Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo to make a return to Old Trafford.
Solskjaer and Ronaldo played together during the Portuguese six-year spell at Old Trafford from 2003-2009 which prepared him for the reign in Real Madrid.
The reigning Manchester United boss Solskjaer revealed that Ronaldo s one of the stars from the past he would just love to sign.
Solskjaer was asked which of his 1999 treble-winning team-mates he would like in his United team now and opted for midfield duo Roy Keane and Paul Scholes.
But then he added: “Don’t forget I played with Cristiano and he’s the best player in the world — so I wouldn’t mind having him in my team too.”
“Cristiano always wanted to be the best but he was shaped by the environment he came to at United.
“We — the more experienced players — just had to guide him once in a while.
“We could see a world-class talent with the best attributes you could see.
“But there were little things we could help with.
“You could see he was not going to let anything get in the way of being the best in the world.
“You have to make sacrifices — and he did.”
Ronaldo won five Ballon d’Or before he left for an adventure in Serie A where he won the Serie A best player last season in his first season with the Bianconneri Old Ladies.
