Arsenal told they will win the Premier League title if they sign Man United star in January

Arsenal told they will win the Premier League title if they sign Man United star in January

Piers Morgan believes Cristiano Ronaldo would propel Arsenal to the Premier League championship and that there is little likelihood of his returning to Manchester United following the World Cup.

The Portuguese forward sat down with Morgan for a 90-minute interview that will air later this week, but some lines and bits have already been revealed in which he criticizes United’s hierarchy and says he will “never respect” Erik ten Hag.

Ronaldo was dismissed by the Dutchman and fined two weeks’ salary for refusing to be substituted against Tottenham last month, and his latest comments will certainly be met with derision at Old Trafford.

Morgan has consistently criticized Ten Hag’s handling of Ronaldo and continues to believe the 37-year-old is the best player in the world, even suggesting that his favorite club, Arsenal, could buy the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to enhance their title chances.

When one user implied that Morgan would not be so keen to see Ronaldo playing up top every week for the Gunners, he replied: “Yes [I would], actually.

“He’s exactly what we need. Cristiano and Gabriel Jesus would take us to the title.”

A portion of Ronaldo’s interview was published in Morgan’s column for  The Sun, with the former GMB host speculating that the Portuguese superstar could not return to United after his explosive interview.

He wrote: ‘He wants people to understand what he has experienced this year, and to hear it directly from him, not through ill-informed rumours.

‘The interview, as viewers will see, is jaw-dropping because we so rarely see or hear him like this.

‘I’m not sure how this saga ends, other than it’s hard to see how Cristiano Ronaldo can return to Manchester United after this.’

He continued: ‘He’s a very smart, likeable guy who has given a lot of careful thought to doing this interview. I’ve felt the frustration and anger building inside him for many months.

‘Ronaldo takes his football very seriously — and winning even more seriously. You don’t get to have all the trophies and records he has without possessing a ferociously strong and resilient mentality, a relentless work ethic, a stupefyingly intense competitive spirit, and an unshakeable self-confidence that you’re No 1.

‘For someone like Ronaldo to suddenly find himself at a club that isn’t competing for top silverware, and where he has been dropped, benched, snubbed, scolded and even last month, for the first time in his career, suspended, has hit him hard.

‘Not least because last season he was the club’s leading scorer with 24 goals. He doesn’t expect any special treatment, but he does expect to be treated with the respect he feels he has earned.’
