Rio Ferdinand tells why United won't sell Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford all summer.

The 37-year-old has been searching for options outside Old Trafford but United can’t afford losing a player like him.

If he eventually manages to find a possible suitor, Anthony Martial will only be United’s recognised striker.

Club legend Rio Ferdinand explains the reason why his former club is reluctant to sell Ronaldo this summer.

“He stays,” Ferdinand told his Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE show. “Man United can’t afford to let him go, that’s the problem. Say if we believe the reports, yeah, that Cristiano wants to leave – by the way, you have to respect that he’s had some issues personally, that’s why he didn’t go on the tour.

“But if the reports are to be believed that he wants to leave, where do Manchester United find 20 goals now in the transfer market? If they go into the window now, who are they going to buy that gets them 20 goals?

“The only reason why Manchester United don’t let Cristiano Ronaldo go now is because there will be a void of 20-plus goals in the team, you can’t just let that walk out the door with no reinforcements put back in the place.”
