Easily smash 30+ goals based on what? While he has scored 35 goals this season 9 of them came from penalties. We already have Bruno for that, so we are talking about a 36 year old player that without penalties scores around 25 goals per season in Italy but somehow he will came into the premier league as smash 30+ goals. Please explain that logic.You say this but I think he'd easily smash in 30+ goals. He has adapted his play to be an out and out striker, he's not really going to run the channels and he won't press but he'll get on the end of everything, which is really what we need because, as much as I love Cavani's work ethic off the ball, it's pretty pointless when we don't press well as a team. Why would it be humiliating?
I personally don't think it would interest him but you're talking about a player who essentially guarantees 30+ goals a season (Juve first season he 'only' got 28 in 43) and never has his stats padded (as much as I hate that term) through EL games - whereas Cavani, who I like FYI, didn't score in 4 CL apps, didn't score in 3 FA cups apps and has 9 in 25 PL games. That's not to knock Cavani and he's been injured/ come off the bench a load but our issue is chance creation/finishing and Ronaldo fixes (as much as a single player can) the latter.
He is undoubtfully still an important player and would be starting here, doesnt matter if he can still score or whatever he is declining with worldclass wages and if you acually see him playing you can see he is not the player he used to be. Obvioulsy the phyisical part of the game is affecting him. That combined with the fact that he left us at his prime and is just considering comming here because Juve is failing massively is a no from me. He wasnt interested when he left Madrid did he? we should not be best second to anyone not even Ronaldo.
