It is probably the headline that Man United fans wouldn’t want to read as Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has advised Cristiano Ronaldo to immediately make the switch from Old Trafford.
It isn’t the fact that he wants the Portuguese out of the Manchester club that is the problem but the fact he would be okay with the 5 time golden ball winner to make the switch to London rivals, Chelsea instead that is quite ironic.
The Arsenal legend believes it is more of win-win situation for both Chelsea and Manchester United should Ronaldo ultimately make the move.
Earlier in the week, the former Juventus player informed Man United of his desire to leave the club if a suitable offer came for him.
The Portuguese star has been linked with a lot of clubs around Europe, from the likes of Chelsea, Bayern Munich, AS Roma and Napoli and a more shocking one came when reports claimed his agent held discussions with Barcelona of the idea of signing the player.
“I think he might be tempted to leave as it goes – the way it is going at the moment,” Merson wrote in a column.
“We are hearing that he wants to play in the Champions League, so I think that might happen.
“I think it will be a win-win situation if he does go [to Chelsea]. I think it needs to get sorted sooner than later – the season’s like four or five weeks away.
“It’s been clear Man Utd won’t be in the Champions League for a long time. I don’t know why this wasn’t nipped in the bud early doors.
“It’s hard to drag on this long. I’d be a bit disappointed if I was a Man Utd fan.”
Whether the player ends up leaving the club this summer for Chelsea, it remains to be seen.
