RONALDO’S TICKET HOME

Cristiano Ronaldo became the all-time top scorer in the Euros this morning with a late brace to cap off a 3-0 win for Portugal against Hungary.

It moved him just three goals short of Iran’s Ali Daei’s international goalscoring record of 109 but question marks remain about exactly where he will be playing next season.

He only has one year remaining on his current Juventus contract and the Italians are reportedly keen to offload him and begin a rebuild after a poor season – even if Ronaldo did claim Serie A’s golden boot with 29 goals.

And Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that Manchester United have actually tabled a £17m-a-year ($31m) offer to bring him back to Old Trafford, with Paul Pogba, who is also in the final year of his deal, going the other way.

However, they add that Ronaldo would be reluctant to go back to the place where he won his first Ballon d’Or and would prefer to go to Paris and join PSG.

‘AGENT MAHREZ ON DUTY’

Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez has sent the rumour mill spinning with a cheeky Twitter tease involving Erling Haaland.

Haaland is the most-wanted striker in the world at the moment, with Europe’s biggest clubs becoming more and more tempting to move for him a year earlier than when his low release clause comes into effect at the end of next season.

Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and more are all interested but Mahrez may have just got Manchester City to the front of the queue.

Mahrez has been partying with while on holiday on the Greek island of Mykonos and who happened to be at the same bar as the City winger at the same time? Haaland of course.

A video of the two dancing around and waving napkins together quickly went viral.

Mahrez, after seeing the video online, re-posted it to Twitter, with the caption “Agent Mahrez on duty”.

He later clarified the pair were “just having fun” but it won’t stop the rumours coming.

LEEDS IN SHOCK MOVE FOR REAL STAR

Leeds United are reportedly leading the race to sign Real Madrid legend Marcelo, according to the Daily Mirror.

The British newspaper is claiming the 33-year-old is not in the plans of new Real boss Carlo Ancelotti and will be moved on after 14 years, five LaLiga titles and four Champions Leagues with the club.

However, Everton are another club reportedly interested as they look to sign a left back to compete with Lucas Digne, who is being linked to a move away himself.

The Brazilian is said to want a two-year deal and is available for as little as £5m.
