Cristiano Ronaldo wants to return to Manchester United to play under former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, Fabio Capello has claimed.

The Portugal international opened the door to a potential exit at The Bernabeu following Real Madrid’s 3-1 win against Liverpool FC in the Champions League final.

Ronaldo failed to get on the score sheet in the Kiev showpiece and didn’t find the net in the Champions League semi-finals to make a slow end to the season.

The 33-year-old is thought to be unhappy at Real Madrid following his controversial interview in the immediate aftermath of the European Cup final.

Ronaldo worked with Mourinho for three seasons at Real Madrid before the Portuguese coach returned to Chelsea FC in 2013.

The Portugal captain won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Champions League during an eight-year spell at Manchester United.

Former England manager Capello claimed that Ronaldo wants to return to the Red Devils to work with Mourinho once again.

“Cristiano Ronaldo’s future with Real Madrid? Cristiano wants to return to Manchester United alongside Mourinho,” Capello is quoted as saying by Daily Star.

“I think he will eventually leave Madrid to go back to England. When? This I don’t know.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season to make a marked improvement under Mourinho.

However, the Red Devils failed to win silverware in the Portuguese manager’s second season following a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC at Wembley.
