Whilst he may have retired in May, Sir Alex Ferguson’s work never ends at Old Trafford.
With Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid future in doubt, it is believed Manchester United are ready to pounce to bring the fan favourite back to Manchester.
Graham Hunter alluded to Sir Alex’s involvement in getting the player back to the club yesterday, and now both The Sun and The Daily Mail are claiming that Sir Alex remaining at the club, even as a director, could sway Ronaldo.
It is no secret that the two share a strong relationship, with Sir Alex representing somewhat of a father figure for the forward.
With Ronaldo unhappy in Spain, United could play on this and deploy Sir Alex in an attempt to finish off the job he apparently started whilst still manager, and get the player back to Old Trafford.
