Jamie Carragher sends Cristiano Ronaldo warning to Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku and Mohamed Salah – .

Jamie Carragher believes Cristiano Ronaldo will compete with Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku for the Golden Boot this season after making a summer return to Manchester United.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner made his United debut this weekend, finding the net twice against Newcastle’s early fighters.

With his signing comes a lot of expectations, but as one of the greats to have played the game Ronaldo looks set to take the Premier League by storm once again.

Carragher believes that if he helps United to finish at the top of the division, he will become the best player of all time.

“I think if Cristiano Ronaldo can bring United to the title or the Champions League in the next couple of years, I think he will rise, if he can be raised in United eyes, to the bigger than they never had, ”he said, while speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“If he can be the player to bring back the title after 10 years, that’s not exactly what Cantona did – it was 26 – but I think it elevates him to a level, number one for me . “

Carragher went on to explain that he would continue to score goals at Old Trafford and therefore compete with Salah, Kane and Lukaku for the Golden Shoe.

“For Manchester United at the moment, without a doubt [his signing] that makes them a better team, you see their scoring record. But when you buy a 36-year-old to play on this team and he has the records he has, it’s about winning right now, not building for something else.

“There is no doubt for me he will challenge Salah, Kane and Lukaku for the golden boot. ”

All four challengers have started scoring goals so far, with Salah and Lukaku both already on three goals. But there is no doubt that they will be wary of Ronaldo moving forward.
