Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are burning the ears of our waitresses this evening by excitedly informing them of news they’ve hard too many times before- but this time it seems it may genuinely happen.
Since making the switch from the Premier League to La Liga, Ronaldo has consistently been linked with a return to United. Whilst that’s been a dream in the past, it’s slowly becoming a reality as links between the two parties intensify.
Despite a return still being two years away, it would be a significant deal for the Red Devils as their marketing aspects would be boosted significantly by the sales of shirts with his number on- and there’s no worry that Ronaldo will have lost his goal-scoring touch by then.
Our landlord still isn’t convinced though, as he believes Ronaldo could end up being the latest megastar to move to the MLS- especially as the Portuguese icon’s deal with Madrid conveniently expires at the same that David Beckham’s franchise across the pond begins.
United fans, would you want a 33-year-old Ronaldo back at Old Trafford? Let us know in the comments below!
