It would be a signing that Manchester United fans would love to happen, that of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford for the remainder of his career. After the past few weeks, Ronaldo himself has been flirting with Manchester United in various quotes, and with rumblings that he is unhappy at Real Madrid, could it be time for Ronaldo to come home?
The one main factor, if that was to happen, would be down to his agent, or should we say super agent, Jorge Mendes. According to the Express, Mendes is more than ready to convince Cristiano Ronaldo to pack his bags and come back to Manchester at the end of the season after forming a fantastic relationship with Ed Woodward and Louis van Gaal with the transfers of two of his other clients, Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao.
Mendes is reportedly sourcing Manchester United as the best option for his client Ronaldo, especially if they manage to get back into the UEFA Champions League by coming in the top four this season.
In a recent interview over in Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo said:
“I love Manchester.
“Everyone knows that – I have said it many times. Manchester is in my heart. I left many good friends there, the supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.”
He also commented on the signings of Angel di Maria, his former team-mate and that of Radamel Falcao, calling them some of the best players in the World and that they will do well in Manchester.
If Ronaldo is to come back to Old Trafford, it is not going to be cheap, with Real Madrid likely to want to cash in at the end of next season as the player moves closer to his 30th birthday. We’ll have to wait and see, but one things for sure, it would be amazing to see Ronaldo back at Manchester United.
