Former Real Madrid President: This Man Could Help Seal Cristiano Ronaldo's Old Trafford Return
Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes there is one man who could help take Cristiano Ronaldo back to Manchester United.
The Portugal captain reportedly wants to leave Spain in the upcoming window as he has had enough of how a section of Los Blancos supporters have treated him, and was also accused of alleged tax fraud by the Spanish public prosecutor last week.
Calderon was the president of the Spanish giants when they signed Ronaldo in 2009, and he has revealed that the player's relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson could be key to his possible return to Old Trafford.
"He delayed his move to Madrid for a year because Ferguson was like a father to him," Calderon told BBC Radio 5 Live.
"He loved the club, the fans, the city, and I don't rule out a move back.
"Very few clubs can meet his expectations. Not because they can't pay the money but because they need to offer him the possibility of winning titles and personal awards.
"The relationship in Madrid wasn't the best but that doesn't mean he doesn't want to go back to Manchester, where he is very grateful of what happened.
"I am sure he will stay in Europe. I don't see him playing in China or the Middle East. He is not that type of player. He has three or four more years to be a top, top player and he would like to keep winning titles, anywhere he goes."
Ronaldo is currently with the Portuguese national team at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.
