Angel Di Maria has dropped a transfer hint that will have all
Manchester United fans waiting on tenterhooks with anticipation, after
he let on that Cristiano Ronaldo might not be happy at Real Madrid.
Over the course of the past week speculation has raged surrounding
Ronaldo’s position at the Santiago Bernabeu, after the free-scoring
forward made it known that he was disgruntled with Di Maria’s sale.
The former United star told Spanish sources that he wouldn’t have let
his former teammate leave if it were his decision, conjuring rumours
that he was becoming frustrated with Florentino Perez’s routine of
selling big-name players.
Furthermore Perez was said to be
annoyed at Ronaldo’s decision to go public on the matter, though these
claims have since been denied by the man himself. Yet the fact remains
that Madrid’s star man earlier this week reiterated his love for United,
and opened up positively about the possibility of returning to play
there before his career was done.
It’s a far-fetched idea for sure, particularly when its considered
that he signed a new contract only last September – one that sees him
earn £280,000-a-week – but Di Maria’s most recent comments made it ever
slightly more feasible.
