Jose Mourinho Comments On 'Cristiano Ronaldo To Manchester United' Rumours
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has commented on rumours linking Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo with a return to Old Trafford.
The Portuguese tactician was recently linked with a move for his countryman, who is understood to be unhappy at Los Blancos' refusal to offer him a new and improved contract.
However, Mourinho believes Real are the only club for the 32-year-old, who left United to join the Madrid club for €94 million (R1.39 billion) in 2009.
"I think with the moment Real Madrid is having now, I think I should be the last one to add some fuel to the fire," Mourinho said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
"Madrid is on fire, the results are not good and it's a club where I worked three years, I care about the club, and I am the last one to add fire.
"So, to put some water on the fire, Cristiano is the kind of player every manager and club wants, but he is a player for (Zinedine) Zidane and Real Madrid, that's my feeling."
Ronaldo has scored 424 goals and assisted another 128 strikes in 419 appearances for Real, but this season he has somewhat struggled – especially in the league, having scored only six LaLiga goals in 15 games so far.
