deal of £65m plus a player like Nani to tempt Real to sell this summer.
But they could have to go further for a player they sold to Real for £80m almost four years ago.
Nike want to help in any way they can.DONARD GUGAJ
