Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Manchester United alongside seven other players during the summer transfer window.
Former Manchester City right-back, Danny Mills made this claim.
Mills stated that the Red Devils might lose the likes of Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic at the end of the season.
Ronaldo has endured a hard time in Old Trafford despite scoring 22 goals for Manchester United in all competitions.
Mills while speaking with Football Insider said Ronaldo might be dropped with Erik Ten Hag taking over from Ralf Rangnick at the end of the season.
He said, “Pogba, Ronaldo, Bailly, Lindelof, Phil Jones, Lingard, Mata and Matic that is eight already, and that is without even thinking about it. Most of the contracts are up so it is very, very simple.
“Ronaldo might be a difficult one, but I am sure somebody would take him. Remember they didn’t pay too much for him. It’s not like they are going to take a huge hit in terms of a transfer fee.
“Ronaldo still has something to offer, but if you are talking about a rebuilding process, and he’s only going to be there for one season, what’s the point? He becomes more of a hindrance than a help. Every time you lose, it is ‘Why is Ronaldo not playing?’ That is the difficulty that you have. If you’re going to start afresh, give yourself that opportunity to start fresh.”
