Ronaldo has been linked with a sensational move back to United from current side Real Madrid in recent months, despite his agent insisting the 29-year-old is likely to end his career at the Santiago Bernabeu outfit.
But despite those reports, Phelan believes Ronaldo’s pre-existing connection to United and their fans could prompt him to reconsider and weigh up a return to Old Trafford in the future.
“Ronaldo loved his time at Manchester United and, if Manchester United were interested in him again, then he would listen to that because part of his career has come through Man United,” he said.
“But listen, he is where he is because of him being Ronaldo and, at the moment, Madrid are successful so I can’t see why he would think about coming back to Manchester United now.”
