Manchester United Prepare a Dream Return for Cristiano Ronaldo

It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep Manchester United out of the headlines in the last few days. Even before the dust has settled after Ferguson’s retirement, United are already in the headlines in trying to bring one of their former stars back to Old Trafford. It has been four years since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, but it is fair to say that the club has not forgotten the Portuguese.

Even after all these years, Ferguson has not ruled out the possibility of  Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford. It has remained as a dream transfer for many United fans until now.

According to the Daily Mail, the club has made its first serious attempt to woo back the 28-year-old, who left United for a world record £80 million transfer fee. Manchester United chief executive David Gill has apparently flown to Spain in order to hold talks with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes.

There is no doubt that Ronaldo has improved as a player after leaving Manchester United – at least on paper. He recently scored his 200th goal for Real Madrid in just four seasons, which is nothing short of outstanding.

In fact, he would have won the World Player of the Year award several times in the last few years had it not been for a certain Argentine star from Barcelona.

Ronaldo has said that he is not entirely happy at Real Madrid. Even though he continues to be linked with clubs like PSG, the entry of United in the race could significantly alter his destination.

He has only two years left on his current contract and there has been little indication from the Spanish giants that they would like to extend it. Even though Ronaldo is 28 years old, United cannot expect to sign him on the cheap. United may have debts of more than £300 million, but it does not seem to be a deterrent factor in the pursuit of Ronaldo.
