Premier League

Rafael, for selfish reasons, would have told Cristiano Ronaldo not to return to Manchester United

Rafael da Silva, a former Manchester United right-back, speaking to Fogao Net, has revealed that he had wanted Cristiano Ronaldo, following the speculations of his return to the Premier League, not to return to his former employer, Manchester United.

The thirty-one (31) years old right back, since he left Manchester United in 2015, having spent seven (7) at the Old Trafford, has played for Lyon and Istanbul Basaksehir before returning to Botafogo, in his homeland.

The Brazilian, Rafael da Silva, asserting that Cristiano Ronaldo would have been the only choice player to join him at Botafogo, said, “if I could choose one to play here (at Botafogo), I’d talk to Cristiano Ronaldo, tell him to come (and) play here. Is there another one? There’s no way.”

Therefore, Rafael da Silva, reacting to Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Manchester United, said, “I’d tell him not to go to Manchester, and I’m in love with Manchester United too, but I’d tell him to come to Botafogo, come to a different team.”

Did he 'really' consider the financial implications of signing Cristiano Ronaldo on Botafogo?—a case of if wishes were horses.
