“I’d love to see him at Manchester United”: Ferdinand wants Ronaldo to return

Date Posted,June 22, 2017

Rio Ferdinand has spoken of his admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo and revealed he would love to see the Real Madrid star return to Old Trafford.

The 32-year-old has thrown his future into doubt by telling Los Blancos chiefs he wants to quit the club amid accusations he has evaded tax.

If the Portugal international were to leave Madrid, Manchester United is seen as his most likely destination, a motion backed by former teammate Ferdinand.

The former England centre-back enjoyed six seasons with Ronaldo at Old Trafford, winning three Premier League titles and one Champions League in that time.

Speaking on the possible move, Ferdinand said: “If Cristiano Ronaldo becomes available then the best clubs in the world will be queuing up to sign him. But I still feel Real Madrid hold all the cards, it will be down to them.

“Obviously as a Man United fan I’d love to see him go to Man United.

“It’s fairy tale stuff. This is fans dreaming, fans were brought up being allowed to dream.

“He’s the best player on the planet at the moment, he’s probably going to win the Ballon d’Or again, he won the league and the Champions League – who wouldn’t want that?”
