Man Utd legend Irwin backing Ronaldo Old Trafford return

Manchester United legend Denis Irwin can see Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford. Writing in his Sunday World column, Irwin opined:

"So Manchester United have been linked for a second time this summer with a return to Old Trafford for Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Of course it could happen, but I believe the speculation may be sparked by the ever-clearer indications that Gareth Bale is on the way from Spurs to Real Madrid.

"Can Real Madrid, rich and all as they are, afford to buy and then pay that brilliant pair of players? If the answer is yes, then Madrid see them as their answer to the [Lionel] Messi and Neymar duo at Barcelona. If the answer is no, then Ronaldo will be allowed leave, and Manchester United is an obvious destination."
