Despite Sir Alex Ferguson’s claims yesterday that it would be difficult to get Cristiano Ronaldo back at Manchester United, Anderson has today revealed that Ronaldo still loves the club and could return one day.

“Ronaldo is an exceptional person and fantastic player,” he sad. “He was able to win everything at United. He was attracted to Real Madrid but this doesn’t mean that one day he will not be able to return. He likes the football in the Premier League. He likes this football club and you never know, he might come back one day. I think so. He loved United and still loves them. Anything can happen. You never know.”
