Manchester United favourites to sign Cristiano Ronaldo

If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid before he hangs up his boots, Manchester United are likely to be at the front of the queue to re-sign him, according to Paddy Power odds.

The bookmaker has the Red Devils priced at 11/8 to become Ronaldo's next permanent club, ahead of Sporting Lisbon, Chelsea and AS Monaco.

The 29-year-old was linked with a shock move back to Old Trafford last summer; however, the prolific goalscorer ended speculation over his future by signing a new long-term contract with the Spanish giants in September.

The Portugal captain, who has scored 235 goals in 231 games since arriving at the Bernabeu in 2009, is subsequently tied to the nine-time European champions until 2018.

Ronaldo will be 33 years old by then, but would Manchester United still be tempted take him back for a second spell?

The United faithful still sing the name of Ronaldo, who won three Premier League titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups, one Champions League and a FIFA Club World Cup during his six years at the Theatre of Dreams.
