Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are left fuming after the Daily Mirror revealed that Louis van Gaal turned down the opportunity to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford from Real Madrid.
There was a lot of speculation circling in the Tavern during the summer that the Portuguese superstar would return to the Premier League.
This led to United fans begging for his return as they suffered heavily from a miserable season under David Moyes.
And after coming to terms with the idea any immediate return to Manchester would be unlikely, Spanish journalist, Alfredo Duro, has said that van Gaal rejected the opportunity, which has not gone down too well in the Transfer Tavern.
Duro claimed that Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, met up with the Red Devils’ chief scout Martin Ferguson in the summer.
But when Ferguson informed van Gaal of the possibility of signing the club’s former star, it was dismissed straight away.
