It will be interesting to see what route Red Devils decide to take when it comes to transfers this Summer. Supporters might want to see some big players come in to take them to that next level, but they tried that before with the players like of Alexis, Lukaku and Pogba, and that didn’t work out.
The Norwegian manager has done a fine job of signing promising footballers who were possibly under the radar and improving them, so that might be the better way to go. Amid that, when a big name becomes available, it must be tempting, and they don’t come much bigger than Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Bianconeri are starting to struggle financially, and the current crisis has made that worse, so allowing Portugal international to move on would be a right way of solving that. Cristiano is now 35, so he shouldn’t have too many years left, but he’s still been phenomenal this campaign and seems to be as fit as ever.
It could be a fairy tale come back if it works out, Cristiano went from a show-pony to a ruthless goal-scoring machine during his time in Man United, so coming back and firing them into the title race and UCL relevancy could be the perfect way to wind down his career.
One of the main problems with Man United this campaign is the attackers can be more interested in drifting wide and linking things up rather than scoring goals, that wouldn’t be an issue with Cristiano. He could also help to mentor Rashford and Greenwood to improve their skills, so it could be an impressive signing if it worked out.
