Transfer news: Cristiano Ronaldo will return to the Premier League, claims former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon
Ballon d'Or winner still has five years left on Real Madrid contract
Wednesday 15 January 2014
Real Madrid's former president Ramon Calderon thinks that Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to end his career in England.
The 28-year-old has only just signed a new five-year deal with the Spanish giants but could have one more big move left before retirement.
There were reports of a Manchester United return over the summer and Ronaldo has subsequently admitted he considered it after talking with Rio Ferdinand.
However despite his future appearing to lie in Spain for the time being, Calderon believes that a Premier League return may tempt the Portuguese star before he retires.
He said in The Sun: "I do not think he will finish his career at Real.
"I feel that one day he will return to England. In Madrid, he is pleased with the city and the fans. But I think his relationship with Florentino Perez is not as good as it was with Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
"Ronaldo loves father figures. With Florentino, he does not have that rapport.
"The relationship is bad or actually non-existent. He stays at Real despite the chairman."
