Angel di Maria dont want Ronaldo to move to MU
Former Real Madrid superstar Angel di Maria says that he does not expect his former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, to move to Manchester United in the future. Ronaldo has been speaking a lot about a potential return to Old Trafford where he spent seven years before moving to Madrid for a then world record transfer fee.
Even at 30 years of age, Ronaldo is expected to cost significantly more at around £ 60 million. United were reportedly ready to pay this figure for the last two transfer windows, but Ronaldo decided to extend his contract recently.
After hitting the 30-year-old mark, Ronaldo is expected to decline in terms of performance in the next few years. Due to his overwhelming popularity, the Portuguese has the potential to earn a lot by playing in leagues like the MLS and the Middle East.
This will be his likely route going forward according to di Maria, who provided a major chunk of Ronaldo’s goals in the last few years before joining United in the summer for £ 16 million. Ronaldo signed a new long-term contract only in September 2013 and Madrid have stated that they wish to retain the Portuguese superstar for a long time.
Ronaldo has already scored 26 goals in the league in what is turning out to be a phenomenal campaign.”I don’t think that he will return here, it is very difficult to leave Real Madrid. He is doing very well there – therefore, I don’t see a reason why he would want a change,” said di Maria.
This was also the statement given by the Argentine back in November.“He told me that I would be happy here and that it was a great opportunity for my career,” said the Argentine. Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has a good relationship with United.
