Cristiano Ronaldo is regularly linked with a move back to Manchester United and David Beckham has advised him to make a return to United.

Ronaldo followed in Beckham’s footsteps, wearing the number seven shirt at United before moving to the Bernabeu, and Beckham reckons he would have crawled back to United had he been given the opportunity.

I’d never advise anyone not to come back to United. I’d have crawled back if I could. But then obviously given the chance once I’d left United, to have played for one of the biggest clubs in the world – with Real Madrid, again it was a dream. But I’d never advise any player to not return to Manchester United.

Cristiano is such a fans’ favourite at United, he was so successful, such a hard worker. Everyone you talk to, that has played with him, been around his world — he’s not just one of the most talented players in the game, he’s a hard worker as well. If he decides to leave Real Madrid then for me personally it’s back to United.
