Chievo Verona v Juventus - Serie A
Ronaldo could have joined Manchester United

Whats the story?

Portuguese talisman Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juventus after nine successful seasons at the club but was he a target for former club Manchester United? He had helped Madrid win four Champions League titles and two LaLiga trophies.

According to reports, Cristiano Ronaldo could have joined Manchester United after leaving the Madrid club.

In case you didn't know...

Manchester United have not performed as per their standard since the departure of Alex Ferguson as the club's manager. Ronaldo was an integral part of the squad form 2003 to 2009 helping United win nine trophies.

Reports even suggested that United were targeting Ronaldo's Madrid club-mate Gareth Bale but they were unsuccessful in acquiring him. Ronaldo has always been influential for the club he has joined and guided them to reach the pinnacle of club competition.

The heart of the matter

English sports presenter Richard Keys wrote on his personal blog:

One last thing on this: When is somebody going to ask Mourinho if he got the chance to sign Ronaldo in the summer.I know the answer. I’d love to hear his.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a goal-scoring machine who can score for any club in any given competition in the world. Manchester United could have reclaimed their lost glory if they had scooped the opportunity of signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
