Former Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has shared his thoughts on Cristiano Ronaldo’s current situation.
Over the few weeks it has been made clear that Cristiano Ronaldo is eyeing a Manchester United exit.
The Red Devils’ failure to secure Champions League football last season, along with United’s floundering in the transfer market, is said to have led to Ronaldo wanting to leave the club.
The striker did not return for pre-season training when he was expected to and he did not travel with the rest of the Red Devils’ squad for their current tour.
This leaves Manchester United in a bit of a sticky situation as they currently only have one striker, Anthony Martial, on their books without Ronaldo.
And if CR7 leaves, United do not appear to be in the market for a replacement yet, suggesting they may go into 2022/23 with just one striker.
However, Teddy Sheringham has offered his thoughts on the situation recently and he is of the opinion that United should sell Ronaldo if he wants to leave and then go sign two or three players:
“I half saw it coming,” Sheringham told Sportsmail.
“People are saying shall Ten Hag build his team around Ronaldo, but if he wants to go he goes. That opens up a whole new corridor for United.

“You could get in two or three players on that sort of wage and that is a lot of money they could spend each month.
“Life goes on, he wants to go and play somewhere else so get players in that you know who are going to be strong and stable throughout the season.
Ronaldo will have been watching what has been going on, he will feel the vibes from how it was in Fergie’s time and how the club is being run now and he’ll get the vibes that he does not like what he is seeing going on .
“If you stand still in football you fall and maybe Ronaldo sees the same. Where is that big signing coming from?
“If I’m Ronaldo now I’m saying go on then United, excite me… what are you doing in the transfer market.
“Ronaldo has got maybe another year or two years max at the top level and he deserves to enjoy his football at the top of his game.”
