Wayne Rooney provide shocking prediction on Cristiano Ronaldo's future amid uncertainty

Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival at Manchester United this season has not 'worked,' according to Wayne Rooney.

Last summer, Ronaldo made a stunning return to Old Trafford. This season, the forward has 18 goals in 33 games in all competitions, although United's choice to bring him back to the club has been questioned on several occasions.

 

United were anticipated to challenge for the Premier League crown this season, but they've been forced to competing for Champions League football instead, and their chances of finishing in the top four now appear unlikely following Saturday's stalemate with Leicester. 

 

On Monday night, Rooney was asked about his former teammate, and he conceded that his return 'hasn't worked.'

The English Legend and United icon also expressed his desire for the team to prioritize younger players in order to move forward.

 

"At the moment, you'd have to say no [it hasn't worked]," Rooney told Sky Sports. "He's already scored significant goals in the Champions League this season, including a hat-trick against Tottenham.

 

"However, I believe that, in order to lift Manchester United in the next two or three years, you must go with younger, more eager players. 

Certainly Cristiano is getting on a little and he's obviously not the player he was when he was in his 20s.
