- Manchester United have pulled out of the race to sign Ronaldo
- United would not be able to meet up with his price tag
- Jose Mourinho is however said to be interested in signing Alvaro Morata
Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
The Red Devils have shown serious interest to land the 32-year-old Portuguese international when he told the Spanish champions that he wanted to leave the Bernabeu.
But it now looks like Manchester United would not be able to meet the release mega clause to land Ronaldo who left Old Trafford eight years ago.
United boss Jose Mourinho wants to concentrate on his original target in Alvaro Morata to solve his front man worries rather than splash the cash on his teammate.
Spain international Morata is the cheaper option with a £65million price tag stuck on his rather than the £880m it would cost to sign Ronaldo.
