'I'd love him to stay in the Premier League’ – Gary Neville hopes Cristiano Ronaldo joins English club after Man Utd axe | The Sun

GARY NEVILLE would love Cristiano Ronaldo to stay in the Premier League following his Manchester United exit.

Ronaldo left the Red Devils last month following his bombshell interview that he was unhappy at the club.

The striker's future is uncertain amid links to Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Nassr but Neville is hopeful he will stay in the Prem.

He told Sky Sports: "I hope he finds happiness and a club that will get him into the team and getting him scoring the goals that we know he can score – he'll score 20 goals in 30 matches wherever he plays, maybe 20 goals in 20 matches, knowing him.

"But how does he see the end of his career playing out? Does he see the end of his career playing out in lesser leagues, or does he see it playing out at one of the major leagues and continuing at that level?

"I hope it's the latter, and I hope he can find a club in then major leagues, even the Premier League.

"I'd love him to stay in the Premier League at a club that can have him up front and we can watch him every week because that's what we want to see, we want to see him playing."

Ronaldo wanted to leave United last summer to play Champions League football.

But several clubs including Chelsea, Napoli and Atletico Madrid rejected the chance to sign him.

And it appears there is little interest in the Portuguese superstar at the top level.
