Plans are in place to line-up a sensational return to Manchester United for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo as part of Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial, according to The Sun.

The former Leeds United man will be celebrating a decade of being a Red Devil and a special one-off game will be a part of the proposed year-long list of events and fundraisers to mark the feat.

Ronaldo is thought to be on the top of the list of players to participate in the game, but United will need to work around the Portugal international’s timetable at Madrid.

Nothing will be discussed formally until after Euro 2012 and next summer's Olympics, but movement is already happening behind the scenes to bring the attacker back to Old Trafford for the first time since leaving in 2009.
