Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is still dreaming of bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford, according to reports.
Manchester Evening News claim that should Real Madrid ever show that they would be prepared to sell the 32-year-old, Manchester United would be willing to pay ‘whatever it takes’ to re-sign their former star.
The report also went on suggesting that Woodward is ‘dreaming’ of securing the transfer and has been given hope during his time at Old Trafford that a deal could happen.
However, such a move is unlikely now, given how influential Cristiano Ronaldo still is at Santigao Bernabeu.
The Portuguese here has bagged consecutive hat-tricks in the Champions League to relegate Bayern Munich out of the competition, and given the European reigning champions advantage over Atletico Madrid ahead of their semi-final second leg next week.
The former Manchester United man signed a new contract with Madrid in November, which will keep him at the club until he is 36.
Ronaldo’s future with Los Blancos has been called into question this season as he has been on the receiving end of jeers from jeers from the supporters at the Santiago Bernabeu.
On two separate occasions, Ronaldo has urged fans to stop whistling him, the latest coming after his treble in the 3-0 win over Atletico on Tuesday evening.
‘I repeat once, I just want you not to whistle me,’ he said.
‘I’ll try to give the best as always.’
