Cristiano Ronaldo will not be returning to Manchester United any time soon due to Jose Mourinho signing a new contract at the club, according to Le10sport.

Ronaldo had been linked with a move back to the club where he first announced himself as the world’s best player for most of last summer.

Several newspapers hinted at a feeling of betrayal held by the Portuguese superstar against his club Real Madrid because of their evident lack of support for him during his tax case.

Having apparently grown disillusioned with life in the Spanish capital, reports claimed that he was desperate to leave and move back to England. In the end though, the 33-year-old chose to stay, as no club really came in with a concrete interest to land him.

Still, it appears as though the Portuguese superstar is discontent, and it might be the cause for the uncharacteristically poor form he has been in this season.

A return to his former club seemed written in the stars initially, but Ronaldo now appears to have changed his mind due to United’s decision to tie Mourinho down to a new contract.

The two Portuguese legends have worked together before while the United boss was still at Real, however, they fell out during the manager’s last season in Spain, and their relationship never really did much healing. Hence, the likelihood of them pairing up again appears dim.

Ronaldo is still eager to leave Los Blancos though, and would take a move to Paris Saint-Germain into some serious consideration. Real Madrid are tracking the French giants’ starman Neymar, and are ready to offer Ronaldo in return, according to reports.

The move would work both ways, with Real refusing to comply to Ronaldo’s demands for improved wages to match Lionel Messi’s mammoth contract at Barca.
