Ronaldo wouldn’t join Man City – Rooney


Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney does not believe Cristiano Ronaldo would join Manchester City.

Rooney and Ronaldo were part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United side that won the Premier League, Champions League, and other trophies from 2005 to 2009.

While Ronaldo eventually left for Real Madrid, Rooney stayed at United to achieve more success.

Ronaldo is now being linked with a move from Juventus to City in the final days of the transfer window.

“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,” Rooney told talkSPORT.

“I can’t see [him joining City], but it’s football so you never know. There have been a few that have done it 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.”

Rooney added: “I think you need to do what’s right for you as a person, for your family.

“Everyone knows I could never play for Liverpool or Manchester City. That’s obvious but everyone’s different.

“I think people move to clubs where they don’t really want to but from a financial point of view that might be the only option they have, so I might get it from some people’s point of view.

“But in terms of myself that just wouldn’t be an option.”
