Cristiano Ronaldo to Liverpool claim made as transfer rumours continue
Gabby Agbonlahor has insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo would play for Liverpool ‘if he could’, declaring that the forward has no loyalties to his current club.
The 37-year-old is still yet to feature under new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag, adding to a growing opinion that the striker will leave Old Trafford this summer.
Ronaldo returned to the Premier League last August and helped his side reach the Champions League Round of 16 as well as finding the net 24 times in 38 appearances.
However, with the former Real Madrid man’s future current up in the air, pundit Agbonlahor has insisted how he could see Ronaldo make the switch to Merseyside, despite the fierce rivalry between the two clubs.
Liverpool could sign former Manchester United star if forced to complete unwanted transfer
Considering in Alisson Liverpool boast an undisputed first-choice goalkeeper for both club and country, one of the very best shot-stoppers in the world and the reigning Premier League Golden Glove winner, it’s been a curious summer for the Reds so far between the sticks.
The Brazilian started the summer in goal as Liverpool were thrashed 4-0 by Manchester United, with the lasting image of that pre-season outing being the sight of compatriot Fred chipping the Reds’ number one. Replaced at half-time against the Red Devils, he hasn’t played since because of abdominal injury.
After missing Liverpool’s friendly defeat to Red Bull Salzburg, Jurgen Klopp confirmed on Thursday afternoon that Alisson will also sit out Saturday’s FA Community Shield against Manchester City at the King Power due to injury.
