MADRID (Sporting Alert) — Cristiano Ronaldo is now tired of playing in Spain and reportedly wants to leave Real Madrid and return to Manchester United in the summer.
Ronaldo left United for Madrid for a massive £80 million world record fee in 2009 and has been very productive since making the transfer move.
However, The Sun is reporting that the Portugal international wants to move back to Old Trafford to be with his former teammates and work again with former boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
It was only this week, after Real Madrid and Red Devils were drawn against each other in the Champions League last 16, Ferguson revealed that he would love to re-sign the former Man United player.
But the experienced manager admits that the Barclays Premier League leaders would find it difficult to pay the sort of transfer fee that Real would be asking for the 27-year-old.
And Ferguson is not the only one who would love to see Ronaldo back at Manchester United, with Wayne Rooney, Micheal Carrick and Patrice Evra all echoing the same sentiments.
Ronaldo has scored 170 goals from his 169 games played since joining Los Blancos, but seems to be overshadowed by arch rival Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona, who again is having yet another outstanding year.
The speedy winger has scored 126 goals from 117 Spanish La Liga games in his career, the same tally as Gento, who achieved his from 428 games.
