UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov has urged Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo to reject a transfer to PSG and return to the Premier League this summer.

Ronaldo has entered the final year of his contract at Juventus and is reportedly looking at an exit.

Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move for the Real Madrid great, although, they are not interested in paying any transfer fee to Juventus.

With Ronaldo himself still silent on all the speculation going around the media, his friend, former UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has spoken up on where he prefers to see the 36-year-old legend play.

"In my opinion, it would be better if Cristiano changed team,” Nurmagomedov told Russian news outlet RT.

"No offense to Juventus fans. PSG? No, they have enough of their own stars. If he moved to England at the end of his career, I would be interested."

Since meeting Ronaldo in 2018, Khabib has been a close friend of the Portugal captain and the two are often seeing wishing the best for each other on social media on every special occasion relating to either of them.

While it remains to be seen what happens with Ronaldo's future, a Premier League move for the Portuguese would surely become one of the greatest player returns of all time.
