After slamming trade rumors to Manchester United recently, Cristiano Ronaldo fans who are hoping for a team move may have to be patient.
Sky Sports' Spanish football expert Guillem Balague said that Ronaldo is most likely to return to his old team during the summer of 2016, but not before that. Balague told Sky Sports on Tuesday that, "It is quite clear that Manchester United are letting all this continue because they are interested in Cristiano Ronaldo.
"People want this to happen in January, if possible. It's not going to happen. In the summer? I don't think it's going to happen. Real Madrid have got no intention whatsoever of selling Cristiano Ronaldo next summer," he said. He thinks it will happen around 2016 because Ronaldo will be in his early thirties and they'll be ready to "cash in" on him.
"I don't think it's going to happen this summer. People will have to be a little bit more patient."
Ronaldo recently slammed trade rumors saying he was happy with Real Madrid. "It's all speculation, speaking about my future ... My future is Madrid. I'm happy," Ronaldo told reporters according to Goal.com last week. "The season is going well and I'm not talking about my future, it doesn't make sense."
Ronaldo has been having an amazing season so far as his team competes in Bulgaria Wednesday.
