Tyson Fury has outlined sensational plans to host a world title fight at Old Trafford – and upstage Cristiano Ronaldo in the process.
The Gypsy King is perhaps the one Manchester United supporter who isn’t happy to let Ronaldo have centre stage all to himself after his fantastic victory over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas at the weekend.
Fury even cheekily told Ronaldo that Manchester ‘ain’t big enough for both of us’ as he opened up on his hope of a homecoming in the future.

Speaking to The Sun, Fury said: ‘I have two fights left out here (in Vegas) but I’d love to bring a world title fight back to Manchester.
‘It has always been a dream of mine to fight at Old Trafford. The last fight there was Eubank versus Benn in 1993 (it finished as a draw) and that was massive.
‘I’m really happy Ronaldo’s back at Old Trafford – but this town ain’t big enough for the both of us!
‘If I lived in Manchester it would be a problem. But I’m an hour up the motorway in Morecambe so he’s got plenty of distance.’
Fury has been spotted at Old Trafford on numerous occasions and his United fandom is well known.

Recently he was interviewed by Gary Neville for The Overlap, where the former United defender gifted Fury a painting of Eric Cantona, one of his favourite players.
Fury will be hoping United can follow his lead and return to winning ways when the Premier League resumes this weekend.
