Manchester United ‘enquired’ about forwards in case Cristiano Ronaldo completed a deadline-day move away from Old Trafford.

Ronaldo just returned to Manchester United for a second tenure last year, but there were uncertainties about whether he would still be on the club’s books when the summer transfer market closed last week.

Manchester United’s deadline-day deal to capture Espanyol star Raul de Tomas fell through.

According to the source, the four-cap Spain international was willing to leave Espanyol following conflicts with new manager Diego Martinez, and a move to Old Trafford seemed appealing, but a deal could not be reached after conversations.

Before the transfer window closed, Manchester United were not the only Premier League team connected with de Tomas, who has scored 107 goals in his senior club career.

Aston Villa, West Ham United, Everton, and Newcastle United all said to be interested in the Espanyol forward.

However, with four years remaining on de Tomas’ contract, the La Liga club was in a strong bargaining position and under no pressure to authorize his departure.

It is thought that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was not in a rush to recruit a replacement center striker after signing Antony from Ajax for £86 million.
