Following Real Madrid’s Champions League win over Liverpool on Saturday, Ronaldo dropped his biggest hint yet that he could be leaving the La Liga giants in a post-match interview.
The Metro has since reported that Ronaldo’s fellow Madrid teammates have been irritated with his over the saga.
Ronaldo is linked with a return to Old Trafford every summer, so these stories shouldn’t come as a surprise.
But now his mum has added fuel to the fire by suggesting that she would prefer her son to move to United rather than the likes of Paris Saint-Germain if he was to leave Real Madrid.
Interestingly, we ran a poll with 1,422 votes on Twitter this week asking United fans would they rather signing Ronaldo or Gareth Bale, and a whopping 79% voted for the latter. No way would that have been the case a year or two ago.
You can sign one of the following players for @ManUtd this summer. Who do you pick?

Moreover, Dolores Aveiro spoke to SFR Sport where she indicated that a move to United is far preferable for her than a move to the Ligue 1 champions.
“I would not mind if my son signed a contract with PSG, even if, to be honest, I’d rather go back to playing for Manchester United.”
