EPL: Wilshere speaks on Ronaldo joining Arsenal from Man Utd


Former Arsenal manager, Jack Wilshere, has said he doesn’t think Mikel Arteta would take Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.

Ronaldo looks set to leave Old Trafford following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

Morgan has claimed that the 37-year-old would help to carry the Gunners to title glory if he were to head for Emirates Stadium.

But Wilshere, who is now an academy coach in north London, is not having that and is not convinced that a Spanish coach working with a happy squad would be eager to acquire a divisive character either.

Wilshere has told talkSPORT of Ronaldo: “I still think he would bring something for the younger players to look at, see how he lives and see how he does things. I still think there’s a benefit to have him.”

Pressed further on whether those at Arsenal would want the Portugal international, the former England star added: “I don’t think Mikel would have him. No [I wouldn’t have him either]. Obviously what he has done is bad, but he doesn’t have a track record of that. He stayed at Madrid for years.”
