Manchester United star Angel Di Maria has explained that he does not believe Cristiano Ronaldo will be returning to Manchester United at any point in the future, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has also spoken to the press, telling them that he believes Ronaldo will end his career with Real Madrid, where he has firmly established himself as one of the best players in the world, and of all time.
Man Utd attempted to bring Ronaldo back to the club last summer, and there was a belief that they might be able to tempt him into returning to the Premier League at some point in the near future.
Di Maria and Ronaldo were both close during their time at Real, and he also believes that there is little chance of the Portuguese international returning to his former stomping ground, whether in this transfer window or the summer.
“I don’t think he is coming back to Manchester,” said the Argentinian winger.
“It’s hard to quit Real Madrid.
“I think he’s having a great time and I don’t see that he wants to change.”
Mendes also denied the possibility, saying: “I got to know him when he was 15 years old, from then until now we’ve spoken together on most days. When I’m in Madrid we always meet up, our relationship is more like a friendship.
“I believe that Cristiano will finish his career at Real Madrid. He’s happy at the club and is still keen to achieve more success in Madrid.”
