Man United transfers: ‘Cristiano Ronaldo keen on Old Trafford return’
Cristiano Ronaldo is keen on rejoining Manchester United in the coming months, says Guillem Balague
Cristiano Ronaldo is keen on rejoining Manchester United in the coming months, according to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague.
The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch back to the club he left for £80m in 2009 amid reports that he is unsettled at Real Madrid.
And Spanish football expert Balague feels that a move back to Old Trafford for the Portugal captain is very much on the cards.
“I am convinced that he wants to come,” Balague told Sports Mole.
“I know that he wants to come and how much Manchester United want him. But, there is a third party, which is Real Madrid and they have the power over the timing, which is as much as I can say.
“I do not believe that he is unhappy at Real Madrid because he is realising a lot of his dreams by being there. However, it is a club where sometimes players do feel what they are doing is a job. A lot of the time they want to recover the feeling of being a kid and playing the game and at Man United he had that.
“He also realises that. It was a wonderful era for him. He was growing and everybody loved him, not at first, but eventually they did.
“That was some time ago, though. He is going to come to a different Premier League and a different Man United so it will be fascinating to see it all take place.”
