Ronaldo and Mourinho linked with Man Utd move

Cristiano Ronaldo could be set for a return to Manchester United after rejecting the offer of a new contract at Real Madrid, and the Portugal winger could be joined by the Madrid Coach, Jose Mourinho, if this season proves to be the last for Sir Alex Ferguson, the Daily Mirror has reported.

The newspaper claims Ferguson could step down at the end of the current campaign, having been in charge at Old Trafford since 1986. Ferguson turns 71 at the end of December and, if he does retire, the United board are considering an approach for former Chelsea manager Mourinho. The Portuguese is also on the short list of Paris Saint-Germain, as is ex-United player Ronaldo.

Ronaldo is said to be disillusioned with life in Madrid, feeling he has lacked support from the club’s hierarchy and that he has not been shown the respect his goal scoring record deserves, a sentiment backed up by Ronaldo’s old United teammate, Patrice Evra, who is understood to have kept in touch with the 27-year-old.

Having publically revealed in September that he was “sad”, Ronaldo and his representatives do not feel the situation has improved to his satisfaction and could seek to leave Spain at the end of the season. PSG and Manchester City are monitoring the situation, but Ronaldo would be open to a return to United, having spent six years at the club between 2003 and 2009.
