Cristiano Ronaldo ready to return to Manchester United?

Published 1 Comments

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to return to Premier League giants Manchester United before his career is over, according to the Daily Mail.

The Real Madrid star reportedly told the publication: ”I love Manchester. Everyone knows that-I have said it many times. Manchester is in my heart. I left many good times there, the supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.”

However he did also insist that he is happy at Madrid and still has four years on his contract at Santiago Bernabeu. Yet the fact remains that he has not ruled out a sensational return to where it all started.

Record transfers

The first-ever Portuguese player to wear the Red Devils shirt became a star after his transfer from Sporting Lisbon for £12.2 million at only age 18. Handed the iconic No.7 jersey by Sir Alex Ferguson, Ronaldo had a brilliant six year spell at Old Trafford, scoring 118 goals in 292 appearances for the club before moving to Madrid for a record fee of £80 million in 2009.

Ronaldo and Sir Alex

The World Player of the Year has since hailed the influence of Sir Alex Ferguson in his career and said Sir Alex is the only manager he would call a friend.

Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford in March 2013, playing for Madrid against United in the Champions League, where he scored the winning goal. Greeted to a warm reception by fans back then, Ronaldo hopes he can some day again play for The Red Devils before calling it a day in his professional football career.

Not happy with The Galacticos’ transfer policy

According to sources the Portuguese captain has voiced his concerns regarding the transfer activity of Madrid in letting players like Mesut Ozil, Angel di Maria and Xabi Alonso leave, which incidentally has not gone down well with club president Florentino Perez.

The 29-year-old praised the acquisitions of Di Maria and Radamel Falcao by United. He believes the glory days will be back at Old Trafford and maybe he too will be a part of it in the years to come.
