“Man Utd won’t win the Premier League with Cristiano Ronaldo” – pundit claims

Manchester United won’t win the Premier League despite signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, according to Paul Merson.

The former Arsenal midfielder wrote in his column for the Daily Star: “If Cristiano Ronaldo wins the league at Manchester United it will be the biggest thing he’s ever done in football.

“But he won’t because he’s not the same player any more – and if you’re not going to win the league with him, I don’t see the point in signing him.

“Harry Kane wins you the league. With the money they have spent on Jadon Sancho and Ronaldo, surely you try and get Kane? I think he would have gone there. United are the biggest club in the world.

“Signing Ronaldo is great for the fans. The king is back. But it frustrates me. You sell shirts with Ronaldo. You win the league with Kane.”
