Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo believes his former Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney should follow him to the Santiago BernabÃ©u.
Ronaldo, who left Old Trafford in the summer for a record Â£80million fee to complete a dream move to the Spanish giants, has impressed with Madrid scoring nine goals in seven games before suffering an ankle injury which has kept him on the sidelines for the past month.
And while he admits Rooney is unlikely to leave England any time soon, the Portuguese winger believes the 24-year-old would fit in at the Bernabeu.
“Wayne would be a sensation out here. I think we could do with Rooney to help us out,” Ronaldo told The Sun.
“He would be brilliant if he came. This is the ideal place for the world’s best players and there’s little doubt he is one of them.
“Wayne has all the skill and determination you need to make a fine career here.
“He has shown just how good he is over the last few years in England.
“And there’s no doubt he would be the same sort of player in Spain. It would be lovely to see him here one day at Real Madrid.
“I realise it would take a lot for him to move from England.
“He loves the country, he loves Manchester and he is a Liverpool boy. And United is a good club for him. But you never know what could happen in the future.”
