Manchester United would have to prepare a hefty Salary package if they were to bring back their former start striker Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford.


The Portuguese international has been hinting his disappointment with Real Madrid and has constantly been linked with a move away from Bernabeu. Former Real Madrid president, Ramon Calderon has also claimed that the forward was “Fed Up” with the new policy of the current president. In this situation it has also been understood that Rooney, Angel Di Maria and Falcao at Manchester United are earning more than the Ballon D’or holder.

Ronaldo himself has hinted a possible return to Old Trafford in a recent interview, praising the management and the fans there. Mean while Chelsea has also been plotting to bring the attacker to London. Rumours suggest that if United or Chelsea would want to sign Ronaldo, they would have to pay a staggering £500,000-a –week salary to the star striker.

Ronaldo had been strongly linked with a move back to Manchester United back in 2013, but the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson and also for the fact that United were not able to meet up with the salary demanded by Ronaldo had the move scrapped off. The striker eventually signed a new deal with Real Madrid with a salary in the region of £350,000-a-week.

Goalie365 understands that Cristiano Ronaldo could still make a sensational return to Manchester United at the end of this season as the Glazers at Manchester United has opened up more with their spending power. United has spent more than £140 million in signing the likes of Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Luk Shaw.

Recent comments made by Former United player Gary Neville has just added fuel over the speculation on Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford. While speaking on Sky sports, Neville stated, “We sat here three or four months ago deliberating whether Manchester United could attract world-class talents. They've absolutely smashed that question out of the water if they get him”.

Neville further added, “There are rumours that Ronaldo is not happy in Madrid. Obviously last year they won the Champions League, so has he achieved what he wanted to achieve in Madrid? Has he done what he set out to do? That's one question.

Does he love Manchester? Does he love United? Yes, absolutely. He has talked more and more in the last 12 to 18 months about how he misses Old Trafford. The reception he got there and the way the fans reacted towards him, i've not seen that for many players. Eric Cantona and him were incredible reactions from the fans every single week.” “It was almost like an incredible belief in the stadium every time he played”.

At the end of the day, If Real Madrid does finally decide to sell Ronaldo at the end of the season, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Manchester United would be his first choice.
