Should United Spend Big To Bring Mega Star Back?

There have been a lot of rumors regarding Ronaldo’s future as the winger goes into his last two seasons at Real Madrid. The Spanish side is known for valuing trophies and glory over dedication towards the club as seen in previous situations like that of Raul. With Ronaldo turning 31 this summer, he might be sold. The only club capable of reaching a deal with Real is very likely to be Manchester United. They have the resources and they have always been close to the forward’s heart. According to Metro, Real Madrid’s former keeper, Augustin Rodriguez has fueled up transfer rumors even more after insisting both Casillas and CR7 will be leaving which seems even more likely after the stars were unable to help Real secure either the La Liga title or the Champions League title after their loss the Juventus.

Apparently Manchester will have to pay around £71.5million which is a lot of money that may or may not be justified. After spending a lot of time in Spain, Ronaldo may not be that quick to re-adapt to the Premier League. The rough physical challenges could be affecting his playing style which may cause him to drop in efficiency. His age is also an issue despite all the expert reviews which say he will be on top of his game for at least 2 more years. For £71.5million LVG could sign some serious enforcements and strengthen key parts of the squad. He could get a world class striker like Lacazette while still having the money to bring in Hummels and even Gundogan. Despite Ronaldo’s abilities, and his scoring rate, it would be a lot more interesting to see three new players who are under 26, performing at Old Trafford. Add to that the fact that CR7 has a bit of a difficult locker room temper to handle and reasons for not bringing him back start piling up.
