The Cristiano Ronaldo to United rumours just won’t go away and no matter how much we tell ourselves it won’t happen there’s that “little boy inside” that hopes against hope that it will. Despite the protestations of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez that Ronaldo wants to sign a new deal there’s nothing definitive coming from the winger’s camp so millions – although probably not as many as a certain website claims- of Reds around the world wait with baited breath to see if one day the dream could actually become a reality.
Ronaldo has two years left on his contract the big question is “does he want to come back to United?” If Ronaldo could be possible but a lot depends on how strong the Madrid squad is which makes the latest reports very interesting.
The Telegraph notes:
José Mourinho is planning a move for Real Madrid’s Xabi Alonso as he begins his overhaul of the Chelsea squad.
The former Liverpool midfielder was highly rated by Mourinho at Real and has just one year left on his contract, having not responded to Real’s offer of a two-year extension.
Alonso is a player that can make any side tick and the chances of Madrid letting both him and Ronaldo leave the Bernabeu are practically non-existent. The former Madrid boss had a tempestuous relationship with many of his players but it appears Alonso wasn’t one of them and could relish a move back to the Premier League. Should Mourinho get his man, then Madrid may decide to keep Ronaldo regardless of the fact his contract runs out in two years- such is the financial muscle of the club they can afford to do so if they really need to. Letting Alonso go may be an option, but Ronaldo as well is a whole different matter.
