How Manchester United could line up under Erik ten Hag with Cristiano Ronaldo

Interesting times are ahead for Manchester United and their supporters certainly have reason to get excited once again after what has been a dismal season. Erik ten Hag will step into the hot seat after finishing this campaign with Ajax and attentions have already turned to his potential recruits.

Number one priority for United is a top-level holding midfielder. They missed out on that position last summer but did manage to bring in Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo has finally ended the Lionel Messi debate back at Manchester United

Just consider the facts: in his first season back in England after 12 years where he turned 37, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 23 goals in 36 games, all of them in the Premier League and Champions League.

Ronaldo ended 2006-07 – his first great season with Manchester United – on 23 goals. Ronaldo has four games to match his tally of 26 for 2008-09.

The tedious Ronaldo-Messi debate was put to bed long ago. Ronaldo has conquered football’s three major leagues. Messi fled across the border to the Ligue 1 procession and hitherto has a paltry nine goals for Paris Saint-Germain.
