Manchester United unlikely to bring legend back to England

It is his last chance for a big moveManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are gutted that one of their all-time favourite players looks unlikely to return to Old Trafford before hanging up his boots.

They’d hoped that Cristiano Ronaldo, who starred for the Red Devils from 2003-2009, would return from Real Madrid one day to create more memories at United.

However, those dreams appear to have been shattered by Ronaldo himself as he stated his intentions to finish his career at ‘the best club in the world‘- a statement that provides more hurt to United fans surrounding the bar.

Speaking to Marca, he issued his belief that he still has five or six more years at the highest level before he called time on an illustrious career.

“I am 30 and I want to play five or six more years, and in that time I want to do things right and maintain the level of recent seasons.”

“I want to win and I’m at the best club in the world. Obviously I have a contract up to 33, and as I have said many times my dream was to finish here at Real Madrid, because I feel good, I feel useful, and I want to continue.”

Ronaldo is just one-goal away from becoming Real Madrid’s all-time goalscorer, moving ahead of former Spanish international Raul, which would give the Portuguese maestro another impressive accolade.

Manchester United fans, is there any chance Ronaldo could return to play for your club? Let us know in the comments below!
