United, PSG Eye 'Complete' Ronaldo

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson and Paris Saint-Germain Sporting Director Leonardo continue to lavish praise on unhappy Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo. On Thursday, Ferguson said the Portuguese has become “complete player” since leaving Manchester in 2009, while Leonardo said “everything is possible” when reporters linked Ronaldo with a move to PSG.

"Maturity brings many things,” Ferguson said in an interview with Inside United: "When I went to see [Real Madrid] play against [Manchester] City, some of his decision-making in terms of passing was brilliant. One-touch passing, good crosses… Now you see the complete player.”

Ronaldo has been linked with a return to United at the end of the season, which both Ferguson and Ronaldo have suggested they would welcome. However, the biggest snag in such a deal could be money, which Leonardo pointed out super-rich PSG has to burn. “PSG are a club where everything is possible,” the Brazilian said. “Nothing is concrete, there has been no contact. But now, when it comes to signing a great player like [Ronaldo], there are only four or five clubs that can manage it and PSG are one of them.” When asked if the same applied to Lionel Messi, Leonardo replied, “He will never leave Barcelona.”

No matter what happens, Ronaldo will make his return to Manchester when the Red Devils host Los Blancos in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 on March 5.
