To be fair, saying Ronaldo is the greatest footballer to have played for United, is quite a fair opinion.
He was a complete nancy, but I dont hold that against him when judging his ability.I wouldn't call paying up to approximately £30m a bargain. A bargain if looking at the big picture, but I'd call Ronaldo a bargain, same with Vidic and Evra, but I wouldn't class Rooney as a bargain.
Back to Ronaldo, how many other players have got the world player of the year award whilst at United? Scored over 40+ goals in one season from the wing? Sensational player. Achieved more than most players have done at United.
He's a sensational player. If he had Rooney's personality which appeals towards the fans then you'd all put him in your top 3.
Best > Ronaldoronaldo or best
I didn't mention them player because I like them more than Ronaldo, I mentioned them because I think they were greater Utd players. I'd take Ruud over Ole everytime even though I far prefer Ole.So would I, but it doesn't mean that they are the better player. I'd take Ole over Ruud, but Ruud is the better player, but I just love Ole. So it's pointless thinking like that.
Ronaldo at Manchester United, is better than Rooney at Manchester United (hopefully so far).
