Cristiano Ronaldo Set For Old Trafford Return Following Friendly Confirmation

Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to be returning to Old Trafford next month following the confirmation of a friendly at the ground between Argentina and Portugal.

The international clash will take place on 18th November and see a number of stars lock horns at the Theatre of Dreams.

Argentina, who reached the World Cup final in the summer, should have Manchester United stars Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo on display, while Barcelona icon Lionel Messi could feature.

Portugal‘s star man meanwhile will undoubtedly be former Manchester United forward Ronaldo.

An Old Trafford Return?

He is the world best player and one of the greatest players in history. Cristiano Ronaldo has done it all. Three Premier League titles, one La Liga, one FA Cup, two Copa del Rey’s, two Champions League’s and two World Players of the Year titles.

Ronaldo is revered at both Manchester United and Real Madrid, who he has both done so much for, and recently the Portuguese midfielder has set fires by blazing by talking about his love for Manchester United and refused to rule out a move back to Old Trafford.

The recent statement from the 29-year-old has sent online bookmakers into overdrive, with many putting Ronaldo at incredibly small odds to return to Manchester United in the not so distance. Ronaldo’s favourite online casino has him practically at evens to return to the club.

So will we see Ronaldo back in the Premier League?

Well the first thing to consider is cost. Madrid signed him for a then world record £80million and they would be hoping to recoup a significant proportion of that back. As with anything a cost-benefit-analysis will have to be undertaken. Ronaldo would be 30-years-old when United could even fathom making a move. Is £70m for an aging player worth the money? In the case of most players no, but Ronaldo is not most players, he is in the uppermost echelons of football greatness and will still be for the next six years. So for United you wouldn’t think money would be too much of a stumbling block,

Then there is Louis van Gaal. The new Manchester United manager is known for his youthful approach. At Ajax he won the Champions League with a team of youngsters, he brought youth players into the Barcelona set up and the current Bayern Munich side owes thanks to Van Gaal, who amongst other gave Thomas Muller his start, while his youthful Holland side excited at the recent World Cup. Would Van Gaal, a man known for stubbornness, change his mantra of youth and take Ronaldo? Although he has made his name for bringing through youngsters Van Gaal has always incorporated veterans in his side, and what better example could you have for a young player than Ronaldo?

Ronaldo is viewed with the same admiration that United hold fans George Best and Eric Cantona and they would welcome him back to the club with glee, and with Ronaldo finally winning the Champions League with his beloved Real he may want to return to the cooler climes of Britain.

A disastrous season with Real could open negotiations with the Red Devils. Or perhaps an argument with Carlo Ancelotti will push him back into the arms of Old Trafford who you believe will move heaven and earth if they thought they had just one shot at bringing him back to Manchester.

If Ronaldo does not move back to Old Trafford in the next to season will the ship have sailed? If so, United should seek to actively, but secretively, make inroads for their former number seven.

”This was not a friendly,” Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said. ”I had the feeling Real Madrid didn’t want to lose. I think that’s why he brought Ronaldo into the game.”

When Real Madrid announced its roster for the 2014 International Champions CupRonaldo wasn’t even on it after suffering a knee injury playing for Portugal in the 2014 World Cup.

On July 24, the club added FIFA‘s reigning Ballon D’or Award winner on to the roster. He flew to the United States the morning of Real Madrid’s opening match of the tournament against Inter Milan.

He held individual practice sessions throughout the week, including one when Real Madrid practiced at Eastern Michigan University’s Scicluna Field.

Why Cristiano Ronaldo Will End Up in Manchester

 

TITLE: Why Cristiano Ronaldo will end up in Manchester

Cristiano Ronaldo has two more years left to run on his current Real Madrid contract and he’s giving away no secrets as to his next move, as he decides where he wants to win his next selection of football trophies.

If he desires a move away from Real Madrid this summer then there are only two countries that he can possibly end up in; England and France.

England means a possible return to Manchester United, which is where Ronaldo spent the early part of his career and where he still has a lot of friends, despite the fact he just scored twice against the club in the Champions League last 16 tie.

It’s also the club managed by someone he has described as a father figure in football, Sir Alex Ferguson.

There are no grudges there, no bad feeling which means Ronaldo would be happy to work with Ferguson again if he became available and if United managed to pull off a deal to sign him.

There is also the option for him to sign for Manchester City as they could afford him, but that seems unlikely considering the respect he has for United as a club and for their supporters.

The other option is France and Paris Saint-Germain, possibly one of the only clubs in the world who could afford him.

It’s a move that would appeal to Ronaldo because of two things; the chance to play football in a different country and the chance to work under a new manager.

The football side of the move is something which may put him off because of the fact Ligue 1 football is generally of a lower quality than in the Premier League or La Liga.

However, the chance to work with Carlo Ancelotti is interesting because Ancelotti has shown great skill in handling the presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and other high profile stars at the French club.

He’s also recently been described as the club’s owners as the best manager in the world.

It’s possible but it’s not likely while a return route to Manchester could be on the cards, which Ronaldo is always going to pick over anything else.

When Cristiano Ronaldo was a Manchester United player, he was often tipped by the majority of football fans as the Red Devils’ number one player.

Ronaldo became Manchester United’s top scorer for three seasons on the trot until he left England. Now it’s Wayne Rooney who deservedly carries this title.

Speaking to News of the World in an exclusive interview, Cristiano Ronaldo talked about his connection with Rooney and the rest of Manchester United players.

The current Real Madrid superstar affirmed:

“I still speak to Wayne. When I have the opportunity, I speak with him… with Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra…”

“We talk about football and everything.”

