Could Cristiano Ronaldo’s return spark Manchester United to greatness

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return spark Manchester United to greatness
Real Madrid are looking to freshen up things to compete with Barcelona, and Ronaldo himself is interested in new challenge. The former Manchester United man was subject jeers and whistles during Real’s 7-1 win over Celta Vigo, while he also appeared to lashed out his teammates following their 1-0 loss in the Madrid Derby.
There is a slight hint that Ronaldo is heading toward his physical peak and has failed to impose himself in against the better oppositions, but Scott Patterson feels that Real Madrid all time top scorer is worth the gamble, and considering Premier League standards, it could suit him and his return will installed renewed sense of belief among Old Trafford faithfuls.
With Ronaldo turning 31 before this season ends, the feelings on a return aren’t unanimous from the United support. Some insist that you should never go back and that Ronaldo’s best days are behind him. Others note that Wayne Rooney is Louis van Gaal’s main man and it is his place in the line-up that Ronaldo would require, leading the line.
“However, if United had the opportunity to re-sign Ronaldo, they would mad to let that pass them by. If Ronaldo is past his best now, he’s still better than anything the Premier League has to offer, with his 13 goals in 16 games meaning no one in England’s top tier has found the back of the net more times than him this season.
“The standard of the Premier League isn’t what it used to be. When you look at the lack of quality in the title races over the past few seasons, with Chelsea winning the league with ease despite looking distinctly average for the second half of the season, while an unremarkable Liverpool side came so close to winning the title the season before thanks to the goals of Luis Suarez, it shows the addition of a player of Ronaldo’s quality could make all the difference to United’s title hopes.”
