It has been reported that Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal admits he would love Cristiano Ronaldo to join him at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils continue to be linked with a sensational return for the Real Madrid star but van Gaal is realistic when it comes to the pursuit of such a player.
“He may come,” said van Gaal of the former United ace.
“Yes, of course, the fans would love it and so would I.
“But it’s not possible. Why not? Because you have his club Real Madrid, you have Ronaldo and then you have Manchester United – and how much Manchester United want to spend.
“Of course, we are still looking. When it is possible to buy players from that level at a reasonable price then we shall do that because they can contribute and make us better. We are looking for much more creativity.”
