There is a speculation going that Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is to satisfied with his team and even has plans to leave it. Ronaldo reportedly has hinted his desire to return to Old Trafford.

The rumors became stronger after his girlfriend, Irina Shayk, made comments about her love for Paris, which led several sources to speculate that she could be pressuring her beau to sign with Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview with Daily Express, the 28-year-old Russian beauty confessed her admiration for France, immense hospitality of the locals and the sheer beauty and aura of French capital – Paris.

Among the notable destinations, that Shayk loves to visit when in Paris, include the Louvre Museum and the Notre Dame Cathedral. She went on to compare Paris with Saint Petersburg, claiming that the two have a lot in common in terms of historical importance.

“I am always moved to return to Paris and I hope to spend more time here one of these days,” the Sports Illustrated model was quoted as saying in the interview.  Irina was quick to add: “Is it that I should convince Cristiano to sign for Paris (Saint-Germain)?”

Cristiano is believed to be in talks with the authorities at Old Trafford, who are keen to get him back on the side and have a sweet deal in place for him. The English club has the necessary resources in place to grab him, although, the final decision rests with the star.

Despite moving out in 2009, Cristiano has been vocal about his desire to get back into United’s squad. He has publicly confessed his love for Manchester United on numerous different occasions too.

The Portugal star signed with Manchester United in 2003. He was the first Portuguese player to have been signed by the English football club. He played for Manchester for almost six years until he was offered an enormous deal by Real Madrid worth £80 million for a six-year contract.

Actually, the brilliant soccer player only recently agreed to put pen to paper on a new long-term bumper deal with los Blancos that ties the Portugal international to the Santiago Bernabeu until June 2018, reports Caughtoffside.

However, the 28-year-old has now left the door open to a possible switch to the Parc des Princes one day in the future by telling French programme Telefoot: “Maybe one day I’ll be in France to live and to play. Or maybe not.

“France has always been welcoming to the Portuguese people. My mother worked there. It’s a country that I really love. All I can say about French fans is that they continue to support me.”
