Among all the transfer rumors regarding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club, no one really knows what is going to happen with him after he spent the entire summer looking for a club with the help of his agent Jorge Medes. Not one single offer has come through for the Portugal captain, who still wants to depart from the Theatre of Dreams.

The former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane, talked to ‘Off the Ball Podctast’ and gave his opinion on CR7: “He has made it clear that he wants to leave and play in the Champions League, but these things happen. When you are a manager, you don’t go looking for trouble, but trouble comes your way and I think that is what they are paid to do”.

The Irish legend believes the club would be all right if Cristiano leaves but recommends them to look for the right replacement: “I would say that if they move Ronaldo on in the next week or two, then the manager has put a marker down and it is fine, United will survive. They would need one or two replacements in because they can’t guarantee with Martial”.

Keane also says that, in case he stays, Ronaldo also needs to get rid of his negative attitude: His body language towards the end of last season wasn’t great, he has to improve on that. You have to stroke his ego a little bit and his behavior has to improve as a senior player, but I think if United decide, you can let him go”.

Roy Keane played for the Red Devils for 13 years after arriving in 1993 from Nottingham Forest. He became one of the fans’ favorite players and ended up being Manchester United captain for a while before leaving for Celtic in 2006 where he ended his career. Sir Alex Ferguson has said that he is the best player he ever worked with.
