The soap opera continues to unfold as Ronaldo seeks a new contract that will likely make him one of the sport's richest players wherever he lands. His status with Real Madrid is looking murkier, opening the door to a potential break-up after four seasons.
Former coach José Mourinho took a parting shot at the star, calling him a "know-it-all," according to The Guardian:
Apparently Ronaldo has no say in the matter.
The 28-year-old has notched 34 goals in as many La Liga games during the 2012-13 season with Madrid. He led the club to a title in 2012, and his £80 million salary is not too shabby.
Now that he has taken his current team to the promised land, he should consider returning to his former club. Manchester United is already a powerhouse without the Portuguese star. With him, the English Premier League is theirs.
Two years still remain on his contract, but it's fun to think of what the two could do together. Ronaldo is now well in his prime, and Manchester United sits firmly on top of the EPL.
Forming a dynamic duo with Robin van Persie would just add to the club's stronghold over the rest of the pack.
As for Ronaldo, joining the prestigious club firmly keeps his face instilled on the Mount Rushmore of soccer's elite.
Not to mention, they also have money. Lots of money. So if there's any team that could pull this potential reunion off, it's Manchester United.
And if they do, look out.
