Man United transfers: Cristiano Ronaldo hints at Old Trafford return
Cristiano Ronaldo admits he'd love to link up with Wayne Rooney again before he calls time on his career
Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted that he could make a sensational return to Manchester United in the future as the Portugal star’s future remains a source of speculation.
The Real Madrid forward has long been linked with a move back to the club he left in 2009 and was touted as a possible target for Louis van Gaal’s side during the summer transfer window.
Now, the 30-year-old Ballon d’Or winner has left the door open for a potential return to Old Trafford by admitting that he would love to play alongside United captain Wayne Rooney at some point in the future.
Ronaldo is quoted as saying by The Sun: “I miss playing with Rooney. Maybe we will play together again one day.
“He was the kid of England, everyone loved him. He was so powerful I was calling him Pitbull. The power of Wayne Rooney is his mentality and strength and he never stops.
“He’s a fantastic team player and he scores! He’s a fantastic boy and he helped me a lot when he came to join us in Manchester.”
Ronaldo scored 84 goals in 196 matches for United in a six-year spell after joining from Sporting Lisbon and won his first Ballon d’Or award whilst at the club in 2008.
He has won the Ballon d’Or award for the last two years running ahead of Lionel Messi.
