Cristiano Ronaldo urged to snub move to Manchester United in favour of joining this Premier League club

Watford striker Troy Deeney wants Juventus and former Manchester United attacker Cristiano Ronaldo to snub a move to Old Trafford to join Wolves.

The Portuguese has been tipped to leave the Italian Champions at the end of the season, and has already been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

But Deeney thinks he will be better off at Wolves due to the Portuguese connection at the Midland club.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Watford captain Troy Deeney said: “I was looking at a club like Wolves with the Portugal connection. That would probably work.

“Whoever is getting him is getting an unbelievable talent. If he is available, I would be surprised if there wasn’t a top ten club trying to sign him.

“I like Wolves. I think Wolves are creating something there with the players that they have where they will push for the top six in the next few years.”

Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is also representing several Portuguese players at Wolves: Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Rui Patricio.
