Alfie Evan's father says a hospital in Rome is ready to care for his son. It comes after Tom Evans flew to the Vatican for a private audience with the Pope.
He begged the head of the Catholic church to save his son. Following the meeting, the Pope led crowds in silent prayer for Alfie.
Speaking after landing back into Manchester Airport on Thursday afternoon, Mr Evans said he had met with hospital staff at the Bambino Gesú hospital in Rome.
Supporters were waiting for Mr Evans' arrival back from the Vatican at Manchester Airport.
The Supreme Court is currently considering a 2nd application by his family to appeal the decision to withdraw Alfie's life support.
Doctors at Alder Hey Hospital say continuing Alfie's treatment would be inhumane, and ultimately prove futile.
