Andy Townsend has tipped Manchester City to sign current Juventus star, and ex-Man United hero, Cristiano Ronaldo in a stunning swoop. Ronaldo often came up against the Sky Blues before the glory era of Sheikh Mansour’s takeover began.
Sir Alex Ferguson snapped up the forward from Sporting Lisbon during the early 2000s,. Recently, despite the last few seasons having delivered goals galore, Pep Guardiola’s side have struggled for the cutting edge that they possessed in previous seasons.
talkSPORT pundit Townsend now urging the club to snap up a striker who would supposedly bag a 25-goal season back in the Premier League.
“He’s unbelievable in the air, which we’ve seen in a Juventus shirt already,” explained Townsend. “If he became available and Juve wanted out on him and Man City needed goals for their team then I don’t think you should hesitate in going to get Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s 35 and I still think he’s got 18 months in him. If he came to Man City and the way they play, I think he could go there and get 25 in his first season.”
