Rooney: Man Utd need to sell Ronaldo this summer

Wayne Rooney has suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo should be allowed to leave Manchester United if that is what he wants. Ronaldo made it clear to United in July that he was interested in leaving in order to continue playing Champions League football, but has not yet been able to find a new club.

Now the five-time Ballon d’Or winner could start for United in their opening game of the season against Brighton on Sunday, with Anthony Martial out injured.

‘Man United should allow Ronaldo to go’

In an article for the Times, former United player Rooney urged the club to end the Ronaldo transfer saga and try to build a team that can challenge for the Premier League title in the coming years.

He said, “I think United should let Cristiano Ronaldo go. It’s not that Ronaldo can’t play in a Ten Hag team. He can play in any team. Ronny will always score you goals.

“But my personal view is that United aren’t ready to challenge for the title now, so the aim has to be to build a team that can win the league in the next three to four years, and you have to plan for that.
