‘It won’t be enough’ — former Premier League star sends warning to Manchester United

Former Aston Villa star Gabriel Agbonlahor has warned Manchester United that the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo won’t be enough for them to win the league.

United have started the season in fine form with two wins and a draw, and the club signed Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

Despite the massive additions to the team, including the five time Ballon d’Or winner, many still doubt Manchester United’s title credentials.

And for Agbonlahor, Manchester United won’t win the league, as he believes that Chelsea and Manchester City will fight for the title.

“But will it be enough to win Man United the Premier League title [signing Ronaldo]? No, I don’t think it will. I still think they are missing a key part of the jigsaw – a midfielder that can control games. Jorginho controls games for Chelsea. Ilkay Gundogan does for Manchester City. That’s a big part of football, it’s not just star players,” he told TalkSPORT.

“For me, it will be a straight fight between Chelsea and Manchester City for the title this season. Jack [Grealish] offers City a different dimension and gives their squad better quality. Yes, they could’ve done with another forward but Ferran Torres has shown that he’s a striker in the making.

“You’ve also got Gabriel Jesus who’s looked much better this season as well so I think City have had a decent window. However, for me, Chelsea are the strongest team and I think they will just edge out City and become champions.”
