Calderon: Ronaldo fed up with Perez - potential Man United return?

Cristiano Ronaldo seems unhappy at Real Madrid according to Roman Calderon, which will only fuel speculation of a possible Manchester United return.

Former Real Madrid president Roman Calderon has suggest that Cristiano Ronaldo's relationship with current president Florentino Perez has broken down.

Calderon was talking to TalkSport, where he seemed to suggest the players that were sold have not pleased the former Manchester United star - who has been linked back with a move to Old Trafford for the past season or so.

Calderon said: “My impression is he is fed up with the policy of the current president.

“When he came [to Real Madrid] with [Arjen] Robben he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team [but then he was sold].

“Two years ago it was [Gonzalo] Higuain sold and he didn’t like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let [Mesut] Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel di Maria this summer.

“When I signed him in 2008, I remember he said he was grateful to Manchester United.

"He had a marvellous time there, he likes everything. It is a really great club."

These comments will only add to the speculation that the Portuguese star is prepared to leave the Bernabeu. He was also linked with a move to Chelsea to link up with former manager Jose Mourinho, to which the Blues' manager said 'forget it'.

It may give cause for United fans to be excited that one of their heroes could return to the club - where he won three consecutive Premier League titles along with the Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup twice. 

Ronaldo's performances and body language may be scrutinised in the coming weeks and months, and his future is likely to be the subject of a lot of speculation between now and the January transfer window.

Even with all the signings United have made in the summer in the likes of Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao, Louis van Gaal would find a place for Ronaldo in the United side should he wish to return. It could be an interesting story in the coming months.
