Nobody in the PL fancied Ronaldo?

£105M and massive wages for a 33 year old who is only going to get slower ? What do you think ?

Though I am surprised Woodard and Mourinho didn't bite

Well I agree, but Man Utd seem to constantly be connected to him, surprised they weren't in for him

It's almost as if the journalists have no idea what they are talking about and just make stuff up to fill column inches.

Ronaldo is one of the best players who has ever played the game (I couldn’t care less about GOAT or sheep talk, which is generally pathetic) - but he’s not the right player for us at this time.

The money involved is astonishing. But he wouldn’t have much of a commercial effect on us, but would for a club like Juventus. Makes sense for them not for us.

He’s already conquered the PL, why come back? The PL is so demanding, he’s nearly 34, no doubt he would be an excellent player next year, but he wouldn’t be able to play in the PL for the next 3-4 years, he could do this in Italy.

He’s a supreme goal scorer but needs other players to do the running for him, we are not the right team for him, and he’s not right for us.

Thank goodness Utd’s head not heart was involved in this.

Just watching the Belgium game, there seems to be quite a decent player called Pogba, maybe you should sign him, but it might be confusing to have two Pogbas in the squad

I saw him on the news earlier. Very good news. Why would anyone in their right mind put a dislike to the 'you tube' post.

Meh

Never been so uninterested in a United squad pre season. Is there any chance this week change before Friday? Unlikely.

Not interested in the team or the managers silly mood swings. Plenty of English teams seem to be wanting to do this summer in the cheap, so it's City's to lose again isn't it?

Maureen looks and sounds even less happy this season (if that’s remotely possible) I think he’s fallen out of love with the game at the minute.

Agreed; he’s been miserable for a while (since Madrid probably) but he’s showing no signs at all of positivity, on the pitch or off it. He doesn’t need to be as clownish as Klopp every time the camera is on him, but the opposite is even more tiring and draining.

It’s been an age since Sir Alex retired, but I can’t really see things improving for us for a while yet - it’s felt for a while like we’re on the wrong track with Mourinho, but if City are going to be as dominate this season as last then maybe we have time yet to get it right with the next direction we move in (fourth time lucky?). The bigger pressure will arise if Liverpool manage to win the title this season and we’re still miles off

I'm sure a club of our size could stretch to an extra £200 a week

Ha ha, I should have said £20-00. However £200,000-00 per week extra is obscene for anybody, let alone a useless player.

I'm guessing he's after parity with Sanchez then?
Who'd have thought that signing might cause a problem?


He's already agreed terms with Barca, apparently.
