Manchester United have been spending big since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson to reach the pinnacles of world football but so far has been unsuccessful. They do not look to stop however and want to bring the glory years back at Old Trafford by signing Cristiano Ronaldo next summer.
Ronaldo himself may have given United a huge hint after the Real Madrid forward has put his Madrid house for sale.
Ronaldo is not playing at his best this season and rumors suggest that the Portuguese wants out of his current club. With Manchester United always on the lookout for an opportunity to bring their prodigal son back to Old Trafford, this might be their perfect chance, as reported by Mirror.
Despite making some expensive transfers over the course of two seasons United has been under Louis Van Gaal, the Manchester based club has yielded poor results in return for their investments. Speculations are ripe that Van Gaal will be let go at the end of the current season with former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho being asked to take over the reins of the 20-time English Premier League champions.
Ronaldo had some of his best footballing displays under Mourinho and won’t mind reuniting with his country man for another memory with the club that gave him fame.
Manchester United also have an interest in signing the Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic next season. Despite the Swedish being linked to a host of Premier League clubs, the arrival of Mourinho at Old Trafford will likely convince Ibrahimovic to choose United over any other club.
“Jose Mourinho is a big star. The first time he met my partner Helena, he whispered to her: ‘Helena, you have only one mission: feed Zlatan, let him sleep, keep him happy.’” Ibrahimovic wrote in his autobiography, as reported by Manchester Evening News.
Zlatan’s agent Mino Raiola also confirmed that United were one of the clubs from the Premier League who were interested in signing his client. He stressed on the fact that the current PSG striker’s next destination could very well be the Premier League.
