The 32-year-old stole the show with a stunning goal as a youthful Real Madrid side beat Fiorentina 2-1 in a friendly at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night.

But the Old Trafford favourite could be heading for the exit, according to reports in Spain.

United’s former No.7 was linked with a return to Manchester earlier this summer after he was reportedly upset over his tax evasion case.

He then appeared to be staying until he was rocked by a five-match ban after being sent off against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup, after which he pushed the referee.

A source close to Ronaldo, long linked with a return to Old Trafford, told the paper: “For now, he’s just concentrating on playing.

“However, we cannot guarantee whether he will stay or leave.

It is unlikely Ronaldo will leave the European champions, however.

Boss Zinedine Zidane hailed his performance during Real’s win over Serie A Fiorentina.

Speaking to Real Madrid TV, he said: "That's what this man is capable of.

“We’re happy to have him here.”
