Ronaldo 'Mission Impossible' For Manchester United

Ronaldo 'Mission Impossible' For Manchester United

Manchester United have ruled out the 'mission impossible' of taking Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.

A Premier League return to his former club was suggested stronger than ever before when it was claimed Ronaldo had decided he would leave this summer, which isn't something I realistically though would be the case, I still don't think it will.

Jose Mourinho has said he wouldn't 'waste time' on Ronaldo and has dismissed a United move for the Portugal captain.

Mourinho was quoted by Sky Sports: 'We have never thought about it because he is too much of an important player for his club, of great economic power. We have not been able to find for whatever reason anything that could have made us think that Ronaldo could leave. I'm not going to waste my time thinking about players who are mission impossible.'

The former Real boss was speaking from Los Angeles, following a 5-2 victory over LA Galaxy, ahead of a meeting with Los Blancos shortly as part of the pre-season scheduling at the International Champions Cup.

He went on to make it absolutely clear Alvaro Morata, a player he handed a Santiago Bernabeu debut too during his time at Real, was 'someone special' to him and Mourinho had wanted the Spanish international at United but he wasn't to be.

Romelu Lukaku was then signed from Everton instead.

Of Morata, Mourinho added: 'He belongs to Madrid. Madrid have decided and we have not come to an agreement. It is simple. It is a shame. He is a player who made it to the first team with me. We have a special liking for him, he is someone special. I enjoyed watching his evolution at Juventus and Madrid. It is like that. I don't think he can end with us.'
