Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Roy Keane picked Cristiano Ronaldo as one of his top three Premier League players this term alongside Kevin de Bruyne and Erling Haaland.
He said: “De Bruyne, Haaland, and Ronaldo. De Bruyne obviously, I’ve played midfield, I think he does week in week out, consistently I think he’s fantastic. What Haaland has done already, obviously he’s new to the Premier League.”
“Amazing what he could achieve within the next few years, particularly playing in a really good team like City, working with obviously Pep (Guardiola). And you have to give Ronaldo credit, scoring last night (Sunday), 700 goals in his career. Amazing.”

Cristiano Ronaldo was superb in his homecoming season for United last term, registering 24 goals from 39 appearances across all competitions. However, the Portuguese has managed just one Premier League goal this season.
Although the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has openly wanted to leave the Old Trafford last summer, a deal could not materialize as United and new manager Erik ten Hag insisted he’s part of the plans for this season. So far, the 37-year-old has only started one Premier League game for the Red Devils in a 4-0 defeat to Brighton earlier in the season.
