Retired Arsenal Attacking Midfielder, Paul Merson has Jumped on the ongoing debate surrounding the Return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United.

It is no longer news that Portuguese Striker, Cristiano Ronaldo has made his way back into the United Set-up, signing from Juventus for a fee of €15m.

The addition of Ronaldo into the Star-studded Manchester United Squad will serve as a huge Boost to the team's Chances of Winning silverwares this Season.

Ronaldo is no Stranger at Manchester United, the Player First Joined the Club as an 18 years old, Signing from Sporting Lisbon in 2003 and straight away he began to make a name for himself at the English Club. Ronaldo's First spell at United was filled with lots of Memories and Excitement. As a youngster he thrilled the fans with lots of skills, tricks and Amazing Goals. 

Ronaldo Left Manchester United in 2009 as a League Winner, Champions League Winner and also a Ballon D'or winner. He Departed Old Trafford for Real Madrid having scored 118 goals and Registered 69 assists in 292 games. 

After 12 years of his Departure the Striker is back and his return has raised some questions pertaining to his Ability to Perform as he used to while he was in his Twenties. 

Paul Merson, the former Arsenal attacker who played 273 games for the Gunners, scoring 60 goals doesn't think that the Cristiano of today can be as good as the Ronaldo every one Knew at United from 2003-2009.

“If Cristiano Ronaldo wins the league at Manchester United it will be the biggest thing he’s ever done in football." Paul Merson said as per thesportreview.

“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.

“I said on Sky the other day that Ronaldo is half the player he was. United fans don’t like it. But that’s just a fact. He’s not going to beat three players with a stepover and bend it into the top corner any more.”

“Call me a pessimist but I don’t think United would even have tried to sign Ronaldo if Manchester City hadn’t come in for him first. They just didn’t want him going to City.

“If United wanted Ronaldo so badly why weren’t they on the phone to Juventus all summer trying to do it? They weren’t first in line. City were.

“The kids at United should learn from him. If you can’t learn from a player like that, you’ve got a problem.”
