"Ronaldo indicated to the Scot (Ferguson) that he felt unloved at Real Madrid and let down by some of the fans who had at times booed him despite his unbelievable goal-scoring feats for the Spanish giants", the Mirror reported.
After ending Real's five-year wait for a La Liga title in May, Ronaldo complained of being "treated like a criminal", as Spanish media speculated on tax fraud charges.
It should be noted that Ronaldo did not feature in United manager Jose Mourinho's transfer shortlist for this summer which he handed to Ed Woodward, the club's executive vice-chairman, in April.
"I remember when I signed Cristiano, he phoned me and said everyone at Manchester United was really happy and kind to him", he told the Sun.
"I only had to listen to Dr. Lobo Xavier [ António Lobo Xavier] firstly because he speaks very clearly about it and explains the situation very well - to understand there was no subject to discuss". And another twist in the tale has developed, and it involves Sir Alex Ferguson. Morata's prolific nature - he has one of the best goals to minutes ratio in the recently concluded season - has seen the Portuguese lock his eyes on the 24-year-old.
Ronaldo has often flirted with the idea of returning to United, but he has a number of options open to him if he desires a fresh start.
But Real Madrid, the two-time defending European champion, won't allow Ronaldo to dictate terms of his potential exit.
