Old and the new

Real Madrid paid a reported £63 million to bring Rodriguez to the Bernabeu from Monaco, in a move that was widely considered to be in preparation for Ronaldo's departure.

The 23-year-old has impressed since arriving in the summer but it appears he is yet to win the respect of Ronaldo. The Ballon d'Or holder showed little time for his young protege after kicking the player out of a training session.

Ronaldo frustration

Ronaldo's actions will throw more fuel on an already blazing fire. If reports are to be believed, the 29-year-old is fed up with seeing Real Madrid's best players sold and is ready to force a move away in the near future.

The Portuguese wants to return to the Premier League and the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been linked with a move.

Manchester United favourites

While Chelsea and Manchester City could afford to pay Ronaldo his £290,000-a-week wages, it appears the Red Devils are the best placed to bag his signature.

Not only does Louis van Gaal have the biggest transfer budget in the Premier League; thanks largely to Uefa's Financial Fair Play regulations, but Ronaldo has recently admitted that he still holds a special place in his heart for Old Trafford.

"I really did love being at Manchester United," he told the Daily Mail. "Believe me, they will be a good team again, I’m sure of it. It is a great club."

Ronaldo was turned from an arrogant youngster to the world's best player under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson and both Manchester United fans and officials would love to see their former star back.
