Former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to the club was “a short-term fix for the fans and the share price”.
Keane stated this on Monday night, after Ronaldo scored his 18th Premier League goal in the 3-0 drubbing of Brentford.
However, Keane insists there is “no logic” to any possibility of letting Ronaldo leave Old Trafford.
“It [Ronaldo’s signing] was a short-term fix, for the fans, for the share price. But he has still scored the goals.
“I just think with the goals that he has got, his performances, warrants staying at the club. But Manchester United have to get players around him, they have to get other strikers in, there has to be competition for places.
“If the leading goalscorer, the man you are depending on, is 37 years of age then that is certainly not good but I would certainly be holding onto Ronaldo,” Keane told Monday Night Football.
