Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted he would be open to returning to his old club Manchester United at some point in the future, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The Portuguese international spent six years at Old Trafford earlier in his career, helping the club to three Premier League titles and the Champions League in his time there, where he also first established himself as one of the best players in the world.
Ronaldo later made a then-world-record £80m move to Real Madrid in 2009, and has continued to show himself to be one of the finest players of his generation with further trophy success including another Champions League triumph last season.
Although the 29-year-old has now been ruled out of his side’s friendly match against his old employers today, he spoke fondly of the Red Devils and gave a strong indication that he would be interested in playing for them again.
Ronaldo has a contract running until 2018 with Real, and it seems unlikely that they will be looking to sell him anytime soon, but he would not rule out the possibility of lining up in a red shirt again one day.
When asked whether he’d consider playing for United again, he said: “Of course, it was one of my favourite clubs, Manchester, everyone knows that every time when I speak about Real Madrid I should speak about Manchester United, I love it there.
“I was 18-years-old, I win everything there. The people treat me like a god there so I appreciate it and in the future nobody knows.”
