Cristiano Ronaldo fuels transfer speculation further by changing his Instagram profile picture from him in a Real Madrid shirt to him donning the Portugal kit

Man United fans are starting to get very excited indeed

Brace yourself, Manchester United fans.

Cristiano Ronaldo has dumped his profile photo of him in a Real Madrid shirt in a move that will further fuel transfer speculation.

The 31-year-old megastar has sensationally told Madrid he wants to leave them and move back to United, according to reports in Spain and Portugal.

And today, Ronaldo decided to change up his Instagram profile pic, swapping the Real Madrid one with another showing him in a Portugal kit.

Hang on, he did what?!

Of course, it could just be because he is representing Portugal in the Confederations Cup.

But according to one social media user, “he has never done this in the past”.

It led to many speculating that he could indeed be seeking an exit from the La Liga champions.

Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly said to not feel protected by Real Madrid over tax fraud claims

The four-time Ballon d’Or winner has enjoyed another sensational season at the Bernabeu, but is said to feel the club has not protected him sufficiently after he was charged with allegedly evading £13million in tax.

Real Madrid appeared to completely back him, but a different picture has since emerged which may suggest why he wants out after eight years at the club.

A Bola reported this morning Ronaldo has decided his time in Spain has come to an end and he has communicated this “irreversible” decision as final to Madrid president Florentino Perez.

The shocking news was backed up hours later on the website of newspaper Marca, which is viewed as Madrid’s mouthpiece.

Real later contacted all Spanish media outlets and requested them not to publish pictures of Ronaldo in a Los Blancos shirt when covering the story.

Ronaldo, who left Manchester United to join Real Madrid in 2009 and won everything with Los Blancos, was also puzzlingly left out of a video promo for Madrid’s new kit.

Excited?

We sure are.
