Guti believes Ronaldo could make controversial LaLiga return

According to Los Blancos great Guti, Cristiano Ronaldo and Atletico Madrid would make a “good pairing” despite his Real Madrid past.

Ronaldo began Manchester United’s Premier League opener against Brighton and Hove Albion on the bench on Sunday, having missed most of the Red Devils’ pre-season campaign after reportedly expressing his desire to join a Champions League side.

With the likes of Bayern Munich quickly ruling out a move for the 37-year-old.

Atletico were touted as a potential destination for Ronaldo, who leads Madrid’s all-time goalscoring charts after netting 450 times for Los Blancos between 2009 and 2018.

Atletico supporters did not well receive those reports. However, some of them unveiled a banner reading ‘CR7 not welcome’ during a pre-season friendly against Numancia.

Atletico president Enrique Cerezo has also refuted suggestions Ronaldo could make the controversial move.

But former Madrid midfielder Guti is surprisingly enthusiastic about the prospect.

Guti told DAZN:

“If in this case he decides to come to Atletico Madrid, why not? It’s a great team, he’s a great striker.

“Atletico Madrid needs a good striker and why not? I think it would be a good pairing.

“It would be strange, because Madrid loves him very much, because he is a very loved player. I think that the Real Madrid fans wouldn’t mind. I think that everything Cristiano had to give to Real Madrid, he already gave.

“If he feels happy being able to play in a great team like Atletico Madrid and in the Spanish league, which I think he wants, why not?”

Ronaldo has earnt a reputation as chief tormentor of Atletico throughout his illustrious career.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored 25 goals in 37 competitive appearances against Los Colchoneros, including a late penalty in Madrid’s 4-1 extra-time Champions League final win in 2014.
