Manchester United Transfer News Roundup: Chelsea advised to sign Cristiano Ronaldo; Red Devils confirm Christian Eriksen arrival, and more

Manchester United are looking to strengthen their squad this summer. New manager Erik ten Hag is expected to help the club get back into the top four of the Premier League next season.

Meanwhile, former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has advised Chelsea to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. Elsewhere, the Red Devils have announced the arrival of Christian Eriksen at Old Trafford.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the top Manchester United transfer stories on July 15, 2022:


Paul Merson advises Chelsea to sign Cristiano Ronaldo

Paul Merson has advised Chelsea to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer. The Portuguese has informed United that he wants to leave this year. Ronaldo’s current contract with the Red Devils expires next summer and the Blues have been linked with a move for him this year.

In his column for The Daily Star, Merson said Ronaldo could help the London giants finish higher than third next season.

“Chelsea will not finish higher than third next season unless they sign a world-class striker. And that is why they should change their minds about Cristiano Ronaldo because he is a player ideally suited to fill the role that is still out there,” Merson wrote.

He continued:

“Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Nathan Ake are all good players and they would all help Chelsea get better straight away. But they really need help up front, because Kai Havertz isn’t a striker for me and doesn’t guarantee 20 goals a season. And Ronaldo would certainly do that.”

Merson went on to say that Ronaldo would thrive at Stamford Bridge.

“Chelsea dominate practically every game they play and they play on the edge of the other team’s penalty area. You have Ben Chilwell and Reece James, two of the best crossers in the world, who can put the ball in the box. Who is the best finisher in the world if you can put the ball in the box with quality? Ronaldo!” Merson wrote.

Merson added:

“Chelsea should go 100% with him. They play a certain way. That’s why Romelu Lukaku fought – because there’s no room to run into. But Ronaldo would thrive. At Manchester United he had to start from the halfway line to score a goal because they don’t dominate. But that’s not his game anymore.”

He concluded:

“At Chelsea he wouldn’t have to hit three players to see the goal. Put Ronaldo on that team with James and Chilwell whipping balls in and who’s going to stop him?”

Manchester United have secured their second signing of the summer with Christian Eriksen joining Old Trafford following a Bosman move.

The Danish midfielder became a free agent this summer after his contract with Brentford expired. The Red Devils snooped on the player and convinced him to get involved in new manager Erik ten Hag’s project.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Eriksen expressed his delight at the completion of the move.

“Manchester United is a special club and I can’t wait to get started. I’ve had the privilege of playing at Old Trafford many times, but doing it in the United red shirt will be an incredible feeling. I’ve seen Erik’s work at Ajax and know the level of detail and preparation that he and his staff put in every day,” said Eriksen.

He added:

“It’s clear he’s a fantastic coach. After speaking to him and learning more about his vision and the way he wants the team to play, I’m even more excited for the future. I still have big ambitions in the game; There is a lot I know I can achieve and this is the perfect place to continue my journey.”
