Manchester United Transfer News Roundup: Cristiano Ronaldo move a failure, says former player; Jesse Lingard eager to join Newcastle United, and more

Manchester United are preparing to face Middlesbrough on Friday in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Red Devils saw off stiff competition from Aston Villa in the previous round, prevailing by a solitary goal.

Meanwhile, Kleberson believes Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford has been a failure so far. Elsewhere, Jesse Lingard is eager to join Newcastle United this month.

On that note, here’s a look at the key Manchester United transfer stories as on 31st January 2022.

Former Manchester United midfielder Kleberson believes Cristiano Ronaldo’s homecoming has been a failure. Interestingly, the Brazilian arrived at the club on the same day in 2003 as a then-teenaged Ronaldo did.

The Portuguese attacker returned to Old Trafford last summer, hoping to add to his legacy at the club. However, the Red Devils have endured a difficult time this season.

Ronaldo has contributed in front of goal, but the team collectively has struggled to impress. Speaking to The Daily Star, Kleberson pointed out that it has been a new challenge for the Portuguese at Old Trafford.

“To be honest, the Ronaldo experiment has been a bit of a failure, so far – especially because of the level of player he is and how of late he has impacted the team. When you look at the things he can bring to the club and what he brings to the fans, it’s not been amazing. The current United team haven’t played well together of late,” said Kleberson.

“It’s a tough time for Ronaldo to have returned to the club. Both him and United have a huge history together. Players like Ronaldo come back to a club after time away, and it’s a totally different style of play and atmosphere to what they remember before. The club isn’t the same as under Sir Alex Ferguson, and it must be challenging for him to comprehend that,” continued Kleberson.

Ronaldo has scored 14 times across all competitions this season.
