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.”
