David Seaman has urged Arsenal to sign Cristiano Ronaldo as a free agent in the summer transfer window following his departure from Manchester United.
Earlier this week, the Red Devils announced that they have come to an agreement with the 37-year-old to terminate his contract by mutual consent.
Ronaldo returned to United from Juventus in the summer of 2021 and was out of contract at Old Trafford in the summer of 2023.
The Portugal international forward recently gave an explosive interview to TV presenter Piers Morgan on TalkTV in which he criticised the club’s owners as well as head coach Erik ten Hag.
Arsenal legend Seaman believes that Gunners manager Mikel Arteta should bring the 37-year-old former Real Madrid and Juventus forward to the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners are five points clear of second-placed and defending champions Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table at the moment.
The Sun quotes Seaman as saying: “Ronaldo is far from done and he would be perfect for Arsenal.
“I would applaud him because he’s obviously talking the truth. A lot of the stuff he came out with, is not stuff we haven’t heard .
“We have heard a lot of other experienced players moaning and criticising Man United for the way the ground is and the training… That shocked me and that shouldn’t be happening.
“He’s been all around the world and seen how everywhere has progressed and he comes back to his beloved Man United and nothing has changed.
“There was a lot of stuff in the interview that I didn’t know about the way he had been treated.”
Arsenal are rated 25/1 on Betfair to sign Ronaldo as a free agent in January.
