Watch: Neville and Keane hail Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Man Utd return


Former Manchester United stars Gary Neville and Roy Keane couldn’t hide their delight when asked about Cristiano Ronaldo’s imminent return. 

Ronaldo spent six years at Old Trafford, scoring 118 goals in 292 appearances before completing an £80million move to Real Madrid in 2009.

The Portugal international took his game to another level in Madrid and then scored over 100 goals in all competitions during his three years at Juventus.

Despite being linked with a controversial move to Manchester City, he agreed on personal terms with United and has now completed his medical.

Neville and Keane both played alongside Ronaldo during his first spell at the club and are glad to see the Portugal international heading back to Old Trafford.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s a world-class player. The pluses and minuses, I just see the hunger and desires there. It’s not a payday for him. The guy’s worth fortunes,” Keane said on Sky Sports.

“We saw in the Euros won the Golden Boot, the World Cup’s in a year and a half, that’s an incentive for him. He’s only coming back to Man Utd to win stuff.”
