Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother, Dolores Aveiro, wants her son to join Manchester United over Paris Saint-Germain if he leaves Real Madrid next summer.

This is according to the Mirror, who claim Aveiro feels it would be safer for her son and her grandson, Cristiano Junior, to move back to Manchester rather than Paris.

It’s understood she is concerned about the prospect of the family moving to the French capital following last month’s terror attacks.

The report also claims that, because she looks after Cristiano Junior, Aveiro’s opinion “carries significant weight” with Ronaldo.

The three-time Ballon d’Or winner has been strongly linked with a move to both Manchester United and PSG in recent weeks and it looks increasingly likely that he will leave the Bernabeu next summer, having achieved everything with the Spanish giants since joining the club in 2009.

PSG move could be more appealing

While the opportunity to return to Old Trafford, where he completed his transformation from raw teenager to world-class goal machine, will naturally appeal to the 30-year-old, a move to PSG may have been more likely before his mother’s intervention.

A transfer to Paris would provide an opportunity for Ronaldo to create more history with a new club - PSG outfit have never won the Champions League before but are not a million miles away from doing so - while the Ligue 1 outfit are reportedly prepared to pay the forward a huge £250,000-a-week after tax.

Could Ronaldo play under Van Gaal?

One potential concern Ronaldo may have about returning to United is the fact Louis van Gaal is in charge.

The Red Devils have failed to produce entertaining, attack-minded football under the tactically-rigid Dutch coach and a growing number of supporters are questioning whether the 64-year-old is the right man for the job.
