On Friday David Moyes admitted that he still harbours ambitions of managing Cristiano Ronaldo, despite the Portuguese superstar signing a new deal this summer. But is there more to Moyes’ words that meet the eye?
‘Everyone at Manchester United would tell you he (Ronaldo) is the best in the business. I have not been fortunate enough to work with him but there is still a hope some day it might be possible.’
And the Daily Mail believes that Moyes could very well get his wish, claiming a United move for the star is still on the cards.
Pointing to a meeting between United official and Ronaldo’s representatives over a year ago, the paper believes that a deal can still be agreed and the new contract only served to ensure that he remained top dog in Madrid and that the club get a better fee for him, considering his contract was running out.
The paper believe that a deal could be reached after next years World Cup.
Personally I’m not holding my breath but the report makes you look at Moyes’ comments in a different light!
