Mourinho rules out CR7 return
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has ruled out the possibility of Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo rejoining the Red Devils.
The Portuguese international left the Red Devils for Real Madrid in 2009 and has been the subject of speculation ever since that he would one day go back to England. However, United boss Mourinho believes that at 33 years-of-age the Portuguese star would only go to the United States or a similar league as he winds down his career.
“I don’t think Real Madrid can sell him, it is prohibited. He has to stay until the moment they say he can go and play one year in America or anywhere else he wants to enjoy. It’s a closed door.”
Although United will not push to re-sign Ronaldo, even Mourinho confessed it would be hard to turn the opportunity down should he receive any encouragement over a possible deal.
