Arsenal legend, Paul Merson, has said that he would be ‘shocked’ if Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, remains at the club beyond this summer transfer window.

Merson stated this ahead of Man United’s Premier League tie with Leicester City on Thursday.

Ronaldo, 37, is still linked with a move away from Man United as the summer transfer window approaches its end.

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 the sixth position on 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.”
