EPL News: Louis Van Gaal Wants Ronaldo Back At Manchester United
Dutchman Louis Van Gaal now wants Cristiano Ronaldo’s return at Old Trafford. Ronaldo’s current team Real Madrid were handed a 4-0 drubbing in Saturday’s El Clasico against Barcelona FC. The Portuguese international will turn 31 this coming February.Advertisement
Van Gaal is lured by Ronaldo’s speed, which, according to him, would be able to make his gameplan more successful. Ronaldo plays on the wings, and he is fast and scores goals. There is no trainer in the world who doesn’t like him.
“Of course we are looking — but are looking at all players, not just Ronaldo. But these players are mostly ungettable.
“With Ronaldo, let’s wait and hope,” the United boss said on Sunday.
Ronaldo broke Raul’s record of scoring 323 goals for Real Madrid earlier this season and has been crowned as FIFA’s World Player of the Year thrice. He won three Premier League titles while playing for the Manchester United before he went over to Madrid.
Manchester United, on the other hand, could sign another left-back during the January transfer window, as Luke Shaw is out with a broken leg. Former England International Ashley Cole is on the cards in this regard.
“Luke’s rehabilitation is going well but the process can be very slow,” said United’s Dutch coach. “I don’t know if he will play again this season. The doctors won’t take any risks with him, which is good.”
