London, Feb. 14 (ANI): Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted at a sensational return to Manchester United when he refused to rule out playing for Old Trafford again.
"Of course I miss playing for Manchester United. 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," News of the World quoted Ronaldo, as saying.
"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," he added.
The 2008 World Player of the Year quit for Real Madrid in a mega 80-million-pound transfer last year.
Wayne Rooney has had to take on the challenge of replacing Ronaldo's amazing goalscoring record at Old Trafford.
"I still speak to Wayne. When I have the opportunity I speak with him, with Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra. We talk about football and everything," he said.
"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," he added.
Ronaldo, 25, signed a six-year deal with the Spanish giants in the summer.
"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 here. I want to fulfil my contract here but, in the future, only God knows," he added. (ANI)
