Mata: Ronaldo is a player who makes the difference in any league, but his return to United is diffic

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata reckons it'll be difficult for the Red Devils to lure Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford. Ronaldo, who has hardly denied reports linking him with his former club, spent six years with the Reds and won nine trophies, including the Champions League in 2008. However, former Valencia star Mata told "I think it's difficult for that to happen, in truth. "The respect and admiration that the people have for Cristiano [in Manchester] is incredible. "You see it at the training ground, at the stadium, with so many photos of when he won all those titles there and did so well on a personal level as well.

"But it's complicated with him at a club like Real Madrid and happy there, which I think he is. He is a player who makes the difference in any league, obviously. "But as it's very complicated at the moment, I prefer to focus on the players who are here, on playing well and achieving the club's objectives."
