Jesse Lingard has revealed he would pick Cristiano Ronaldo as the person he'd choose to be for a day if he got the opportunity.

The 28-year-old is a lifelong United fan and grew up idolising Ronaldo during his first spell at the club between 2003 and 2009.

Ronaldo returned to the club this summer and already has three goals in his first four matches.

Speaking in an interview with England Football, Lingard admits he would love to spend a day in the life of his idol.

"If I could…be one person for a day, it would be… Ronaldo. Cristiano," he said.

"I just want to see his day-to-day life. I want to see what he eats, what he drinks, the way he trains. I would love to get an insight into that."
