there were plenty saying he was past it (esp after he signed for utd) - clearly he isntIt wasn't the point. The club wasn't prepared to pay his monthly salary and smash the wage structure in the dressing room to pieces. Quite right, too. As for on the pitch: Ronaldo would have worked for us, as he will for United. But he is a short-term fix — something that United have been sucked into since we won our first PL title, and something which we generally avoid. Like the People's Republic of China, we plan for the medium to long term.
Kane would have been great for four or even five years. £150,000,000 would have been ridiculous. But actually I think that was just Levy's way of saying he wasn't going to let him go at all. Kane backed himself into a corner with a stupid contract. I very much regret his absence, but not Ronaldo's.
Kane, though, will regret his not wearing a sky-blue shirt more than I will.
