Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has expressed his desire to bring back their former star Cristiano Ronaldo to the club, saying that he is 'hopeful' for the latter's return.

Van Gaal stressed that although his side wants to bring Ronaldo, his Real Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale also remains a target.

Lavishing praise on Ronaldo, the Dutchman said there is no trainer in the world who doesn't like him as he is fast and scores lot of goals for his side.  Ronaldo is the Spanish side's top goalscorer.

He moved to Old Trafford for £12.24m from Sporting Lisbon in 2003 and scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for the Red Devils.

Thirty-year-old Ronaldo was brought to Real Madrid from Old Trafford in July 2009 for 80 million pounds.
