Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Real Madrid next summer claims Graham Hunter

Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Real Madrid behind next summer, according to Spanish football expert Graham Hunter.

As reported by Sky Sports, Hunter has revealed that Real Madrid could decide to sell the Portuguese superstar if the player or Jorge Mendes asks for a move at the end of the season. 

Mendes looks after a number of the biggest names in football, but it's far from certain as to whether he will push for his client to complete another big transfer.

Ronaldo, 30, remains one of the best players in world football - and Hunter claims that Manchester United have the power to 'attract him', but has revealed that French giants PSG may have made an enquiry for his signature in the last transfer window.

Speaking about the forward, Hunter stated: "What is being briefed around the power offices at the Bernabeu is that there was an enquiry and a bid from PSG.

United power 

"Clearly at that stage if Manchester United, who have yearned to get their major market and scoring property back for the last stage of his career, have seen that Ronaldo might be moving then they have the power to attract him to come back and relive the old times.

"The key thing is that it is feasible to argue that Real Madrid might cash in on Ronaldo if Jorge Mendes or the player came in and said they might like to go next summer."

Forget it 

Ultimately, Hunter is right: Manchester United certainly have the financial strength to tempt Ronaldo into completing an emotional return to the Theatre of Dreams. 

But, perhaps, it's time for all involved to move on. Ronaldo's stint on English soil was a remarkable one, but he shouldn't return as he approaches the latter stages of his career.

Of course, he'd improve United, but Louis van Gaal should concentrate on developing a number of his exciting young forwards in Manchester. The likes of Anthony Martial, Memphis Depay, Adnan Januzaj and co. are the future.
