EPL: Perfect Signing – Arsenal Told To Recruit Ex-manchester United Star, Ronaldo

Published

on

Former Arsenal goalkeeper, David Seaman, has urged the Gunners to sign former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

Seaman believes it would be a perfect signing if Arsenal brought Ronaldo to Emirates Stadium.

Ronaldo is presently a free agent after his contract with Man United was terminated this week.

The Portugal captain’s contract was terminated days after his explosive interview with broadcaster Piers Morgan in which he slammed Man United, the Glazer family, Erik ten Hag, among others.

“Ronaldo is far from done and he would be perfect for Arsenal,” Seaman told TalkTV.

“I would applaud him [for the explosive interview] because he is obviously talking the truth. A lot of the stuff he came out with is not the stuff we have not heard.

“We have heard a lot of other experienced players moaning and criticising Man United for the way the ground is and the training.

“That shocked me and that should not be happening. He has been all around the world and seen how everywhere has progressed and he comes back to his beloved Man United and nothing has changed.”
