The news broke on Sunday afternoon that Manchester United are interested in re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
A no-doubt credible source leaked the intel to the press over the weekend, and it caused an immediate stir amongst fans on social media.
The news led to plenty of conjecture:
Would Ronaldo be the right signing for United?
Could he really break Wayne Rooney’s club record?
Is 40 a realistic age for his retirement?
Are United still looking at Morata?
So many questions…
But, almost as quickly as the story as surfaced, it appeared to be immediately dampened down again, with senior sources and major outlets back-tracking on their ‘breaking news’ from hours earlier, saying that Ronaldo is actually likely to stay at Real Madrid.
And that pessimistic outlook seemed to strike much more of a chord with the fans.
But, just for a minute, let’s imagine what it would be like if he did come to United.
And, as one fan pointed out, it could set up a reunion just weeks after the transfer. What a game that would be!
