Cristiano Ronaldo pours cold water on talk of return to Old Trafford.
Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed talk of him returning to Manchester United according to talkSPORT.
The Portuguese international joined Real Madrid in 2009 for a world record £80 million but there has been speculation in recent months that the player could leave the club.
There is reported to be significant dressing room unrest at the club, with many of the senior players apparently unhappy with the methods of former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho has also lost the support of the fans at the Bernabeu following his decision to drop fan-favourite Iker Casillas.
Ronaldo was also involved in some cryptic messages to the press at the start of the season that seemed to hint at the player feeling unappreciated at the Spanish giants.
When Ronaldo recently spoke of how he misses his former club, that sparked rumour of a double move for both Ronaldo and Mourinho to Old Trafford come the end of the season.
That has been rubbished by the player who said ‘I want to see out my contract at Real Madrid. I’m very clear about that. After that, well I don’t know what will happen in the future’.
Fans of the Old Trafford club are said to be willing to welcome back Ronaldo with open arms were he to make a return. He netted 118 times in 292 during his spell at Manchester, including 42 goals in 49 games during a prolific season in 2007/08.
