A group of Manchester United fans calling themselves United Reel have paid £3,000 to fly a “Come home Ronaldo” banner over their game this weekend.
It is an attempt by a select group of fans who want to attempt another “Bring Ronaldo home” campaign this summer amid heavy speculation the Portuguese winger could leave Madrid this summer.
Just like the two banners that flew over Old Trafford last season, it has been immediately met with vociferous opposition and rightly so, it’s embarrassing.
The banner will do absolutely nothing to change anything with regards to a move for Ronaldo and it’s staggering that ‘fans’ genuinely believe there is any sort of positive aspect to this banner from United’s perspective.
