Although, The Portuguese has delivered on and off the field for the Bianconeri, their mounting financial problems could force them to sell the superstar.
Moreover, he was purchased to help hand them the champions league trophy and all to no avail as they have been eliminated in the quater finals and even the round of 16 this season despite having made the final twice before his arrival.They are looking worse than before since his arrival and might also lose out on securing the Serie A league tittle this season with Inter milan top of the Serie with 11points and just 6matches to go.
The former Real Madrid star had formerly in 2014 stated his love for his Manchester United and his dreams of a return one day
“I love Manchester. Everyone knows that. Manchester is in my heart.
“The supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.”
This could see his dream of a comback come to past with the transfer window set to open in the summer of 2021.
