What Cristiano Ronaldo’s new deal means for Manchester United
Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a new deal at Real Madrid, virtually ending Manchester United’s hope of signing their former fan-favourite.
Ronaldo, 28, has been at Real Madrid since his, at the time, world record move from Manchester United in 2009. The Portuguese superstar had previously been heavily linked with a move back to Manchester United, but those hopes have been dashed.
“Everyone knows that I was very happy at Manchester United for six years and it was a club that gave me everything. I am, and always will be, grateful but Manchester United is my past, Real Madrid is my present. My home is here, my family and I am very happy,”
Prior to Gareth Bale’s move to the Bernabeu, it had appeared that Ronaldo was angling for a new contract. Perhaps he was. Nevertheless, Ronaldo has a contract until June 2018 & Manchester United may never see their former #7 back in red.
