Cristiano Ronaldo made a flying visit to Manchester to say goodbye to his old boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

The star striker got a private jet from Portugal for a discreet meal with the United manager, who he called his “second father”.

They met at one of Sir Alex’s favourite restaurants in the swish Alderley Edge Hotel, just a few hundred yards from Ronaldo’s former home in Cheshire.

A source at the hotel said: “It was a low-key affair. Cristiano just wanted to say thanks for everything Sir Alex had done for him.”

Sir Alex paid a gushing tribute to the 24-year-old footballer following Monday’s meal.

He said: “Cristiano has been a marvellous player for Manchester United. His six years at Old Trafford have seen him develop into the best footballer in the world. He has been a major factor in the club’s success and everyone here wishes him well in his future.”
