Manchester United’s mooted bid for Cristiano Ronaldo has received another boost, with former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon suggesting that the player has become increasingly dissolusioned with life at the Spanish giants, and that he could move back to the club where he first made his name, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Ronaldo has been linked heavily with a move back to Old Trafford in recent days, having suggested that he would like a return before his career is out, and it now seems as though his relationship with the Real hierarchy is at an all time low.
The club have sold key players, including Ronaldo’s good friend Angel Di Maria, and the president who brought the Portuguese international to the club has said that the player is possibly looking for a route out.
He said: “My impression is he is fed up with the policy of the current president.
“When he came with Robben, he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team.
“Higuain was sold and he didn’t like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel di Maria this summer.
“When I signed him in 2009, I remember he said he was grateful to Manchester United.
“He had a marvellous time there, he likes everything. It is a really great club.”
Ronaldo and Real won the Champions League together last season, but have started the new season poorly, losing two of their three league games and losing the Spanish Super Cup.
