Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has given his take on Cristiano Ronaldo potentially joining Manchester City before the summer transfer window closes next week, as quoted in The Liverpool Echo.

ESPN have reported that Premier League champions City are keen on signing former Manchester United forward Ronaldo from Juventus in the summer transfer window.

City manager Pep Guardiola has reportedly already spoken to the Real Madrid legend on the phone, with Juventus willing to sell him.

Liverpool boss Klopp has given his take on Ronaldo potentially moving to Premier League rivals City.

The Liverpool Echo quotes Klopp as saying about Ronaldo: “I watch that like a supporter, I have no knowledge about it.

“But it’s not about me to judge that. If other clubs can do things for this, it’s not a business for the future. It’s for now if it happens and that’s how some clubs work. That’s fine.”

Impact on Premier League title race

If City are able to sign Ronaldo before the summer transfer window closes next week, then they will be clear favourites for the Premier League title this season.

Yes, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool all are strong teams, but Ronaldo is one of the greatest footballers of all time and is arguably the greatest goalscorer of his generation.

Ronaldo would make City very potent in attack and would make Guardiola’s side even better to watch.

Now, of course, Ronaldo’s potential arrival at the Etihad Stadium does not mean that City can take it easy.

The defending English champions will still have to turn up week after week to win matches.

However, Ronaldo’s presence in the team will make it much easier for City to win matches, both in England and in the Champions League.
