Ronaldo must be regretting not signing for Man City, says Barnes

Liverpool great, John Barnes, has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo will be regretting not signing for Manchester City last summer.

The Portuguese forward was in advanced talks to move to the Etihad Stadium in August before making a last-minute switch to re-join Manchester United.

“His goal record is great for a 37-year-old, but I think if he had come to City, he’d probably have 25 goals now, because the good players there would have found him a lot easier,” Barnes told the Mirror.

“They would have had the vision and the technique to put him in, whereas I think some of the players at United simply don’t have that vision to put him in on goal.

“Then there’s the other argument that his legs have gone and he’s not got the pace he had four of five years ago.

“I think what’s probably got him frustrated is that he’s not had the same service he’s been used to in the past and people haven’t seen him.”
