Fergie says Ronaldo is ‘unbuyable’.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says that he would love to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, but that he feels the Portuguese winger is “unbuyable”, reports the Manchester Evening News.
Ronaldo left Old Trafford in an £80m deal in 2009 after six years with Manchester United and has since scored an astonishing 165 goals in 162 appearances for the Spanish giants.
Quite understandably, Ferguson feels Ronaldo could still do a job at Man Utd, but feels the deal is not possible.
“I’d like to think it would be but I don’t think it will happen.
“You’re talking about incredible amounts of money now.
“What would you think his value would be? He’s definitely unbuyable.
“Who could afford to buy him?
“There’s talk of the Russians, perhaps. But do you think he would go to Russia?
“He complained about the weather here, let alone the middle of winter in Russia!
“He was definitely good value for Madrid but he always wanted to play for them, it was his boyhood dream.”
