Reports: Jose Mourinho Gives Thumbs Up On Cristiano Ronaldo Return
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly given his permission for the Red Devils to try and take Cristiano Ronaldo back to England.
According to La Sexta, the Portuguese manager has told United to try their best to lure the 32-year-old back to the club.
Recent rumours suggest that Ronaldo is unhappy at Real Madrid, and is looking to move back to his former club, for whom he played for between 2003 and 2009.
The superstar is reportedly furious that Los Blancos have not offered him a new deal in Spain, amid the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar getting massive new contracts at their respective clubs.
United are, however, reportedly close to signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, and might not have the funds to accommodate Ronaldo.
The player has been linked with a return to Old Trafford several times since his former world record move to Spain, a situation fans are used to seeing be resolved.
A big factor for Ronaldo's reported unhappiness could be his and Real's current form – the Spanish side are currently 19 points behind leaders FC Barcelona in LaLiga.
