Former Newcastle striker, Alan Shearer, has claimed Manchester United played Manchester City like mugs over the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer.

According to him, there was no way United would have allowed Ronaldo to join their rivals.

Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford after 12 years this summer, but at one point he appeared to be heading to the Etihad.

Having made it clear to Juventus he wanted to leave, City began talks with Ronaldo’s agents in order to bring him back to the Premier League.

But once United became aware of City’s strong interest they acted quickly to get a deal over the line with Ronaldo choosing to return to his old club.

“They (Man United) played City like mugs. He was never going to Man City. Man United could never, ever have allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to go to Man City.

“I know the Man United owners are on a sticky wicket at the moment but that would have been the end of them.

“I just thought he was never going to go to Manchester City,” Shearer told BBC’s Match of the Day Top 10 podcast.
