The report states that Ralf Rangnick’s arrival at United has potentially opened the door to a winter return to Spain.
There is concerns over whether Ronaldo will suit Rangnick’s high-energy pressing game.
But Ronaldo and United’s running stats in Rangnick‘s first game in charge say otherwise.
The Red Devils comfortably saw of Crystal Palace 1-0 at Old Trafford with midfielder Fred capping off the dominant performance with a sweet strike from the edge of the penalty area.
Rangnick’s set-up saw Ronaldo be paired with Marcus Rashford, and the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s performance showed he is up for the fight and willing to press.
After the game, Rangnick singled Ronaldo out for praise saying: “We wanted to play with two strikers, especially in the central position.
“By the way, Cristiano Ronaldo’s work off the ball, chapeau.”
“Don’t forget that at Schalke he had another superstar in Raul, who was another ageing superstar, and he adapted things to make sure he could accommodate a player of that calibre and class.”
