Following Manchester United’s contract termination of Cristiano Ronaldo, rumours are flying about him moving to the Emirates. With interviewer Piers Morgan being the Arsenal rep, Ronaldo’s move to Arsenal could be on the cards. Saka reveals love and admiration for the Portuguese international.
Ronaldo to Arsenal?
Arsenal is not expected to bid for Ronaldo, but the rumours are causing many Gunners to react to the potential transfer of the Portuguese captain.
Bukayo Saka, at 21 years of age, could benefit from the presence of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner alongside him, with the Arsenal forward telling England’s official website of his childhood heroes: “Growing up, my favourite player was Cristiano Ronaldo. Everyone used to do the same stance as him and the same celebrations, of course, it’s difficult to model yourself on him because he’s one of the best to ever play football and with his stature and the way he can score headers. He can do a lot of stuff that is obviously difficult for others to do, but he was definitely my role model growing up.”
“As for Arsenal, I used to love the older generation of players like Thierry Henry. I loved Thierry. And because I was at Arsenal, I used to be able to go to games, and at that time, I loved Alexis Sanchez. He was one of my favourite players.”
Saka is one of Arsenal’s key players this season and looks to making his mark at the World Cup as well.
