Man City were told they had dodged a bullet after Cristiano Ronaldo slammed Man United’s transfer antics.
This summer, CRISTIANO RONALDO returned to Manchester United.
Manchester United’s fortunes are rapidly deteriorating.
The recent revelations about cliques forming in the dressing room and key players looking for a new face in the dugout may only be the tip of the iceberg.
Wolves outclassed the Red Devils 1-0 on Monday night, with Joao Moutinho scoring the game’s only goal.
As a result, Moutinho’s international teammate Ronaldo stormed down the tunnel, looking enraged with everyone in his path.
In 18 appearances, the 36-year-old has eight goals and three assists, but his homecoming has fallen far short of expectations, owing to the players’ desire to return the club to its glory days.
But a lot of the blame is being placed on the former Real Madrid forward for how he is behaving on and off the field, and Trevor Sinclair believes Manchester City will be relieved they didn’t manage to sign him in the summer.
As Everton ace Lucas Digne responds to a transfer offer, Newcastle’submit a swap deal bid for him.’
Former City forward Sinclair said on talkSPORT: “I’m starting to think Manchester City dodged a bullet by not signing Cristiano Ronaldo, I really believe that.”
“I think you look at some of the young players at Manchester United who are really struggling for form, like [Jadon] Sancho and [Marcus] Rashford.
I know Rashford has a lot of experience, but they’re having a hard time putting in good performances.”
“But can you blame Ronaldo for that?” Sinclair was asked. “If you put Ronaldo in that City side, he’d score a bunch of goals.”
“Of course, you can,” he replied.
You’re a footballer, so know your role.
The football club has enlisted your services.
At times, it’s best to keep your mouth shut.
That is the best course of action.
He’s causing a lot of problems at the football club, I believe.”
After Pep Guardiola’s side failed to persuade Tottenham Hotspur to sell striker Harry Kane despite a £100 million bid, United appeared to have hijacked City’s deal to sign Ronaldo from Juventus over the summer.
Sinclair went on to say that he wouldn’t be surprised if the Red Devils’ manager at the time, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, was fired.
