Reportedly, Jim White of Talk Sports UK said, “For many years, Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United has been discussed a lot. Especially when he left Real Madrid, when he was still in his prime, a move was possible.”

“But at the time, coach Mourinho prioritized signing other players. This was a clear and certain opinion, so Ronaldo was not signed,” he explained.

The media added, “The ‘other players’ White said were defenders such as Toby Alderweireld, Diego Godin and Jerome Boateng.”
