Why Cristiano Ronaldo Return To Manchester United Is Possible

Real Madrid’s Ronaldo has continued to get his name involved in speculations about a sensational return to Manchester United. The game between Villareal and Real Madrid witnessed a low flying aircraft carrying a tail with the wordings ‘COME HOME RONALDO, UNITED REEL’. The United Reel is a group of Manchester United supporters who are on a project of bringing Ronaldo back to Old Trafford. The group seems hell bent on making sure the project comes to light even if it means personally sourcing for the funds to make it happen. Ronaldo himself has recently reflected back on his time at Old Trafford with reports coming in that the Portuguese still has some love for United. While he is tied down to a contract with Madrid for at least two more seasons, a possible move back to England remains on the table. It all boils down to negotiations and negotiations from the parties involved. With Real Madrid insisting that their prized asset is not for sale, it is often difficult for a club to hold on to a player who has set his sights on another club.

Real Madrid bought Ronaldo from Manchester United in a then world record GBP80 million. And if there ever exist the possibility of recouping a substantial amount of that massive cost from any deal whatsoever, then Real Madrid might likely sell. With the arrival last season of Gareth Bale, another player who also broke the previous transfer record of Ronaldo, the kinglike status that is associated with being the most expensive player changed hands. And worthy to note is the fact that Bale lived up to the expectations as the Welshman enjoyed a brilliant first season in Spain, winning the Uefa Champions league while at the same time registering his name on the score sheet in the final between Real Madrid and their local rivals Athletico Madrid.

The past summer has seen the arrival of Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez from Bayern Munich and Monaco respectively. While the two might not be a sort of threat to Ronaldo’s ego, the message is actually being passed across; Real Madrid does not believe in the mantra of a tree making a forest. Ronaldo, while at Old Trafford enjoyed a princely status but his time in Real Madrid though very eventful still lacks that. And the Portuguese has continually found himself making new friendships that hardly last. Just when he though he already had a bond with Ozil, the German was sold. The recent departure of Di Maria from the Bernabeu ignited some emotions in Ronaldo. He was heard questioning the move. And there are words going around that the Portuguese talisman is seemingly getting fed up with the happenings in Spain. If you ever thought it is highly unlikely to see Ronaldo back in England, then a trip to Chelsea to watch Fabregas would clear some doubts. Or who would have thought Cesc would come back to play in England after a sojourn to his boyhood club, Barcelona?
