Louis van Gaal on Falcao, van Persie and signing Cristiano Ronaldo


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal confirmed he would be interested in bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils signed a number of top-class players during the summer transfer window and are ready to make a move for the Portugal international.

"Yes, but it's always a discussion in the papers, and I don't think the media shall buy Ronaldo," van Gaal said during Friday's press conference.

"It is possible. That's what I have said with Falcao.

"Players like Ronaldo give a lot of extra to a team, but I don't think Real Madrid shall sell him."

Meanwhile, the manager rejected claims that strikers Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie cannot be part of the same squad.

"I don't think that Falcao interfered with van Persie or van Persie interfered with Falcao," added van Gaal.

"I think Falcao is a very good striker. I also said when he was coming in his first press conference that I like van Persie also.

"Then we have Rooney and Januzaj and we have [James] Wilson.

"We have five players for the two striker positions and I have to choose."
