Cristiano Ronaldo's Fantasy Premier League price revealed

Not only did Manchester United do their title hopes a favour by signing Cristiano Ronaldo, but they have also helped Fantasy Premier League managers across the globe.

As one of the most prolific goalscorers in history, it's safe to say that Ronaldo will be high on most players' wish lists, and with his return to Old Trafford being confirmed on deadline day, we now know just how much it'll cost to bring Ronaldo into our teams.

Listed as a forward, Ronaldo is going to set you back a cool £12.5m if you want him in your team.

That fee seems him tie Liverpool's Mohamed Salah for the honour of the most expensive player in the game and also makes Ronaldo the most valuable forward available.

Ronaldo narrowly edges out Harry Kane (£12.3m) and Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m), with Jamie Vardy coming in fourth at £10.5m.

It's obviously a huge sum of money to pay, but there are plenty of reasons to believe he could be worth it.

During his first spell at United, Ronaldo recorded over 200 points in each of his final three seasons at the club, with his total of 283 in 2007/08 a record at that point.

Ronaldo broke the 200-point mark in FPL in each of his last three seasons in England as well as setting a then record of 283 points in 2007/2008 - a tally which has since been broken by Frank Lampard (284), Luis Suarez (295) and, most recently, Salah (303).

He also averaged over seven points per game across his final three seasons, suggesting he's a guaranteed source of points for any manager.
