Although he has insisted that he wont be moving from his current club Real Madrid, Portuguese superstar hinted that he would like a return to Manchester United late in his career.
Ronaldo had a hugely successful spell at Old Trafford before he moved to Real Madrid in 2009 for an 80-million pound deal, but it is clear he still as affection for the Red Devils.
“I love Manchester [United],” he said.
“Everyone knows that. I have said it many times.”
“Manchester is in my heart. I left many good friends there, the supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.”
“I am happy in Real Madrid and have four more years [on his contract], but in the future you never know because they treated me unbelievably there. I really did love being at Manchester United.”
Ronaldo had backed United to bounce back from a troubled spell since Sir Alex Ferguson retired as United’s manager in May 2013.
New signings Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao are among the big names of the new boys at Old Trafford this summer, and Ronaldo is certain their revival is imminent.
“Believe me, they will be a good team again, I’m sure of it. It is a great club,” he added.
“This can happen. Bad moments and good moments. Manchester is passing through a bad moment. Last year it was a horrible season and this year they haven’t started well, either.”
“I do think they did well to buy Di Maria and Falcao. I think the team will be much better. I want to see them better because it is such a fantastic club and they deserve to be better. Falcao is a very good signing. He is a very good player. He will be a fantastic buy.”
