Fans will get to see their hero back at Old Trafford as Cristiano Ronaldo is set for return to his former home this January…
Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo could return to Manchester United this January, but not in the way most United fans will be hoping.
Manchester United News: All the latest news on Manchester United.
Angel di Maria Manchester United: Angel di Maria has been named the Manchester United Player of the Month.
Liverpool Sign New Gerrard: Liverpool have beaten Manchester United to the signing of new Steven Gerrard.
Old Trafford will be hosting a friendly between Portugal and Argentina, which will presumably see the former Red Devil return to his old stomping ground, reports the Telegraph.
Ronaldo has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League club recently, although even the most optimistic fan probably wouldn’t have believed it would happen as soon as the winter transfer window.
Fans will have to settle for seeing their idol in an international friendly instead, with the match being billed as a clash of the world’s greatest players: Cristiano Ronaldo v Lionel Messi.
Although not confirmed yet, it seems only a matter of time before it’s finalised and the Madrid forward makes his return.
His only previous visit to Old Trafford since his then record £80m departure in 2009 was for a Champions League meeting between Los Blancos and United.
The Portuguese winger even scored as they knocked his former club out of the competition.
