If Manchester United’s £80million move for Cristiano Ronaldo goes through, it could be the bargain of the century.
Not only would you get one of the most dangerous players in the world, but it could have a massive effect on how Wayne Rooney plays. Almost the forgotten man of Old Trafford, Rooney’s career could take a turn for the better if the transfer of Ronaldo happens.
It's no secret Rooney is not in good form, but if the re-signing of Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo occurs, it could revitalise Rooney's career. This would surely make the England striker think twice about handing in a transfer request.
With Chelsea already tabling two bids, Rooney could be on his way to London. Yet United are adamant Rooney is going nowhere, but as usual, rumours have been flying around.
It's well known that Rooney and Ronaldo love playing together. Ever since Ronaldo signed for Madrid in a world-record deal, Rooney has never quite been the same, but if the winger makes the move back to Manchester, I’m sure this would have an influence on Rooney’s thinking.
Ultimately, paying the £80million could be like buying two of the best players in the world - not only signing Ronaldo, but having a huge influence on whether or not they keep Rooney, and how well Rooney plays. This could be Rooney’s return to greatness.
