(HD Video) The 7 Iconic Performances of Cristiano Ronaldo At Manchester United
Cristiano Ronaldo returned to his former club Manchester United last summer. He joined from Juventus on a deal worth £13.5 millon.
Ronaldo signed a two-year contract with the Red Devils which sees him earn a whopping £385,000 per week in wages.
Things have not gone according to plan for Manchester United since the legendary Portuguese forward’s return last summer. They finished a lowly sixth in the Premier League table last term and failed to qualify for the Champions League.
But Ronaldo was their top scorer across all competitions, netting 24 times and providing three assists in 38 appearances. The 37-year-old was also named the ‘Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year’ for his exploits last term.
Mohamed Salah’s future was the subject of much speculation up until he put pen to paper on a new three-year contract with Liverpool earlier this summer.
Liverpool had to break their wage structure to keep hold of Salah, who has already become a Premier League legend after just five seasons with the club.
He was named the PFA Players’ Player of the Year for the 2021-22 season. The Egypt international was in sensational form last term, scoring 31 goals and providing 16 assists in 51 appearances across all competitions for Liverpool.
His contributions were crucial to Liverpool winning the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup. Salah also played a pivotal role in the Merseysiders’ run to the final of the Champions League, which they eventually lost to Real Madrid.
