Cristiano Ronaldo is “fed up” at Real Madrid and could seek a move back to Manchester United next summer, according to the Spanish club’s former president.

Speculation linking the Portugal star with a shock return to Old Trafford has gathered pace in recent weeks amid reports that the 29-year-old is open to a move away from the Bernabeu.

My impression is he is fed up with the policy of the current president

Ramon Calderon

And ex-Madrid chief Ramon Calderon, who helped complete the £80m deal to bring Ronaldo to the Spanish club back in 2009, says the Ballon d’Or winner would be keen on a move back to United.

“When I signed him in 2009, I remember he said he was grateful to Manchester United,” Calderon told talkSPORT.

“He had a marvellous time there, he likes everything. It is a really great club.”

Calderon continued: “My impression is he is fed up with the policy of the current president [Florentino Perez].

“When he came with [Arjen] Robben, he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team.

“[Gonzalo] Higuain was sold and he didn’t like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let [Mesut] Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel Di Maria this summer.”
