Manchester United coach, Louis Van Gaal has confirmed that his interest in re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese has been strongly linked with an exit from the Santiago Bernabue at the end of the season and United has been mentioned as a possible destination.
Paris St. German seems to be the bookmakers favourite to sign the world player of the year but United boss has confirmed his interest. Ronaldo is loved and adored at Old Trafford during and after his spell with United, the Old Trafford fans would be absolutely delighted to have the player back in their fold but it seems unlikely.
Ronaldo is a special breed, he is driven by challenges all through his career, and He won the Premier league, the UEFA Champions league, the Carling Cup (now called Capital one cup), the World Club cup, the Professional footballers Award and top scorer in England during his spell at United. There is nothing to drive him at United anymore, so a move to Paris St German would be more enticing for him.
Yes United need a player in the mode of Ronaldo, but by next summer he would be 31. United have too many old players in their ranks, Bastian Schweinsteiger , Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick are all integral members of the squad already in their 30’s, adding Ronaldo makes one wonder if the team is planning for the future.
