Louis van Gaal turned down move to sign Cristiano Ronaldo – report

Manchester United and Louis van Gaal made a big statement of intent in the summer, by signing some of the biggest names in world football as their hunt for a spot in the top four goes on. However, things could’ve been very different, as according to reports in Spain, Van Gaal rejected the chance to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to a Spanish journalist, Jorge Mendes met with Martin Ferguson earlier in the year,and when he mooted the suggestion that Ronaldo could return, Louis van Gaal rejected the chance to bring the legend back to Old Trafford.

Ronaldo has been constantly linked with a return to Old Trafford, but as he gets older the chances of that move happening are looking increasingly unlikely.
