|Ferguson would call for the board to get Ronaldo|
One of those destinations has to be Old Trafford, which has started the thought of him donning the red jersey again, which tickles many of the supporter's fancies. But, they must remember that that may come at a frustrating cost.
It's quite clear that time heals all wounds, because when he was a Manchester United player for six years, the vast majority of supporters has a strong distaste for his diving around and sulking attitude if things didn't go away. So these supporter that want him back must keep in mind that we will need to overlook some things for the greater good. His latest outburst saying that he is "sad" at Madrid will more than likely happen again - because it's already happened during his time at United.
Despite his undeniable skill of sulking, he is still herald as being one of the two best players in today's game. he is perhaps one of the most talent players to ever wear Manchester United shirt. There is - or at least should be - no question to his status of being a legend at the club, because he was our best, most influential player during the most successful period in the club's history. Even Sir Alex has said before that he sold Ronaldo too cheap to Real, after he is averaging nearly a goal with them.
Before this season, I would have said no way to him coming back to Old Trafford due to it potentially threatening the cohesion of the squad. However, I have had a stern change of heart, because there is no way in God's name you could ever think to deny a player of Ronaldo's quality from playing for your team. Yes, his sulking maybe tiresome at times, but the amount of promise that he would bring would certainly dwarf any of that bad stuff. The idea of having him, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie on the field is mind blowing, to say the least.
Now, the question that come with this is: Can Manchester United afford him? Well, this is best case scenario for the supporters, because they could potentially see Ferguson square off with David Gill and the Glazers about stumping up the funds. If they did, it would surely quiet a lot of those who have and were complaining that United never re-invested the money from the sale of him to Madrid in the first place.
Cristiano Ronaldo is - and always will be - one of those players who are worth whatever the money spent on him, so I, for one, would love to fathom the thoughts of welcome him back at Manchester United!
