Former Arsenal player Paul Merson has stated that he would be "shocked" if forward Cristiano Ronaldo stayed with the team after the summer transfer window.
This was said by Merson prior to Thursday's Premier League match between Man United and Leicester City.
As the summer transfer window comes to an end, Ronaldo, 37, is still rumored to be leaving Manchester United.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is keen to compete in the UEFA Champions League, a competition Man United cannot give him this season after the Red Devils finished in sixth position in the Premier League table last season.
The Portugal captain has recently been linked with a move to Napoli and AC Milan, respectively.
“Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t start the last two games and Manchester United have won, so I expect him to be on the bench this time around as well,” Merson said, as quoted by Sportskeeda.
“His future is still not sorted and I’d be shocked if he stays at the club beyond the transfer window.”
