Fergie: I Hope Ronaldo Wants To Come Back To United

Whilst ruling it out as a serious possibility at the moment, Sir Alex Ferguson has suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo may one day like to return to Manchester United.

“I’d love to see that, but it’s fanciful thinking really,” he said. “First of all, how much it would take to get him from Real Madrid, and secondly, I don’t think there’s any chance they would want to sell him anyway. But you never know. I don’t know when his contract finishes. He may want to go to another club at some point in his career and I’d hope he would want to come here. But that’s a long way off.”

    Lol gotta love Sir Alex already with the mind games he knows very well Ronnie and Real are having issues.Whether there’s any truth to it i don’t know but his buyout clause is 100mill,so it’d cost Utd 100 mill and around 300k a week in wages plus bonuses

    Well, if nobody has anything to say, I would like to have him back. If Rooney likes him, that’s good enough for me

    He will never be loved at Madrid as he was in Manchester!! After all, there is no love lost between Spanish and Portuguese!

    The Petition for Ronaldo to come back starts here

  7. AlphaRS says:

    Ronnie has left. Let it go.

    I’m portuguese and I can tell you that everybody in Portugal prefer Cristiano in Manchester instead of Madrid. Spanish people can’t handle with portuguese success even more on their country. You shouldn’t really believe in every story about Cristiano and Mourinho when these come from Spain, more specifically from Marca.

    1 – You can never have too much quality in your squad.

    2 – Every employee brings positives and negatives.

    3 – Ronnie’s negatives are far outweighed by his positives. He’s not a Balotelli or a Tevez.

    4 – United don’t NEED any particular player. We are far greater than the sum of our parts. We won’t be begging any player to join us. If Ronnie wanted to come back, of course we’d welcome him, but only at the right price.

    Spot on bro!

    I especially agree on the 3rd and 4th one.

    Perhaps Morinoh is going to come along with him.

    Please come home Ronnie, we all miss you so much.
