It seems that every day there's a new rumour linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a move back to Manchester United, and today is no different.

This time it's one of the Real Madrid superstar's friends, Jose Semedo, who has added fuel to the fire by claiming he wants to end his career at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo left Manchester United back in 2009 to join Real Madrid for a then-record £80 million, where he's scored 325 goals in 312 La Liga appearances and won the Ballon d'Or twice.

Previous reports in Spain have claimed that Ronaldo won't see out his current contract in Madrid that expires in 2018, with Gareth Bale the man lined up by club president Florentino Perez as his long-term replacement.

That change could happen as soon as next year according to newspaper Sport, and Semedo says Ronaldo still favours a move back to Manchester United. The 30-year-old said: "He is very happy at Real Madrid and he loves English football, he loves English people and deep down I think he will come back to England. He doesn’t want to finish his career without coming back to England.

"He said he would wish Real Madrid is in England, but that is not possible so I believe he will end his career in English football."

Despite claims that Ronaldo could be in decline, he's proved his doubters wrong by bagging 12 goals in 12 appearances for Madrid in all competitions this season.

Next up for the Portuguese superstar and Real Madrid is a La Liga showdown against Las Palmas, before they go up against Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Do you think Ronaldo will be back at Manchester United before he is 31?
