Ronaldo will make Premier League return, says Calderon.Reuters

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes Cristiano Ronaldo will one day return to the Premier League to possibly finish his career at Manchester United.

The 2013 Ballon 'Or winner was tentatively linked with a return to Old Trafford during the summer following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement until he signed a new five year contract with the Spanish giants which will keep him at the Bernabeu until 2018.

The 28-year-old admitted that his former United teammate Rio Ferdinand had tried to convince him to return to his former club, something he considered before eventually deciding to commit himself to Los Blancos.

But Calderon, who held the role as club president between 2006 and 2009, believes Ronaldo will have the chance to return to England later on his career and will not be able to resist the temptation of playing in the Premier League again.

"I do not think he will finish his career at Real," Calderon told The Sun.

"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 (Real's current president) is not as good as it was with Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

"Ronaldo loves his 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."

Although he envisages a move further along down the line, Calderon stresses that keeping Ronaldo in the Spanish capital this summer was vital for the club's stature in European football.

"Of course, everyone in the world wants to have Cristiano in their team certainly.

"It was very important to keep him with us for the image of Madrid and for his level of performance in the years to come. Cristiano was born to play for Real Madrid."
