A number of reports in recent months have suggested that the 30-year-old Portuguese international could leave the Bernabeu at the end of the current campaign and this has led to speculation of a possible return to Old Trafford whilst Ligue 1 side PSG are also said to be a viable alternative.
Ronaldo has been an astonishing success since leaving Man United for the Spanish capital in 2009 and his tally of 321 goals in 307 appearances is unparalleled in the modern era.
However it is worth noting that whilst Cristiano Ronaldo has proven a bid success on an individual basis it’s fair to say that Real Madrid haven’t secured all that much by way of silverware over the course of the superstar’s time at the Bernabeu.
In his six completed seasons in Spain, Real Madrid have one just one La Liga title, that’s less than the number of domestic titles the club managed in the previous six campaigns.
Though Real Madrid did of course secure a tenth European Cup/Champions League triumph in 2013/14 the La Liga side failed to reach the final in any of the other five seasons Ronaldo has been at the club, a record far below that of arch rivals Barcelona.
Therefore Ronaldo may feel that it’s time for a new challenge, a feeling that would surely only grow should Real Madrid fail to win major silverware in 2015/16 under new boss Rafa Benitez.
Man United are ready to offer Ronaldo a contract worth a massive £14.7m a season and hope such a salary would tempt the two time Ballon d’Or winner into an emotional return to the Premier League side.
