Piers Morgan has revealed that he will have brought Cristiano Ronaldo to Arsenal if he was the Arsenal manager.
Ronaldo has scored 22 goals in 36 appearances since joining Manchester United from Juventus.
There were reports that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Manchester United if they fail to make the top four this season.
Arsenal is currently fourth on the League table ahead of Tottenham and United after beating Chelsea and Manchester United.
What was said
Speaking to talkSport, Morgan admitted that he had asked Ronaldo to join Arsenal.
‘When it comes down to money and owners and riches and banking, we’ve got the richest of all of them’.
‘Stan Kroenke has got £10billion, he’s married to a woman who has got even more in the Walmart heiress who has £15billion. He’s just bought a ranch for £750million, he can afford to buy a couple of strikers!
‘I had this conversation with him last week. I said, “Come to Arsenal”
‘The Arsenal and Manchester United thing is very interesting. On paper, United have far more talented players and far more experienced, talented players but they don’t have the right attitude.
‘The mental attitude is shocking. Whatever is going on in that club…if they didn’t have Ronaldo in the team they wouldn’t be winning, whereas Arsenal has young, hungry, really promising guys who have a great attitude. People like [Bukayo] Saka, [Emile] Smith Rowe, [Kieran] Tierney, and all of these guys.
‘That’s what’s encouraging. If you combined the United talent with our mentality then both clubs would be sorted.
‘I’m not even joking. I’d love to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Arsenal. If he’s not going to stay at United, I’d take him in a heartbeat.
‘I watched that game at the weekend and he was the best player on the pitch.
‘As a striker, when you watch Ronaldo’s movement and his goal scoring record at 37, I’d put Ronaldo at the front and let these kids learn from him.’
Danny Mills believes Eddie Nketiah could become the striker Arsenal needs
Over the 22 years, the old striker has impressed in recent Arsenal games.
With Alexandre Lacazette set to leave Arsenal at the end of the season, Mill urged the Gunner to make Eddie Nketiah their top striker
Nketiah’s contract expires at the end of the season. the former Leeds United defender believes Arsenal should extend the contract of Nketiah.
Speaking to Football insider, he said: ‘We’ve seen that he can score goals. But there’s obviously a reason why he doesn’t get a lot of game time. He came to Leeds and didn’t get much, and he’s had a couple of managers at Arsenal too.
‘You have to ask the question of his performances in training – is he really doing all that he can?
‘If you give him the opportunity, he can be brilliant in front of goal. That’s not hard to see. I think he just needs to knuckle down in training now, work a little bit harder – and look at his weaknesses.
‘He can make the shirt his own if he can do exactly what the manager wants of him.’
