thumbnail Hello,

The Real Madrid star has reiterated his desire to return to Old Trafford and is confident Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao will help the club overcome their poor start

Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that he is keen to return to Manchester United at some point in the future.

The Portugal international enjoyed a hugely successful time at the Old Trafford side between 2003 and 2009 before leaving United for Madrid in a deal worth a then world-record £80 million.

Nevertheless, the 29-year-old has nothing but fond memories of his time at the Premier League giants and is eager to return to Manchester.

"I love Manchester. Everyone knows that - I have said it many times. Manchester is in my heart. I left many good friends there, the supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day," Ronaldo told the Daily Mail.

"I am happy here at Real Madrid and have four more years, but in the future you never know because they treated me unbelievably at United. I really did love being at Manchester United."

The prolific attacker then went on to discuss Louis van Gaal's side's difficult start to the new season and stressed that he's confident they will improve following the arrival of Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao.

He continued: "Believe me, they will be a good team again, I’m sure of it. It is a great club.

"This can happen. Bad moments and good moments. Manchester are passing through a bad moment. Last year it was a horrible season and this year they haven’t started well, either. 

"But I do think they did well to buy Di Maria and Falcao. I think the team will be much better. I want to see them better because it is such a fantastic club and they deserve to be better.

"Manchester have not started well, two points in three games, so they need quality players and Falcao is a quality player. And Di Maria, too."
