Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes Cristiano Ronaldo could end his career at Manchester United.

Ronaldo joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon back in 2003 for a mere £12.24million before sealing a then world record £80million move to Real Madrid.

The Portuguese international enjoyed his six-year stint at Manchester United, where he won three Premier League titles and a Champions League winner's medal.

However - despite being extremely settled in Manchester - Ronaldo decided to achieve his dream by moving back to Iberia to play for La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Real Madrid forward Ronaldo has progressed into the world's best player since moving to Spain - but still cherishes his time at Manchester United.

Calderon, who failed to tempt the Red Devils into selling Ronaldo during his time as president of Real Madrid, believes his love for Manchester United could see rejoin the north-east giants in the future.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Calderon said on Ronaldo: "You never know, maybe at the end of his career he would like to go back to England and Manchester United, but I would love to see him end his career with Real Madrid.

“When I signed him he said that, for him, Manchester was his home. He was quite happy there with the fans and the club and he consider Sir Alex Ferguson as a father.

“Everything in Manchester was perfect. He had all he needed at the time but he wanted to come and play for Real Madrid which, I have no doubt, for me, is the best club in the world.”

Ronaldo was today denied the chance of returning to Old Trafford at the beginning of April with Real Madrid as the two sides were separated in the Champions League quarter-final draw.
