Former Manchester United striker Dion Dublin believes Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Old Trafford this summer.

The Portuguese joined the Red Devils from Juventus last summer but the move didn’t live up to expectations. The 37-year-old’s future is up in the air with the imminent arrival of new manager Erik ten Hag.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Dublin said United could convince Ronaldo to stay by investing heavily in the squad this summer.

“I don’t know where Ronaldo goes from here. Does he go back to Italy or Spain, I don’t know where he goes. I find it hard to see him staying at United unless something happens. be done incredibly quickly. Again, I don’t know where he’s going. I think United will be lost without him, so hopefully he will (stay at) United, no doubt,” Dublin said.

He added:

“But I don’t know why he would stay, to be honest with you. Unless the new manager says £300m these players are coming, please stay. Otherwise, I think he’s gone.”

Ronaldo has been the club’s top goalscorer with 24 strikes in all competitions this season but is set to suffer his first campaign without a trophy in 12 years.


Manchester United could sign Ruben Neves for less than £100m, says Paul Robinson

Manchester United could sign Ruben Neves for well under £100million, according to former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson. The Portuguese midfielder is wanted at Old Trafford but Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Bruno Lage says Neves could cost £100million.

Speaking to Football Insider, however, Robinson said the Portuguese isn’t worth such an astronomical amount, adding:

“There are other issues they need to address. They shouldn’t pay £100million for Neves. There are other positions and players they need to prioritize, for me. When you look at the £100m paid for (Jack) Grealish and compare him to Neves, I don’t think Neves is in that £100m bracket.”

He added:

“I think Bruno Lage is trying to scare Manchester United. He clearly doesn’t want to lose Neves. He knows how important he is. I think a realistic price would be much less than that. If Man United really want him, I think a deal could be done for less.”

Former Manchester City full-back Danny Mills has slammed Jesse Lingard for his reaction after missing out on a goodbye at Old Trafford. Lingard is ready to leave Manchester United for Bosman this summer.

Speaking to Football Insider, Mills advised Lingard to grow up.

“No, it’s football, not a fairy tale. If he had decided to leave and sign for Newcastle in January, would he have taken to the pitch and thanked all the fans for their support? No. If he retired, and it was the end of his playing days and he hung up his boots, then, yes, that’s not a problem. I wouldn’t have a problem with that,” Mills said.

He added:

“What player who leaves on a free contract and clearly doesn’t want to stay at the club gets a standing ovation? There’s also clearly a financial implication. What are you waiting for? Look at Paul Pogba; he leaves and hasn’t been sent off You might be a bit disappointed, but that’s football, grow up.”
