Arguably one of the world's most talented and skilful players, Cristiano Ronaldo, has blown away the rumours of a gigantic return to the club that made him so impressive, Manchester United, as reported by BBC Sport.

When he joined the Spanish giants from United in 2009, he outstandingly became the worlds most expensive player, valued at £80 million. Since his successful reign at Real Madrid began, the Portuguese goal machine has scored an irresistibly admirable 194 goals in 174 appearances at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo to United rumours

It is his unbelievable talent that supposedly has Louis van Gaal ready to offer Ronaldo a ticket to return to his old stomping ground.

The 29-year-old received the honourable Golden Shoe award on Wednesday for the La Liga 2013/14 season, with 31 goals to his name.

"I am honoured to win this award. It means a lot to me after all of my hard work" said the forward. 


It hasn't taken long for Ronaldo to adapt to life in the 2014/15 season. 22 goals in all competitions is a statistic that the 29-year-old labelled as "impressive" and "something he can be proud of" in an interview with the BBC on Wednesday after collecting his award.

Set for Madrid stay

The Portuguese man also added: "I want to be at the best club in the world," which evidently isn't United currently due to their inconsistent run of form.

He recently announced that he wanted to be the biggest in the world and not just the biggest in his country, so his opportunities of achieving that at United would be limited as they are not in European competitions as of yet.

"I hope to finish my contract with Real Madrid at 33 and after that we'll see if they want me to stay."

When questioned on writing the final chapter of his career with the Red Devils, the 29-year-old merely replied: "I don't know about that just yet."
