A Returning Ronaldo?

A Returning Ronaldo?

One item we didn`t feature yesterday but one we`d like a response on today, relates to a certain Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, as we`re all perfectly aware, was sold to Real Madrid for a colossal fee awhile ago and has continued to show-case his attributes in La Liga.

The fee we sold him, rumoured to be £80 million, was too good to turn down and United, considering the players desire to test his skills elsewhere, was sold.

But, amongst the many rumours relating to United that reach our doorstep, was one that inferred that Ronaldo hasn`t ruled out returning to Old Trafford one day.

Now whilst being, to a certain extent, delighted at the thought of his return (one-day), I have to say I`m a little perplexed as to how it might come about.

If Ronaldo were to return, in the next three of four years, his fee would be on the high side and could probably only be afforded if the debt has been serviced and a stock market flotation has generated huge revenue. In other words, so many ifs and buts!

In the other hand, if Ronaldo were to return at the tail end of his career, you have to ask yourself would the move be purely for sentimental reasons. If so, would his abilities still be good enough for him to hold down a regular place in the first eleven. I`d suggest if not then a return wouldn`t be on the cards.

But it is definitely something to mull over though, is it not?

I would love to have Ronaldo back at United but it won't happen, we've moved on. I think moving to Madrid was a bad move career wise. Lets be honest he will never again reach the heights that he did at Man U. Not to take anything from Madrid because they've got a great side but lets face it, they've underachieved for quite some time now both domestically and in Europe and with Barca as they are one would think they will underachieve for the forseeable future. Footballing-wise with Mourinho at the helm I don't think Ronaldo will ever really play the football he wants and it wasn't too long ago he was getting frustrated with the lack of attacking prowess and hunger his team showed. Madrids 'Galacticos' A.K.A over-paid, expensive, prima-donna flops has been living in the past for far too long. I understand it was his dream to play for Madrid but I wonder if that dream is soon becoming a nightmare.
