When Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United for a record £80 million fee in 2009, it seemed he would never walk onto the pitch at Old Trafford in a red and black shirt again.

But over the last year, while he has continued to shine at new home Real Madrid, the striker has hinted on a few occasions that a return to England is always a possibility.

And with Ronaldo claiming that United are his favourite English side, fans the world over are hopeful and wishful that the 26 year old, who has continued to break records in La Liga since making the move, may one day come back to United where he grew into the superstar he is today.

As reports circulate that Ronaldo is being booed by Real Madrid fans on a regular basis, rumours that he may consider a return to United are cropping up once again.

But United already have a plethora of strikers and wingers, so what is it about Ronaldo that makes a transfer seem likely if the opportunity arose? IBTimes UK takes a look at whether the superstar would make a good fit for Sir Alex Ferguson's current line-up.
