As eager as Manchester United fans would likely be to see Cristiano Ronaldo reunite with Wayne Rooney and mentor Anthony Martial, the price tag on Ronaldo (estimated at £80m or more) would likely be way too high for a player about to step out of his athletic prime.
Believe it or not, while almost nobody on Earth has the accolades of Ronaldo, there are still some better options for Man United to pursue as a transfer target. From youngsters like Neymar and Harry Kane to less expensive veterans like Zlatan, Man United can land the high-quality player they want while getting a lot more value for their transfer fee.
