Ronaldo has suggested he would love to return to Manchester United in the future. The Portuguese spent six productive years at Old Trafford winning three league titles, the Champions League and numerous other trophies.
But despite making a blistering start to the season at Real Madrid under new boss Jose Mourinho, Ronaldo has refused to rule out a move back to the North West giants.
He said: ‘To be honest I miss the Premier League a lot. Of course I have good memories about Manchester. I have good friends there and I miss them a lot, so you never know.
‘Sir Alex Ferguson is like a second father for me. He helped me a lot during the six years I was in Manchester, he taught me many things.’
Ronaldo has made a prolific start to the season in Spain’s La Liga and has praised Mourinho for helping him rediscover his top form.
The French international is the club’s top target after being recommended by Ronaldo, who left Old Trafford for the Santiago Bernabeu in a world record £80 million deal last summer.
Valdano has a number of other candidates on his wishlist — including Arsenal’s Gael Clichy, Chelsea’s Ashley Cole and Fiorentina’s Juan Manuel Vargas — but Evra is his top target as Ronaldo insists he is the man for the job. As a result, a bid in the region of £20m is being prepared.
Reports from France suggest Evra might be open to the move, considering he has already won every trophy available to him in English football since joining United from Monaco in January 2006.
Cristiano Ronaldo won the Puskas Goal of the Year award at FIFA’s award gala for his 40-yard strike against Porto in last season’s Champions League quarter final when he was still a Manchester United player.
