That’s according to former Fleet Street journalist Ian McGarry speaking on The Transfer Window podcast.
He says despite Ronaldo going vocal about his dissatisfaction with Spanish authorities over his tax affairs and the five-match ban he received for shoving the referee in Real Madrid’s Super Cup win over Barcelona earlier this month.
“Newspapers here in Spain are talking about Cristiano Ronaldo and the five-match ban he was given for the red card in the Super Cup,” McGarry said.

“I do not see Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Manchester United”
“Ronaldo has reiterated – not in quotations but obviously in briefings through his agent Jorge Mendes – that he feels his treatment in Spain is becoming increasingly unfair.
“I do not see Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Manchester United, the place he has intermated he would only consider returning to if he left Real Madrid.
“I think this is just more posturing from the great one throwing his weight around a bit with the Spanish authorities.”
One man United could get is Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.
He’s keen on a move, according to fellow Transfer Window podcast pundit Duncan Castles.
“I asked (a Monaco contact) where he thought Lemar would prefer to go, Arsenal or Manchester United? And he was very clear: He wants to go to Manchester United,” Castles said.
“As soon as Manchester United go head-to-head with Arsenal, the financial power is always going to be with the Old Trafford club.”
