Cristiano Ronaldo’s FPL price has been revealed, with the Manchester United star costing more than Bruno Fernandes.
Cristiano Ronaldo might be a popular Fantasy Premier League option.
The price of Cristiano Ronaldo in Fantasy Premier League has been announced, and he isn’t cheap! The Portuguese superstar has sealed a historic return to Manchester United and will make his second debut on September 11 against Newcastle.
Just a week ago, United fans were outraged when it appeared that Ronaldo would be making a surprise move to Manchester City.
The defending Premier League winners were reportedly in contact with Jorge Mendes.
However, when it became evident that Ronaldo was officially available due to his desire to leave Juventus, the Red Devils jumped in.
After leaving United 12 years ago, he is about to return to Old Trafford, and the Portugal international is set to become an instant FPL favourite.
In each of his last three seasons at United, Ronaldo scored over 200 points and averaged an astonishing 7.3 points per game.
Despite the fact that Ronaldo will be 37 years old next February, he will not be cheap this time.
His price has been set at £12.5 million, making him the game’s equal most expensive player.
Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane are both valued at £12.5 million, while Bruno Fernandes is £0.4 million less.
As expected, Ronaldo is classed as a forward in the game, therefore some players may try to pair Fernandes with Ronaldo.
However, selecting from United’s attacking alternatives this season could prove to be a nightmare for some managers.
Up top, Jadon Sancho (£9.3 million), Paul Pogba (£7.7 million), and Mason Greenwood (£7.6 million) are all realistic choices, while Anthony Martial (£7.8 million) and Edinson Cavani (£8.5 million) might also help.
Marcus Rashford (£9.4m) is also expected to return from injury soon for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
In FPL, Fernandes is presently the most-owned player, with 55.7 percent of owners including him in their lineup.
Salah of Liverpool is just ahead of him with 53.3 percent, but Ronaldo’s return to the Premier League will bite into that.
During the international break, United fans will be watching Portugal with bated breath to witness their prized signing in action.