Singling out Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo commented on the English man’s form:

“Wayne has scored a lot of goals and he is the man at Manchester United at the moment.

“I’m really, really happy for him because he has deserved it, because he has worked for it.”

Some people suggest that Rooney is only starting to show up his influence since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

But CR9 has other views:

”He is a fantastic player, but it’s not because I left the club that he is doing well. He has always done well.”

Real Madrid Player Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United Return Is Possible

Cristiano Ronaldo may be a happy player and a happy man at Real Madrid but in an exclusive interview with the News of the World, the 25-year-old revealed an important statement.

The Portuguese football star, who spent six years at Manchester United before switching to Real Madrid in Spain declared that a return to Old Trafford was not an impossible option.

Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly used to moan about Manchester’s rainy weather and dream about Madrid’s sun and beach during his time in England.

The football superstar might have been relieved when leaving the Red Devils for that purpose.

However, this doesn’t mean that Manchester United is a forgotten place in his heart.

“Of course, I miss playing for Manchester United,” Cristiano Ronaldo avowed.

“Not just the club, but my friends are still there too. I played for six years; and that’s a long time. Whenever I have the opportunity, I watch them play.”

Cristiano Ronaldo pursued:

“I’m still interested in watching Manchester United… and you never know, maybe in the future, I could return to play there. It’s always possible.”

Real Madrid’s football club and fans may not be that happy to hear these statements from Cristiano Ronaldo. But the Portugal captain immediately ruled out any prospective doubts over his devotion for the Spanish giants. He stated:

“I won’t say I’m not happy here, at Real Madrid. I’m really happy and everyone knows this is my club. But of course, I miss Manchester United, the boss, the players, because I left family there.

“I want to fulfill my contract here. But in the future, only God knows.”

Can you see Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid and going back to Manchester United in the near future?

Cristiano Ronaldo: I Miss Manchester United But I Want To Overcome Barcelona!

CR7 - CR9 Which is which?How hard it could it feel to leave something, somewhere, someone or people that you’ve known and loved for six years? How sweet could it be to fulfill your childhood dream? How great would it be to conquer your rivals?

On Monday evening, Cristiano Ronaldo somehow gave an answer to all of these three questions as he talked about Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo was asked about his former club, Manchester United, and its current position in the league. The Red Devils lost 3-0 away to Fulham last weekend to record their second straight loss in the English Premier League and their fifth defeat in the entire campaign so far.

Manchester United’s recent troubles have raised doubts over their ability to keep hold of the English Premier League title once again. However, former Manchester United number 7, Cristiano Ronaldo, shared other ideas.

He told the press:

“I think that Manchester United are doing great this season. They’ve lost their last two games, but they are still second in the league.”

Then speaking about the majority of the people’s negative view concerning his world record € 94 million switch from Manchester United to Spanish giants Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo said:

“What people think about me is their opinion. Really, I miss Manchester United a little bit because I played there for six years and because I left a few friends there… so I miss the club [Manchester United] a little bit,” he said before continuing at the pleasure of the Real Madrid family:

“But now I am focused at Real Madrid and I am really, really happy here.”

Despite suffering a big blow late in September through injury, Cristiano Ronaldo continues to mesmerize Real Madrid fans. However, he is aware that his pace, tricks, flicks, and goals would only be memorized if he wins trophies with and for Los Blancos.

Speaking about Real Madrid’s rivals Barcelona, Cristiano Ronaldo avowed:

“Barcelona have won everything this year, so they have to be the best club at the moment.

“Barcelona have a style of play and players who’ve been playing together for many years. Therefore, they are an outstanding team.”

He quickly pursued:

“But we’ll do our best at Real Madrid to win La Liga and the Champions League. It will be difficult but in football, everything is possible if you work hard and if you dedicated yourself to that challenge.”

Aston Villa Say That Shocked Manchester United Miss Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United miss Cristiano RonaldoClaims that Manchester United miss the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo since the Portuguese star winger left for Real Madrid have revived again.

Did anyone hear about Manchester United’s shocking defeat at Old Trafford against Aston Villa last Saturday in the English Premier League?

The last time that Manchester United played against Aston Villa, Cristiano Ronaldo injected much of his star-studded influence.

The former number 7 Red Devil fired Manchester United in front with an excellent free-kick inside the penalty box in the first period.

After the break, Aston Villa found themselves 2-1 up but Cristiano Ronaldo’s low drive strike earned Ferguson’s side a vital equalizer.
Manchester United finally won 3-2 on that day as debutant Macheda lashed in the winner in injury time.

Last week though, there was nothing of this kind. Wayne Rooney worked out all of his abilities but was astonishingly denied by the crossbar at a point in the game. Dimitar Berbatov wasted the simplest opportunity when he misfired the ball in front of an empty net.

Well in the end, Gabriel Agbonlahor’s first half header proved enough to hand Manchester United their first home defeat against Aston Villa since 1983.

After shocking the Red Devils, Aston Villa’s Richard Dunne added more fuel to Sir Alex Ferguson’s anger. The former Manchester City defender declared:

“It’s going to count for any team, losing a player like Ronaldo.

“[Manchester] United created a lot of chances and they dominated us for periods. But Brad Friedel wasn’t too busy,” Dunne stated just to underline the fact that Manchester United miss the attacking abilities of Cristiano Ronaldo.

There is a big majority of people who think that no player is bigger than a club and that Sir Alex Ferguson is wise enough to fill the hole that Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure created.
However, so many believe that the Red Devils miss the dazzling fire of the Portugal captain.
