Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo go hand-in-hand. It seems ever since the moment the Portuguese star left Old Trafford for Real Madrid, he has been linked with a return.

And now, Louis van Gaal has confirmed the Red Devils' stance on the 30-year-old and it is sure to delight supporters.

The Dutch boss, speaking after his side's 2-1 win over Watford on Saturday, confirmed United were interested in resigning Los Blancos' all-time record goalscorer, but conceded players of his ilk were often 'ungettable'.

As per the Daily Mail, Van Gaal said: "He plays on the wings and he is fast and scores goals. I don't think there is a trainer in the world that doesn't like him.

"Of course we would look. We are looking at all the players, not only Ronaldo, but these players are mostly not to get. Let's wait, and hope."

Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure during El Clasico on Saturday evening as Real Madrid were annihilated 4-0 by Barcelona.

The three-time Ballon d'Or winner has not been his usual self under Rafa Benitez, and it appears something will have to give at the Bernabeu.

"Of course we would look. We are looking at all the players, not only Ronaldo, but these players are mostly not to get. Let's wait, and hope."

PSG have also been heavily linked with a move for Ronaldo, but Manchester United will always hold a special place in his heart.

The Red Devils have shown their financial capability in recent years and would be able to fund a move for their former number seven. 

But a lot can change between now and next summer, and what Ronaldo's future holds is still anyone's guess. But talk of a return to Old Trafford has certainly excited United fans.
