Video: Celebrity Man United fan begs Ronaldo to return during Ballon d’Or ceremony

Posted by

Celebrity Manchester United fan James Nesbitt did his best to talk Cristiano Ronaldo into making the switch back to Manchester United during this year’s Ballon d’Or ceremony, not so subtly hinting that the Portuguese superstar should see out the remaining years of his career back at Old Trafford.

It’s a sentiment shared by many Man United fans, and is a story that continuously does the rounds in the rumour mill. Whether or not it will ever actually happen is an entirely different story, but for the moment the dream is alive and kicking for Red Devils fans.

Ronaldo is unlikely to take career advice from Nesbitt, but that didn’t stop the actor and Ballon d’Or co-host from trying his hardest to lure him back to the Premier League.

Check out the clip below:

The Ballon d’Or winner enjoyed a fantastic spell at United during the early stages of his career, but always looked destined for a switch to Real Madrid. He was the definition of Galactico, and has become synonymous with Los Blancos during his time in the Spanish capital.

He may be heading into the twilight of his career soon however, and only has so much time left at a club the size of Madrid. He would unquestionably be welcomed with open arms back at Old Trafford, but would he be interested in a return to the Premier League?
