Wayne Rooney has explained why he doesn’t see former team-mate, Cristiano Ronaldo, in Manchester City’s shirt any time soon.
Rooney, himself a United legend who won three Premier League titles alongside Ronaldo, stated this while reacting to multiple reports linking the Portuguese star to City.
‘I think Cristiano has got a very good legacy at Manchester United and I know how proud he is as a player and a person,’ Rooney told newsmen.
‘I can’t see [him joining City], but it’s football so you never know. There have been a few that have done it but no one at Cristiano’s level. Obviously Peter Schmeichel and Andy Cole, but I just can’t see that as an option for him really.
‘Financially of course he doesn’t need to do it. I think it’s more likely that it’s PSG he goes to.
Rooney also emphasized that under no circumstances would he himself play for Manchester City.
‘I think you need to do what’s right for you as a person, for your family,’ he said. ‘Everyone knows I could never play for Liverpool or Manchester City. That’s obvious but everyone’s different.
‘I think people move to clubs where they don’t really want to but from a financial point of view that might be the only option they have, so I might get it from some people’s point of view.
‘But in terms of myself that just wouldn’t be an option.’
