Rooney Reacts To Cristiano Ronaldo’s Link To Man City

Rooney Reacts To Cristiano Ronaldo’s Link To Man City 

Wayne Rooney has dismissed reports former teammate and Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo will move to rivals Manchester City.

Rooney and Ronaldo played 209 games together at Manchester United between 2004-2009, winning three Premier League titles and a Champions League crown as they secured legendary status at the club.


However, Ronaldo now looks increasingly likely to tarnish his revered reputation at Old Trafford, with reports emerging that he has agreed personal terms with City, and Juventus want him off their wage bill.

Rooney, who’s now Derby boss, would still be shocked to see the move happen, saying: “It’s an interesting one but I can’t see it,” he told talkSPORT.

“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. I can’t see it, but it’s football so you never know.”

There have been seven players to play for both Manchester sides in the Premier League era, many of them high-profile, but Rooney believes Ronaldo is different to those before.

“There have been a few that have done it but no one at Cristiano’s level,” Rooney said. “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.”

The former United and Everton striker was asked about moving to rivals, having himself been heavily linked to a switch to Man City back in 2010.

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

  • Lol Rooney Ronaldo has one of the greatest Legacy at Man UTD yet it is literally never Appreciated or commended hence he took it to Real and become a Football God which had you guys appreciated him better he may have stayed and gave you that Legacy and 3 Champs league in a row.

    I follow the English Premier League and the kind of Seasons Ronaldo spent there he should be glorified more than he is which is literally NEVER!!!.. So in Ronaldo’s mind I don’t see why he wouldn’t consider Man City when the English Media and Fans treated him with so much disdain after he Always dealt with England In major Tournaments, Killing the myth that Rooney was Manchester UTD Golden boy in that period when Rooney signed in 2004 also coupled with his perceived arrogance and leaving Man U for Real Madrid. Yep CR7 do you and go to Man City its the kind off story they want so you can be hated more so give it to them. Stupid yeye English Media.
