David Beckham wants Cristiano Ronaldo to return to Manchester United

Published Add your comment

David Beckham has revealed that he would like to see Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo return to Manchester United. 

As reported by talkSPORT, the former England captain, who played for both the Red Devils and the La Liga giants throughout his wonderful career, has insisted, however, that Ronaldo appears to be 'very comfortable in Spain'.

The forward left Old Trafford in a deal worth £80 million back in 2009 and has since gone from strength-to-strength in the Spanish capital.

In fact, the Ballon d'Or holder scored his 500th and 501st career goals in Real's Champions League victory over Swedish side Malmo on Wednesday evening.

Unsurprisingly, as well as insisting that he'd like to see Ronaldo back in Manchester, Beckham has paid tribute to the 30-year-old.

Beckham comments 

Speaking to talkSPORT, Beckham stated: “Ronaldo getting to a milestone like that so quickly is unbelievable.

“Congratulations to Ronaldo because what he has done is incredible and I‘m sure Real Madrid as a club are proud of that.

“Like [Lionel] Messi, these players just don’t get good from nothing. They work hard. That is what I have always told my kids and other kids that I have been around – these players are so good because they work so hard.

"I'd like to see him come back, as a Man United fan. That would be great because he was so great at Man United.

"But he is at Real Madrid now, he is very comfortable in his life there, the fans obviously love him there, and he looks a real Real Madrid player now."


Beckham, much like the majority of the Manchester United faithful, would love to see Ronaldo star for the club again, but it's starting to look extremely unlikely. 

At 30-years-old, the Portuguese star will soon be approaching the latter stages of his career, so would it really be wise for the United hierarchy to spend such a huge sum on the superstar?

United have an array of young attacking talent at their disposal: Anthony Martial, Memphis Depay and Andreas Pereira can lead the club into a new era of success.
