The Portuguese star has been heavily linked with a return to Old Trafford in the last few weeks, with the player himself stating his love for the 20 time league champions.

However, despite Ronaldo’s desire for a return to Old Trafford, Balague says Real Madrid won’t consider selling their star for another two years.

He told Revista de La Liga: ”It is quite clear that Manchester United are letting all this continue because they are interested in Cristiano Ronaldo.

”Cristiano Ronaldo dreams and would like to go back to Manchester United. It’s just the timing which I think people are getting wrong.

”In two years’ time I would say yes, that is possibly the time when he will be 31 going on 32, for Real Madrid to say: ‘OK, if we can cash in on him, brilliant. He has done a lot for us, but that’s it, time to move on.”

A group of Manchester United fans arranged for an aeroplane to fly over El Madrigal during Real Madrid’s 2-0 victory over Villarreal at the weekend with a banner saying ”come home Ronaldo.”

It looks like it will take a lot more than a banner for the Portuguese international to return to his former home anytime soon.
