Manchester United are likely to bring into the club the Brazilian and PSG superstar, Neymar to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford if the 37-year-old Portuguese striker continues to insist on leaving the club this summer.
Cristiano Ronaldo, born 5 February 1985 is a Portuguese professional footballer who returns to play as a forward for his former Premier League club Manchester United.
He is the captain of the Portugal national team, mostly considered the best player in the world, and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. Ronaldo has won five Ballon d’Or awards and four European Golden Shoes, the most by a European player.
He has won 32 trophies in his career, including seven league titles, five UEFA Champions Leagues, and the UEFA European Championship. He holds the records for most appearances (183), goals (140), and assists (42) in the Champions League, goals in the European Championship (14), international goals (117), and international appearances by a European (189).
He is one of the few players to have made over 1,100 professional career appearances, and has scored over 800 official senior career goals for club and country.
It all started well when Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United last August, 12 years after leaving the club for Real Madrid. The team were unbeaten in the Premier League and heightened hopes of challenging for and winning the title.
Unfortunately, nine months after, United have just heightened their worst season in Premier League history, finishing sixth with 58 points, 35 behind league-winners Manchester City.
Manchester United plans to acquire Neymar
Manchester United need to do well this season as all eyes are upon them to redeem their reputation as they couldn’t finish in the top four in the Premier League last season.
Moreover, Cristiano Ronaldo remains one of the best players in the history of football judging by his great abilities, achievements, and football technique, hence, a player who is in a league of his competence should replace him at Old Trafford.
Seemingly, Neymar seems to be a great choice and a better replacement for Ronaldo as the club is reportedly contemplating acquiring him this summer.
Neymar junior, born February 5 1992 is a Brazilian football superstar who plays as a winger for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazil national team. As a result of his football prowess, he is considered a versatile player who can play as either a central striker, second striker, winger, or occasionally as an attacking midfielder.
A prolific goalscorer and renowned playmaker, he is regarded as one of the best players in the world with the belief that he will join the likes of Messi and Ronaldo in the list of Ballon d’Or award winners.
Neymar has bagged 102 goals and 61 assists in 145 games for PSG. And his career record of 276 goals and 172 assists in 465 games makes for really impressive reading. His recent outstanding performance to help Paris Saint Germain win the Trophee des Champions on Sunday landed the club its 15th times winning the trophy.
Neymar produced a wonderful display, aside the stunning two goals he scored, he made Messi’s goal opener after playing the pass for the football legend to score. The Brazilian role in PSG cannot be over emphasised as he is not doubt a great player and a better replacement for Ronaldo to bring Manchester United back to the top.
