An Old Trafford return would cost at least €75million and reunite Ronaldo with Wayne Rooney, who Alex Ferguson has vowed will be a United player next season.
And speaking at the Laureus Sports Awards in Rio last night, United director Charlton admitted: “Any great player would be welcomed back but Cristiano went beyond being just a great player.
“He scores phenomenal goals, loves the club and was just the right sort of player at Manchester United. I’m a fan of him like anyone else and on a personal level I would like to see him back. I can’t say anything more than that.”
