StoryJose Mourinho admits he would be interested in re-signing Ronaldo

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he would be open to the possibility of re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo in the future. However, he does not believe Real Madrid would consider the option of selling him to another European club and the Portuguese may perhaps end his career in the MLS.

Speaking to Portuguese outlet Record, he said: “I consider that Real Madrid cannot sell, they can't. It's prohibitive. He has to stay until the time when they authorise him to go and play one year to America or any other place where he wants to go. The door is closed. That is the impression I have. Everyone knows his history at Manchester, the passion they have for him, and that there are players in the world who, if clubs have the possibility of signing, will not say no.”
Since leaving United in the summer of 2009, Ronaldo has on multiple occasions been linked with a return to Old Trafford, only for him to commit his future to the European champions. The Portuguese now needs one more goal to attain an astonishing tally of 450 goals for Los Blancos and he has a good chance of reaching this feat before the close of the campaign.

Los Blancos end their league season with a game against Villarreal and manager Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that he would be playing a full-strength squad regardless of the Champions League final to follow. The Capital outfit were at one stage looking at the prospect of finishing fourth or below in the standings but the form of Ronaldo in the second half of the season sees them with the chance of finishing second, should Atletico Madrid lose their home meeting against Eibar. Following this, Real Madrid have a Champions League final showdown against Liverpool on May 26, where they will be eyeing a third straight European crown.
