Van Gaal admits Ronaldo interest

Ronnie return?

Ronnie return?

In today’s press conference Louis Van Gaal confirmed that United would be happy to have Cristiano Ronaldo back at the club.

Though he remained coy on whether there would be an attempt to bring the Real Madrid forward to Old Trafford. The manager conceded that Ronaldo is the type of player he would want in his team.

When asked whether United would want to sign the Portuguese international he responded, “Yes”. On a potential move Van Gaal said, “Like Falcao, players like Ronaldo bring something extra to a team”. The boss however went on to claim that he doesn’t think, “They [Real Madrid] will sell him”.

These comments coming after what Spanish correspondent Guillem Ballague claimed last week could well be the beginning of next summer’s transfer saga.

Whether or not a potential move is really on the cards is yet to be seen, but there is definitely some legitimacy in the story.
