Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo has backed his former side Manchester United to win the Premier League title this season, ahead of rivals Manchester City, The
United came from a goal behind to beat relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers 3-1 on Saturday to go back to the top of the table, with City travelling to Stamford Bridge today looking for the victory that will return them to top spot. Ronaldo has had close view of City so far this season, playing them twice in the Champions League, and believes that United have the best chance of winning the title this campaign.
The Portuguese international admitted he was still a huge fan of the Premier League and whilst he believed there were four teams in with a shout, the race would come down to the two Manchester clubs and United would come out on top.
Ronaldo said: “It (the Premier League) is the most competitive league in the world. I watch it in my house every week. I think United will do it this year and win their title back.”
Ronaldo was back in Manchester in midweek to face City at the Etihad Stadium, earning a point that knocked the Premier League champions out of the Champions League. The 27 year old stated that although Sir Alex Ferguson came to talk to him, as well as Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, they did not speak about a possible return to Old Trafford for Ronaldo. The United boss ruled out his return to Old Trafford because he would be too high of a value for United and many other top clubs.
