Cristiano Ronaldo is “dreaming” of a move back to Manchester United from Real Madrid, according to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague.

The Portugal captain has been heavily linked with a move back to the club he left in 2009 in recent days amid reports he is unhappy at the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo, 29, was reportedly upset to see Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso leave the club in recent seasons.

And Spanish football expert Balague says “everything is in place” for Ronaldo to seal a switch back to the Red Devils.

“He is unhappy and he’s said so – but then he corrected himself by saying ‘I didn’t mean what he said’. It was a bit confusing.

“Anyway, you have to say he’s not happy that Ozil left and he didn’t like the fact that Xabi Alonso and Di Maria left.

“He has this idea, I think, that at Real Madrid he is doing a job and he is working, but he enjoyed himself almost like a kid at Manchester United.

“He dreams of going back to Manchester United and Manchester United have got all the finances in place to get him.

“When will that be? It depends, of course, on a lot of things. It depends on Real Madrid and on Cristiano himself.

“I have a pretty good idea of when he wants to go. It won’t be this month or next month, but he wants to go back to Manchester United and everything is in place for him to return to Old Trafford.”
