Gary Neville believes that the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United will give the supporters a new sense of optimism. Ronaldo has signed a two-year contract with Manchester United. He won three Premier league titles and one Champions league dring his first stint at the club. United is hoping to compete with the likes of Manchester city, Chelsea, and Liverpool for the Premier League title.
“It’s fantastic news,” Gary Neville said after Cristiano Ronaldo signed a two-year contract with manchester united. “It’s a little bit nostalgic, which doesn’t always work in football, but the idea of Ronaldo going to Manchester City was torture for United fans. If there is a big player available, United has to be in the market. We know there’s a potential that Erling Haaland could be available next summer, Edinson Cavani’s probably got a year, they definitely need a center-forward option with Cavani.”
“I know they’ve got Mason Greenwood but if you look at the business Chelsea have done, that Manchester City was looking to do, Manchester United had to compete, and what they’ve done is bolster the squad with a proven goalscorer, a club legend, and it’s going to give them an incredible 12 months,” he added. “Ronaldo will be coming to win trophies, personal accolades, set the Premier League on fire. It is a different Ronaldo, everyone expected that. But he is a number nine, someone who still has that burst over short distances, he makes great runs inside the box, has anticipation of where the ball’s going to drop, and he gives United something they need.”
