According to CNN World Sport News, Manchester United have received a world-record, unconditional offer of £80million for Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

"At Cristiano's request—who has again expressed his desire to leave—and after discussion with the player's representatives, United have agreed to give Real Madrid permission to talk to the player."

United held off Real's advances last summer, with manager Sir Alex Ferguson traveling to the Portugal camp during the Euro 2008 finals to hold crisis talks with Ronaldo.

Matters are expected to be concluded by 30 June. The club will not comment until further notice.

It is rumored that Cristiano and Kaká will be presented together at the end of the month.
