🔴 Wayne Rooney challenges Manchester United

Manchester United’s wholly-loved legend Wayne Rooney has said the club’s challenge for the English Premier League is not really negotiable this season.

Rooney has perhaps been aware that the Red Devils just didn’t have enough to dismantle the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea, but with Cristiano Ronaldo arriving this season, it changes everything regarding a shot at the league title.

“An enormous one. He’s one of the best players in the world,” Rooney answered via the Mirror on whether Ronaldo offers a big impact or not.

“We saw, in the game against Ireland, what he does. Last couple of minutes, he scores a couple of goals, great headers, so he can have a massive impact on the Premier League.

So are United going to go for the 2021/22 league title? Rooney says it is mandatory.

“I think United are finally ready to go and challenge for the title, and I really feel they have to, this year.

“So Cristiano’s going to be a very big player, I think he’s going to have big moments in the season and I’m sure he’ll score a lot of goals,” the five-time Premier League champion concluded.
