    The Manchester United youngster and Argentina prospect has always insisted Cristiano Ronaldo is his biggest influence in football.

    Despite his controversial exit from Manchester United, the spectre of Cristiano Ronaldo is still hovering in the Red Devils squad.

    Promising youngsters such as Antony and Alejandro Garnacho will not hesitate to occasionally flag Ronaldo symbols to cap their esteem admiration of the Portuguese legend.

    In the FA Cup game against Everton, Alejandro Garnacho came on in the 71st minute, replacing Anthony Martial in the 3-1 victory at Old Trafford.

    He is yet to make his debut for the club due to a two-game ban being enforced by FIFA as well as the club being unable to register him.

    The Saudi Pro League has a rule on the number of foreign players a club can have, and Al Nassr are at its limit which means they have to axe one to make room for Ronaldo.
