Manchester United manager David Moyes has hinted that the club may be prepared to make a mega money offer for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo in order to bring him back to Old Trafford. Ronaldo became the best player in the world during his time at Manchester United. This resulted in a £ 80 million move to the Santiago Bernebeu. Even with the pressure of this transfer fee, he has been able to perform in an absolutely brilliant way. He has averaged more than a goal per game since moving to Madrid.
He is only a few goals short of the record held by Alfredo di Stefano in much lesser games. However, there has been reports that Ronaldo is not entirely happy at Madrid and that he would want to leave the club. He is also not happy that the signing of Gareth Bale made him the second most expensive player behind the Welshman. Even though he signed a new five-year contract only in the summer, Moyes has revealed that he would one day like to work with Ronaldo due to his history at Old Trafford.
“Everyone at Manchester United would tell you he is the best in the business anyway. I have not been fortunate enough to work with him but there is still hope some day it might be possible,” said Moyes in an interview given to MUTV. “When you have Ronaldo it makes it easy. He scores all the time. He scored three goals on Tuesday. He is an amazing player, for me the best player in the world,” said Anderson about his former teammate.
Anderson has said that playing with Ronaldo is extremely easy because he often comes with the goals necessary to win matches. Ronaldo would cost in excess of £60 million, while he is rumoured to have a release clause of around £1 billion.

Real Madrid’s most expensive signing Gareth Bale has lauded his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo by saying that the Portuguese is the best player in the world. Ronaldo finally managed to beat Lionel Messi and win the FIFA Ballon d’Or award for this year. He last won the trophy back in 2008 after which he earned an £ 80 million move to Real Madrid. He has gone on from strength to strength since making the move to Madrid. However, the form of Messi has managed to keep him at bay when it comes to the Ballon d’Or award.
Injuries at important stages of the season have put Messi out of contention for this award. Bale is expected to be one of the future winners of the award, as he has started his Madrid career in impressive fashion. He has formed a great partnership with Ronaldo, but his performance levels have dipped in recent weeks. Manager Carlo Ancelotti has stated that the world record signing has more to give on the pitch and he is expecting improved performances from the Welshman in the future.
Ronaldo was very emotional after winning the award and he later said that he is happy to have been recognised as the best player in the world by his peers. Ronaldo beat Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery to this coveted prize.
“For his first year, he’s doing well. Of course he can do better because he needs to combine better with his team-mates. But those are normal problems for a player who’s discovering a new culture, new football and new country. It’s not a problem about being in the starting line-up or not, Gareth Bale is a very, very important player for us. Gareth Bale’s history is very clear,” said Ancelotti about the player, who faced fitness problems at the start of the season.
Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale has said that he did not feel any pressure during the weekend’s match against Real Valladolid. Madrid managed to beat their opposition 4-1 with the world’s most expensive player scoring a hat-trick for the first time in Real Madrid colours. Gareth Bale has slowly been coming back to his best after a tough start to life at the Santiago Bernebeu. He was clearly not fit during the first few matches of his Madrid life. Now that he appears to be at full fitness, the Welshman is showing that the money spent on him is worth it.
Madrid paid a world record transfer fee of £ 86 million in order to bring him to the Spanish club. However, Cristiano Ronaldo has been grabbing the headlines for his performances on the pitch, but he was absent for the match against Real Valladolid due to a thigh strain. He was also unable to play against Galatasaray in the midweek Champions League match. Bale was once again impressive in the European encounter, by scoring and creating many others, but he really shone against Real Valladolid.
“It was a massive blow not having Cristiano playing. For me, he is the world’s best player and we had to do a job without him. [But] I didn’t feel any pressure to be honest. I just want to go out there and enjoy my football and thankfully I scored a hat-trick. I think as soon as I scored the second I was trying to get the third. My teammates have helped me to settle in straight away,” said the 24-year-old.
He said that Ronaldo is clearly the best player in the world, but Madrid were able to play without pressure on Saturday despite missing him. Bale has also insisted that more is yet to come from him.

In Portugal’s previous World Cup qualifying game against Israel, Cristiano Ronaldo was shown yellow card in the first minute of the injury time. Now, that’s something that is pretty normal in the game of football. Players get booked when they cross the line. But, that Ronaldo incident is being discussed a lot in the media and among the fans these days. The discussion is if that booking was intentional on Ronaldo’s part.
Now, let us see why people are thinking so. Portugal’s World Cup qualifying group is Group F. To come close to the group leaders Russia and to keep their hopes alive of directly qualifying for the finals, they needed to secure win against Israel. But, they couldn’t do that. Now, it’s certain that they have to go through the play offs. So, their next game against Luxemburg is not of much importance.
The yellow card towards the end of the game against Israel ensured that Ronaldo was not going to play against Luxemburg, but, he will be there in the play offs which are starting next month.
However, when the Real Madrid striker himself was asked if that was an intentional thing, he said, “I wouldn’t say anything about that incident. But, one thing is for sure that I want to be there playing for my team in the play offs.”
When asked about the performance of his team against Israel, Ronaldo said, “I don’t think we were up to the mark. We were too slow in the latter half and at times, we looked sleepy. We need big improvements.”
In the play offs, Portugal might have to take on France which is one of the strongest teams in the world at the moment. When asked about that, Ronaldo said, “They are a world class side. I hope we don’t face them.”
