Former England captain and Real Madrid star, David Beckham has advised Cristiano Ronaldo to finish his career at Manchester United if the Portuguese star decides to leave Real Madrid, GulfNews reports .
Beckham said, “If he decides to leave Real then, for me personally, it’s back to United. I never had the opportunity to do that but I’m proud of the teams I played for after leaving United.
“Obviously given the chance once I’d left United, to have played for one of the biggest clubs in the world — Real Madrid — that was a dream. But I’d never advise any player not to return to United.”
“I’d never advise anyone against coming back to United. I’d have crawled back if I could,” Beckham, who left Manchester United for Real Madrid in 2003, added.
Ronaldo has been offered contracts by Chelsea and Paris St Germain should he decide to say goodbye to the Spanish giants. Since arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu, the star forward has scored 326 goals in 315 games to become Madrid’s all-time leading scorer.
However, Ronaldo’s future continues to be the subject of speculation.
“Cristiano is such a fans’ favourite — he was so successful at Old Trafford and such a hard worker. Everyone you talk to that has played with him, been around his world, he’s not just one of the most talented players in the game, he’s a hard worker as well,” Beckham said.
