Manchester United have accepted an £80million transfer bid from Real Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The club's official website states that at Ronaldo's request, who has "once again expressed his desire to leave", the Premier League champions have allowed the Spanish giants to talk to one of their star players.

They add that they expect any dealings to be completed by June 30th.

The news comes two days after Madrid sealed the capture of Brazilian Kaka from AC Milan for a world-record sterling fee of £56m.

The spending spree had been launched by newly elected club president Florentino Perez, best known for his previous time at the club when he signed such players as Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Michael Owen, Robinho, and former Inter Milan striker Ronaldo.

Other clubs will now surely be waiting for more transfers enquiries, with Madrid also being linked to Liverpool's Xavi Alonso, Valencia's David Villa, and Bayern Munich's French winger Franck Ribery.

Ronaldo, who joined the club in 2003 from Sporting CP, has made 292 appearances scoring 118 goals.
