Man United icon Cristiano Ronaldo
According to Bernardo Silva, Man United old boy Cristiano Ronaldo convinced him to move to England.
The playmaker told Four Four Two:
At the Confederations Cup I asked Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani about Manchester and they told me how much they enjoyed it here.
They said that all of the people were great and that it’s a real football city. The Premier League, too – a competitive league with full stadiums each week and everyone watching. They both said it would be a great move.
Bernardo Silva has appeared in every Man City match so far this season.
He’ll likely feature this Saturday for Pep Guardiola in the home match against Liverpool.
