There has been a lot of talk over the past few days, weeks and months, about the possibility of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo moving back to Manchester United next season, which has got most fans extremely excited. However, at the risk of bursting that bubble, we are going to tell you why that is not going to happen next season, although we would not rule it out in the future.
Cristiano Ronaldo is considered one of the best players in the world, and also one of the greatest players to ever play the game, which he loves and strives to make sure that it does not change. Real Madrid have an extremely strong team and are one of the best sides in Europe, so why would Cristiano want to leave them and join a struggling Manchester United side.
Secondly there is the fact that, while Manchester United do seem to have a lot of money in the bank at the moment, it has been claimed that it would cost £200m to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford. That is a lot of money for any club to play for any player and, when you consider that Ronaldo turns 30 in February, it seems even more unlikely that it will happen.
Finally, there is the fact that Real Madrid have insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale at any price and will not be leaving the club. With four years still remaining on his Real Madrid contract, we cannot see Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the club for sometime yet.
Should Manchester United turn their fortunes around and return to the club that they once were, there is the possibility that we could see Cristiano Ronaldo return to club later in his career, possibly in three or four years time, when his Real Madrid contract expires. Until then though, we find it highly unlikely to happen any time soon.
