Ander Herrera took part in a brief question-and-answer session with his Twitter followers on Wednesday night and racked up the retweets with his responses.

The Manchester United midfielder, who provided the assist for Anthony Martial’s dramatic injury-time winner against Everton in the FA Cup semi-finals last weekend, was asked if David de Gea will leave this summer and whether he would prefer to have Harry Kane or Sergio Aguero.

Herrera was also asked if Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Old Trafford this summer - and you can see his reply by scrolling down this page.

“We signing Ronaldo in the summer?” one fan asked Herrera.

The Spaniard gave a simple two-word response but it was enough to get some Manchester United fans excited: “Sounds good”.

United fans react

Here’s how the excitable United supporters reacted…

Herrera's response to De Gea question

In response to the question “will David de Gea leave this summer?”, Herrera tweeted back: “hopefully not”.

A decent enough answer for the Red Devils’ faithful but perhaps not the certain response they were hoping for.

Kane or Aguero?

And when asked if he would prefer Kane or Aguero, the 26-year-old replied: “tough question , I like both but I have to take one maybe Kane because is younger.”

PSG move more likely for CR7

Despite the fact Ronaldo has long flirted with the idea of a romantic return to Old Trafford, the chances of Manchester United re-signing the Portuguese superstar are slim.

A more likely next destination for Ronaldo would appear to be the current French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

It was reported by Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo earlier this week that Ronaldo has reached an agreement with PSG - but he will only move to the Parc des Princes if he fails to successfully negotiate a new deal with Real Madrid.

The report added that Cristiano ‘signed’ the agreement following a series of meetings in Paris and Madrid with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Move to PSG makes sense for Cristiano

Ronaldo, who is quite clearly obsessed with personal records, would stand a better chance of continuing scoring goals at a ridiculous rate if he moves to Ligue 1 over the Premier League.

Furthermore, the 31-year-old will be acutely aware that helping PSG become European champions for the first time in their history could land him a fourth Ballon d’Or.

Ronaldo is desperate to cement his status as the greatest footballer of all time, but there’s little chance of that happening if he finishes his career with fewer Ballon d’Or awards than his great rival Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or on three occasions to date, whereas Messi secured the prestigious individual accolade for a record-breaking fifth time earlier this year.

Should Cristiano Ronaldo join PSG or return to Man Utd after leaving Real Madrid? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
