Ronaldo wants to end his career at United

The Observer today is reporting that, after Manchester United have explored the possibility of re-signing our former number 7, Cristiano Ronaldo has told the club that he is keen to end his career at Old Trafford.

Whilst the move for Ronaldo is not likely to happen until next summer, the club believes Ronaldo’s desire to return to United is genuine, even if he may commit himself in the short term to Real Madrid with a new contract.

One of the huge positives about the possibility of signing Ronaldo, even if he’s 30 or older, is that he takes such brilliant care of himself and is a total professional. You imagine that he has plenty of years in peak condition ahead of him.

From a United perspective now, whilst offering some hope for the future, it means very little. The club needed to back David Moyes by bringing in a star this summer and their failure to do that (so far) is really poor. One week to go…

    Ronaldo is using United so Real Madrid put a better contract offer on the table for him to sign. Next thing you know he’ll be saying he wants to end his career at Real Madrid. Sorry mate but since you’ve left you haven’t won much or even reached a Champions League Final since leaving United. Could have achieved so much at United had he stayed. What a waste. Don’t want a grey haired Ronaldo when he is in decline. £80,000,000 for a 29 year old Robaldo with a few years left in. No thanks.

    But only God Knows….

    My reason for comparing, emerged after I saw a few comments against the arrival of Ronnie I (had to disagree with the saying).

    Putting it down to the fact That It would hinder the development of our youngster, namely januzaj, which bollocks imo.
    In my view it would be beneficial to the youngster rather than not

    Oh for fuck sake I am bored of the fucking names we NEED to sign. Eriksson? Would offer fuck all. Lamela? Even seen him play? LIjijac. Yes probably as great as Tosic. I keep saying all these names banded about are based on footy manager. People wanted Willian. Yeah what a good egg he’s turned out to be, fucking Spurs about. Games full of tossers. Fucking Cabaye won’t even play. Disgusting. Absolute disgrace.
