It is impossible for Manchester United to sign Cristiano Ronaldo: Jorge Mendes

Ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United back in 2009, Old Trafford faithfuls have been expecting to see their superstar return to Premier League. In recent weeks, manager Louis Van Gaal has also joined the fun by saying how he is looking for transfer targets including Ronaldo.

However, PSG have a huge role to play in whether Cristiano joins Manchester United or not, as the French giants are considered the favorite side to sign Real Madrid man next summer. Amid all those rumours, Ronaldo’s agent and good friend Jorge Mendes came out to express his view on this saga and it is not a pleasing news for Red Devils.

Mendes said: “It is impossible. He will end his career at Real Madrid.” This should be the final warning for Manchester United to reassess their transfer targets next summer. Players like Gareth Bale, Neymar and Arjen Robben have been linked with a move to Old Trafford and having seen the recent form, age and money involved, Van Gaal would be better advised to shift his attention from Cristiano Ronaldo for now.

Having said that, I would like to quote one of Ronaldo’s favorite quotes where he often says, “I am happy at the moment but nobody knows the future”. Real Madrid must be thinking long and hard about what to do with their main man as he has made things clear about his desires to move away from Santaigo Bernabeu. His whisper in to Laurent Blanc’s ears, claims made in his movie are clear signs of his plans next summer. Having seen that, it would take something substantial for Madrid to convince their superstar to extend his stay in Madrid, as quoted by his agent.
