Are Manchester United making a move for Cristiano Ronaldo through the foxy Alex Ferguson? Is Gareth Bale on his way out of the Bernabeu? And what's this about Steven Gerrard going to Scotland? It's all happening in today's Transfer Talk

• Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is "trying to convince Cristiano Ronaldo to come back" to the club. That's the startling claim in The Sun, the paper reporting that Fergie even dined with the Portuguese preener last week after watching Real Madrid slump to a 4-3 home defeat to Schalke in the Champions League. Sources told The Sun that Ferguson, who brought Ronaldo to Old Trafford in 2003, is hopeful he can lure him back to the club to see out his career. It's alleged that Ronaldo is "disillusioned" at Madrid and may be open to a move away from the Bernabeu at the end of this season.
