Recent reports have linked Manchester City and Cristiano Ronaldo together, though CR7 only recently shamed wild rumours of football transfers. However, his former Manchester United teammate (where both made their careers), Wayne Rooney doesn’t see Ronaldo making a City move.
Cristiano Ronaldo will not jeopardize his Manchester United legacy by joining Manchester City, or so Wayne Rooney believes at least.
Wayne Rooney, a Manchester United faithful, even after retirement, does not see his former teammate joining Pep Guardiola’s City side.
Forward for Juventus, Ronaldo is reportedly close to signing a two-year contract with Premier League champions Manchester City.
Indeed, he wants City to agree to the three conditions letting him move before the transfer window closes next Tuesday.
Rooney Doesn’t See Ronaldo Making a City Move
However, his former teammate Wayne Rooney believes Ronaldo’s move to Paris Saint-Germain is more likely than a Manchester City transfer.
Rooney discussed the prospect of Ronaldo joining Pep Guardiola’s City.
And the Derby County boss said, according to Mirror: “It’s an interesting one but I can’t see it.”
“I think Cristiano has got a very good legacy at Manchester United and I know how proud he is as a player and a person. I can’t see it, but it’s football so you never know,” he elaborated.
He added: “There have been a few that have done it [joined City after playing for United] but no one at Cristiano’s level. Obviously, Peter Schmeichel and Andy Cole, but I just can’t see that as an option for him really.
“Financially of course he doesn’t need to do it. I think it’s more likely that it’s PSG he goes to.”
Cristiano Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 games for Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. And along the way, he, with Manchester United, won three Premier League titles and a Champions League title.
In current playing football news of Ronaldo, new coach Massimiliano Allegri only let him start on the bench for Juventus. Ronaldo entered the pitch as late as in the second half, at 60 minutes, in this 2-2 Serie A tie.
