Ronaldo rejoining Manchester United would be great for Premier League

Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, believes that Cristiano Ronaldo would be welcomed back to the Premier League with open arms, if the Real Madrid forward were to return to Old Trafford.

In an interview with talkSPORT on Saturday, the ex-England international turned Sky Sports pundit, reckons that there is a strong possibility the 28-year-old could make a sensational switch back to the club he left in 2009, thanks to the strong ties he built during his first spell in England.

Ronaldo's ever-lasting popularity was on show at Old Trafford during last week's Champions League last-16 clash between Manchester United and Real Madrid. But, Neville feels that his return would even delight fans of other Premier League sides.

"The rumours are growing around Manchester from the fans because he left in [exceptional] circusmtances," he explained.

"Not many players would leave United and say they wanted to leave United and still get such a great reception, but they always recognised it was his dream to play at Real Madrid.

"There is no secret to the fact he misses the security, the stability and the friendships that he had in Manchester, and the reception he got the other night was special for him."

Sir Alex Ferguson has made no secret of his admiration for the Portuguese international, who has gone on to establish himself as one of the world's best players during the last three-and-a-half years in the Spanish capital.

And, it's that fine form that is the sole reason why Neville thinks British football as a whole would be lifted if Ronaldo did leave the Santiago Bernabeu and come back to Manchester United in the summer.

"Forget Manchester United, I think, from a British football point of view, having Ronaldo back in the Premier League would be a great result for everybody," he added. "Because, to watch him week in, week out, would be a pleasure."
