RONALDO: Misses his United 'family'

CRISTIANO RONALDO has opened the door on a sensational return to Manchester United.

The 2008 World Player of the Year quit for Real Madrid in a mega £80million transfer last summer.

But in an exclusive News of the World interview, Ron admits he misses his Old Trafford "family" and refuses to rule out playing for United again.

"Of course I miss playing for Manchester United," admitted the Portuguese superstar.

"Not just the club but my friends are still there, too. I played there for six years and that's a long time. Whenever I have the opportunity, I watch them play.

"I am still interested in watching Manchester United and, you never know, maybe in the future I could return to play there. It's always possible."

Wayne Rooney has had to take on the challenge of replacing Ronaldo's amazing goalscoring record at Old Trafford.

And Ronaldo said: "I still speak to Wayne. When I have the opportunity I speak with him, with Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra. We talk about football and everything.

"Wayne has scored a lot of goals and he is the man at Manchester United at the moment. I am really, really happy for him because he has deserved it, because he has worked for it."

Ronaldo, 25, signed a six-year deal with the Spanish giants in the summer.

He added: "I will not say I am not happy here at Real Madrid.

"I am really happy and everyone knows this is my club but, of course, I miss Manchester United, the boss, the players, because I left family there.

"I want to fulfil my contract here but, in the future, only God knows."

Ronaldo scored twice in Real's 3-0 win at Xerez on Saturday night on his return to the side after suspension.
