Ronaldo still a possible move to United
The possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Manchester United has once again occupied the back pages over the last few weeks. This is after the Spanish club made a very poor start to the league campaign by suffering two defeats in the opening three matches. Those defeats have raised questions about Madrid’s decision to sell Angel di Maria and Xabi Alonso just a few weeks before the start of the season. Ronaldo is thought to have questioned president Florentino Perez over this issue and it has sparked rumours that he will finally decide to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.
A lot of politics is involved in the running of Madrid and it has claimed the careers of many players over the last few decades. After completing the £ 60 million move to Manchester United, Di Maria was involved in a war of words with Madrid that appeared to suggest the same. According to former United defender and captain Gary Neville, signing the Portuguese superstar is a clear possibility right now. Ronaldo has openly spoken about returning to United one-day and he may jump at the chance to return to a club where stability is often the keyword. Sir Alex Ferguson, the man who made Ronaldo into the player he is today, may not be around, but the 29-year-old has a special relationship with the Old Trafford faithful.
"You'd have to say that with what they've done with Di Maria and Falcao it's more possible, it has to be, because they've shown the real intent to go and sign world-class players. We sat here three or four months ago deliberating over whether Manchester United could attract world-class talent. They've absolutely smashed that question out of the water and if they get him. Does he love Manchester? Does he love United? Yes, absolutely,” said Neville.
