Cristiano Ronaldo - Legendary moves:
Solskjaer and Ronaldo...
Recently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United's manager, was asked about who he would want to bring to his team if he was given the chance. He mainly talked about still having a room for former United captain Keane and Paul Scholes.
Solskjaer said he still would be sneaking Paul Scholes through the back door, but he then said it would be unfair. He said, "That's not fair that's very unfair. I can only have one? I would probably pick… can I pick two? They didn't even play the final [against Bayern Munich]. Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. I think I would pick those two. It's unfair to Cristiano Ronaldo who is the best player in the world, of course. I played with him so I would like to have him in my team as well but Keane and Scholes, what an unbelievable midfield".
Still, this means that Solskjaer would welcome Ronaldo to the team if given the chance. This has been quite a topic recently as there are rumors that Juventus will have to release Ronaldo due to budget cuts and the Portuguese star may join the Reds once again.
Recently, Ronaldo also posted a picture of him wearing a Reds uniform, reminiscing their Champions League victory in 2008. This just proves that the club has a special place in his heart. When he was once asked about returning to the club, he seems alright with it. He only said that nothing is impossible. In a 2014 interview about this, he said, "I love Manchester, to be back, I never know, you never know."
Former teammates' opinion
Now, his career with Manchester United has been a bright one and we could say that this was when his career really started to take off. He spent six years at the Old Trafford before transferring to Real Madrid. For some, this transfer wasn’t really a shock and recently, former Manchester United teammate Nani said that Ronaldo has been vocal about only spending around 6 to seven years in the club.
Nani said, “Some days he [Ronaldo] was telling us openly "I'm here six or seven years now, I think it's enough for me", he said that a couple of times. But it was always "I will see, I will see, I will see" but we never thought it [Real Madrid move] would happen so fast. After we won the league in the second year he left, he produced a great season so we were still surprised."
It has also been reported that there would have been a chance that Ronaldo would come back to the club in 2013. However, the retirement of Ferguson made this impossible to happen. United legend Patrice Evra talked about this in a United podcast.
Evra said Ferguson's retirement could be the hardest part of his career. He said, "Two weeks before that, I remember there was a lot of media saying Ferguson will maybe retire next year, and he said, "Patrice, I will never retire. I will be here another 10 years." He then said: "My target is I'm 99 percent sure we will have Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. I just need these two players to win the Champions League again. Ninety-nine percent. And to be fair, when I speak with Cristiano, I ask him and he said yes to the boss, and was coming to join United. He told me this.”
Overall, it just doesn’t appear impossible for the man to be wearing a Reds uniform once again. This is knowing the fact that he does have a soft spot for the club. Real Madrid was a dream for him, but we all know things didn't exactly end nicely between him and the club. If ever Ronaldo goes back to the Old Trafford, fans are saying that they would gladly welcome him.
