Never one to shirk away from commenting on a story, Louis Van Gaal claimed in a recent interview that the former United star is beyond even the Reds’ spending powers.
“He may come but it is not possible. Why not? Because you have the club, Ronaldo and then you have Manchester United and how much Manchester United want to spend.”
It’s not the news fans want to hear as the light of Ronaldo’s achievements at the club still burns brightly and certainly hasn’t dimmed with the many accolades and goals CR7 has secured since his move to the Bernabeu.
Maybe one day we will see Ronaldo return to the club where he truly made a name for himself, but for the time being we’ll have to settle for rumours and stories rather than facts.
